Madurai (Tamil Nadu) [India], July 13 (ANI): It is said that age is just a number, and this Madurai native is proof!
An inspiration for many, Palani teaches and practices wrestling at his local 'akhada' in Palanganatham area of the city.
Speaking to ANI, the 93-year-old, who began the institute in 1994, said no machines are used in the exercise regime.
"It has been more than 75 years we have been teaching the technique. I am 93 years old now and even at this age, I still wrestle to keep myself fit and motivate my students," he said.
Palani caters to both old and young men who come to learn the tactics of wrestling from him.
