Kareng Teronpi is a resident of village Rongmongwe Sorpokathar in Karbi Anglong district of Assam and is believed to have completed her 120th birthday. Her eldest daughter is around 90 years old and stays nearby. She has seen four generations and the entire family consists of more than 60 people.
"I don't know when I was born, maybe many years ago," said Kareng Teronpi.
"Based on details from our uncles and aunts and grandparents we have calculated her age, although we don't have any birth records as such," said Docsingh Kathar, one of the many grandsons of Kareng.
"She requires at least two glasses of Hor (fermented rice beer). She is a vegetarian and never eats spicy food," he added.
