One of the most cherished blessings we give any one is, to live for hundred years. But then learning from the lives lived meaningfully and long is not easy. Some have lost the ability to listen and talk but some have their faculties still very vibrant. In many parts of the world, average life expectancy is increasing. With the years, the wish to stay forever young seems to be replaced by the wish to grow old gracefully. How does a person live to be 100 years old? What is the secret behind a good and long life? Do we find satisfaction, equanimity or even happiness in a long life?  What has been the strife that many of the centenarians have lived through due to famine, plague and other calamities at the turn of the last century. Can we find wisdom in foolishness when age approaches a century? And what can we learn from them about climate change, living frugally and coping with hardships and difficulties. SRISTI’s study of  centenarians is a collection of profiles of people who have lived 100 years and longer. We have asked them many questions and will ask many more. May they live long and teach us lessons about a sustainable lifestyle …

If you know a person, 100 years and older, who would like to become part of SRISTI’s centenarian project, send an email to

  1. Respected Sir/Madam,

    Can we make a database of such centenarians’ innovative ideas?

    For instance, there may be individuals who shared their wisdom regarding a herbal formulation.

    This is just an indicator, though.


  2. Thanks.

    Please indicate what is meant by “my interest”. Do I need to indicate my preference for the area where I would like to travel?
