But 92-year-old Bhanumathi Rao proves that we couldn't be more wrong. Rao is a living example of how age is nothing but just a number. Born in 1923, the vibrant lady in her 90s charmed the audience as she danced on stage with perfect poise and graceful moves, just a day after her 92nd birthday.
Rao has had a thriving career as a Bharatanatyam and Kathakali dancer, and the nonagenarian still pursues dancing with the same passion. Having performed in different countries, she was also chosen as the Artist of Eminence by the Ministry of Culture.
