One of the biggest fears that most people have when trying new things is whether it’s too late to do that particular activity.

Here is a video shared by Anand Mahindra of a woman who is 97 years old and who recently went paramotoring!

97-YO Woman Goes Paramotoring For The First Time

It is not every day that you see such an amazing instance. A woman who is 97 years old recently went paramotoring. The video of her bravery is now making rounds on the Internet. So much so that even Anand Mahindra shared it on X (formerly known as Twitter). Honestly, we’re not even half her age and we would still hesitate to do something so brave.

Clearly, this grandma isn’t afraid to live her life to the fullest! According to subsequent posts made in the comment section, this old lady has lived quite a life and is quite the warrior. Her name is Usha Thuse and though she is from Nagpur, she currently lives in Pune. As per the posts, she was widowed early in her marriage and single-handedly managed to raise four daughters.

She was a school teacher but she also assumed her husband’s role in the excise department after his passing. She is now a happy and content old maid who is clearly unafraid of living her life to the fullest. Paying no heed to what society will think of her, she continues to live her best life and do the things she’s always wanted to do, including but not limited to paramotoring.

He then went on to say that the lady was his hero of the day.

Anand Mahindra was not the only one who was so inspired by the old lady. Many people took to the comment section to express their admiration for the old lady. Many people saluted her while others called her “zinda dil.” It is pretty evident that the old lady has managed to win thousands of hearts with this inspiring yet simple act of hers.
