As per Indian "Limca Book of Records", oldest person of India is "Habib Miyan", who celebrated his 138th birthday last sunday. He is a resident of Pink City "Jaipur" in Rajasthan state of India. People from all walks of life thronged his residence in Jaipur to greet him on that day.

Miyan cut a cake, firecrackers were burst and 139 balloons released to mark the celebrations, joined in by people from as far as Indian States of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, as also chairman of the Rajasthan Minority Commission Sardar Jasbir Singh.

"Kisi raees ki mehfil ka jikra kya hai amir, khuda ke ghar bhi na jayenge bin bulawe ke (May you discuss a party of a rich man, I will not even go to God's house without invitation)," Miyan quipped at his house.

Asked about his eating habits, he said: "I am open to any kind of food," but added that he was a great fan of meat preparations, even if these were considered too oily for his age.

"Gosht roti khao, Allah ke gun gao," Miyan said.

Habib Miyan is a very optimistic person, said Dr R K Verma, an orthopedic surgeon who had treated him when he fractured his hip six months back. "He has recovered well."

Miyan`s family comprising dozens of members reside in a very small dwelling and he had met President A P J Abdul Kalam during the latter`s visit to the city to appeal for a house.

"I am happy that he spared some time for me." Miyan said.
