World's Oldest Dad India 94

World's Oldest Dad India 94 - He believes the secret to eternal youth is half a kilo of butter washed down with three litres of milk every day.

And Ramjit Raghav must be doing something right. At the age of 94, he claims, he has just celebrated the birth of his first child.

Mr Raghav, from Haryana in northern India, hailed the arrival of son Karamjit as ‘God’s gift’. It would make him the world’s oldest father.

He and his wife Shakuntala Devi, believed to be in her late 40s, hope to go one further by trying for a second child next year.

Mr Raghav, who was a wrestler in his youth, is confident that he will be around to see his little boy grow up, saying: ‘I will die only if a black snake bites me and that is very unlikely.

‘Visit me after ten years and you will find me in the same appearance.

‘My daily diet comprises three litres of milk, half a kilo of almonds and half a kilo of ghee [clarified butter].’

But some doctors have questioned the validity of Mr Raghav’s claim.

Dr Paramjeet Singh, chief medical officer at Kharkhoda Civil Hospital, where the baby was born in November, said: ‘Having babies at such an age is a remote possibility. It can’t be ruled out.’

If it is true, Mr Raghav will beat current record holder Nanu Ram Jogi, an Indian farmer who fathered his 21st child at the age of 90 in 2007.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
