Mrs Mathkar goes trekking

leave a comment »

When other women of her age are taking morning walks or participating in laughter sessions in parks, Mrs Mathkar is trekking to some difficult destination in Maharashtra with boys and girls half her age. Those who have been with her on treks talk of the Dombivali resident’s enthusiasm and her knowledge of nature. Not for this grandmother any paraphernalia associated with regular walkers. True, she wears walking shoes but is always dressed in a colourful saree. Her son Bhupendra is also a skilled trekker. But when his mom is trekking all eyes are on her as people exclaim: “Wow! If you have the zeal, then age knows no bar!”
