    Is this Puneet, the guy who pedalled on an exercise bike and ran past in a treadmill, and had cardiac arrest as a result. Wonderful tech-suvvy equipment and exercise regimes copying from the land of Yankees, where the car culture have left the Yanks obese and non-functional, and India following this Yankee culture?
    All kinds of Ratnas, awarded to those who foolishly indulged in excesses!

    Sir MV lived for 100 years, never had this exercise fad, except walks and following a strict diet and no alcohol or meat. In other words, very clean living. Why can’t the government promote Sir MV’s example of living?
