At 85 working for the betterment of the society

At the age of 85 when some people feel it difficult to keep themselves fit and active, some others go a way ahead and work towards the development of the society. Ms. Lily Thomas is a perfect example of the later category. She is a lawyer by profession and has been raising her voice since 2005 against criminalization of politics ( Her efforts have finally resulted in the passing of the recent landmark judgement by Supreme Court whereby politicians having criminal charges against them will be debarred from holding elected positions and from contesting elections (with some clauses).

She is a perfect example of active and productive ageing, who at the age of 85 years is leading an active life and is contributing towards the welfare of the society.
