SHE is believed to be the oldest South Indian alive in the country.
According to the Then India Sanmarga Ikya Sangam, they do not have any record of anyone older than Deogi Nair.
Considering her age, TISI Sangam's former national president Sada Sivan Naicker visited the 102-year-old at Naitonitoni, Navua, last week.
He stepped down from his position at the TISI Sangam on Tuesday, earlier stating he would do so to contest the September election under the National Federation Party banner.
"I had always wanted to meet her on behalf of our organisation and even personally. It was a pleasure when I finally met her and spoke to her," he said.
"As far as the Sangam records are concerned, she is the oldest South Indian alive in the country. And it was good to see that she's in good health and well looked after by her daughters and extended family members.
"We told our members some time back to let us know if they are aware of any South Indians who have crossed the one century mark and are still alive but nothing came up."
The centurion spends most of her time looking after her four-month-old great, great grandson.
