Gita's story


We’re moved by Gita’s beliefs on age and beauty, and her many achievements in life, including time spent in the army. It was Gita’s 61st birthday during the campaign shoot and certainly one that she won’t forget.

Gita is passionate about her job as a physician, which enables her to create close bonds with her community. She also runs her own charitable clinic for the workers where she lives. 

Growing up in Kashmir, Gita learned to sail and spent many holidays sailing with her husband. She has two grown-up children and a beautiful grandchild, all of whom she is proud of.
