Kerala Mourns the Passing of 121-Year-Old Kunjeerumma

Kerala is in mourning as it bids farewell to Kunjeerumma, the world’s oldest woman at the age of 121. Hailing from Muttikal in Alppattappadiyil, Edayur’s Pookattiri, Kunjeerumma passed away on Saturday, leaving behind a legacy that spanned more than a century. Born on June 2, 1903, as per her Aadhaar card records, Kunjeerumma was a testament to longevity and resilience.

Remarkably, Kunjeerumma had received recognition from the Election Commission for her remarkable dedication to the democratic process. She was honored with a certificate for being one of the voters who cast their ballots the most number of times. Her commitment to civic duty was just one facet of her extraordinary life.

Although Kunjeerumma held the title of the world’s oldest woman, according to the Guinness Book of Records, her passing marks the end of an era. Maria Branyas of Spain, aged 116, currently holds the record as the oldest person in the world. Kunjeerumma’s funeral was held at the Juma Masjid Kabarstan, where friends, family, and well-wishers gathered to pay their respects.

Survived by her husband, the late Kalampan Syedali, and a large family including children and in-laws, Kunjeerumma leaves behind a cherished memory in the hearts of those who knew her. Her remarkable journey through life serves as an inspiration to many, reminding us of the precious gift of time and the importance of cherishing every moment. As Kerala bids farewell to Kunjeerumma, her legacy of resilience, strength, and longevity lives on in the hearts of those she touched.
