Done it again

Let me tell you in gleeful numbers 
that it is never too late to tie the knot
Age is never a factor that encumbers
A virile man from taking a pot shot

This poet had penned a verse not too far back
About the Haryana farmer who married at 84 alack
And fathered a son at the ripe old age of 94
Little did I know then what more was in store

He has gone and done it again in 2 years' time
At 96, another son; if you giggle, he doesn't care a dime
Three cheers to Ramajit Raghav the Haryanvi stud
For scoring twice where many another has proved to be a dud 
The couple named the first child Vikramajeet
And the new arrival to rhyme is named Ranjeet 

The secret of Raghav's energy is certainly not Boost
Nor does he eat chicken which come home to roost 
Half kilo of almonds is what he eats every day
Washed down with 2 litres of milk, his mainstay 
Chapatis and vegetables comprise his daily meal
Which has given this one time wrestler a body of steel
Alcohol and tobacco he scrupulously eschews
For ordinary mortals such abstinence will give the blues

A cheer to his spouse Shakuntala Devi aged 52
For this signal achievement in which she played a role too
