Kartari said, ‘We have always eaten good wholesome food, there’s nothing artificial in our diet, things like butter, milk and yoghurt are what we like.

‘We just get along with each other and we are family focused, its simple.’

One of their children Paul, said,  ‘People are so impressed by my parents. They always ask me: “What do you eat? What are you feeding them and how do they stay so healthy?”

‘I tell them: “If I knew that I would be eating the same thing myself”.’
