Well the above questions brings forth a range of emotions from people – some times even numbers in the range of 01 to 100+.
Each time I hear a number, it tells me that number is wrong! The reason is simple.
My biology teacher taught me that a male sperm meets up with female egg – dishum and a new cell (xygote) is produced. The 2 cells which had nucleai , protiens et all merge and form a life force or rather its a continuation of the original sperm and egg. Now that cells were created by respective biological father / mother many moons before – meaning a child life was kindled at the birth time of its parents – the cycle goes backwards and that means you and me are many Zillions of years old!!!!
Fuzzy as it may be unless we add the caption – christining of zygote or conception of a kid till date is x years and y months, it becomes wrong to say am only so many years old!!
Maybe thats why our elders skipped this question and said ‘age is all about ones mind state’!!
