Seniors who think retirement doesn’t suit them and still working

Recently, we have grown accustomed to the idea that older people enjoy a life of leisure. They enjoy every moment of their life by spending leisure time watching TV, pay more attention to housework and food preparation whereas other people have to make time for such activities from their work. But there are some people for whom the pendulum seems to be swinging the other way i.e. despite their age; they aren’t ready for a life of leisure.

Following is the list of few of those people who are still holding on to their career. The short list of seniors include
