Biography

Kiemsima Kharmawlong claimed to have been born on 17 September 1900 in India. Her relatives call her "Mei-ieid" (grandmother in Khasi language). In 2011, her family claimed to have confirmed her age by checking her EPIC. They subsequently celebrated her 111th birthday at St John’s Parish Hall.

At the age of 112, in February 2013, she voted in Shillong during Meghalaya's legislative assembly election. She was reported to not see and hear well, but she could walk with only a little support from other persons. At this time, she had a daughter, 4 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and 70 great-great-grandchildren.

Kharmawlong died in Shillong, Meghalaya, India on 23 June 2015, at the age of 114 years, 279 days. If validated, she would have been the third-oldest living person in Asia, after an 115-year-old anonymous woman and Nabi Tajima. She would also have been the sixth-oldest living person in the world.
