“I still have this great feeling that there’s still more in store for me,” said Pinky. She is 63, yet she still has a girlish mien when she dances.
Her marriage has lasted 44 years, beating the odds that teen marriages wouldn’t work and bore seven children.
She was in her 40s when she was raising her seventh and youngest child in the US without any household help.

It also taught them to be responsible for their actions.”
