                  Georgia Government have put forward a new claim that a woman from a remote mountain village here  turned 130 on 9/07/2010, making her the current  oldest person on Earth. Antisa Khvichava is  from western Georgia was born on July 8, 1880,She used to work as a Tea and Corn Picker in 1965 but now she has retired from that job.
      
       Antisa Khvichava's age couldn't immediately be independently verified as she lost her  birth certificate .. She has lived a century which saw great  revolutions and a civil war which followed the collapse of the Russian Empire.But Meurnishvili showed two old  Soviet-era documents that he claims to be  attest to her age.  officials, neighbors, friends, and descendants backed up her claim as the world's top senior.
          
    The World Gerontology Research Group currently recognizes 114-year-old Eugenie Blanchard of France, as the world's oldest person. The organization is yet to examine Khvichava's claim.Khvichava doesnt have a huge family,she has a son, 10 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Khvichava's 70-year-old son Mikhail apparently was born when his mother was 60. She said she also had two children from a previous marriage, but says they died of hunger during World War II.
       
 Lets hope she gets her claim gets validated and become the official World's oldest person.
