Throughout his work, his health and a seemingly unlimited stamina are crucial. Col. Rangi places his belief in basic Indian food, with fruits, salads, sprouts, vegetables, milk, curd and soya forming a large portion of his diet. Though he leads a mostly strict regimen — he fasts once a week and his diet is mostly vegetarian — he does treat himself from time to time with meat when he eats out.
Col. Rangi also attributes his peak fitness to regular exercise. For instance, he regularly plays pickup basketball with the neighbourhood children. Although he was initially cautious on the basketball court because of his strength, Col. Rangi quickly discovered the kids had more stamina so the playing field was more level. He sits out of the more strenuous matches, but he still enjoys the physical activity and the sense of community the basketball games bring, too.
He also goes for 8- to 10-kilometre walks and practices yoga, following his physician's advice to keep fit.
