Social Awareness!
New Delhi / Kurubhat (Chandigarh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, 21st February 2016 praised a 104-year-old woman Kunwar Bai from a village from Kotabharri  in Chhattisgarh's Dhamtari district who sold her goats for constructing toilet at her home and touched her feet in honour of her social awareness.

Prime Minister felicitated her for her efforts to make her village open defecation free, during the launch of 'Rurban Mission' at Kurrubhat village in the state's Naxal-hit Rajandgaon district.

Two development blocks - Ambagarh Chowki and Chhuriya of Rajnandgaon were also declared open defecation free by the PM during the programme.

According to PTI, "An elderly woman of 104 years who stays in a remote village, does not watch TV or read papers, but the message of building toilets under clean India mission somehow reached her. She sold off her goats to build toilet at home and also encouraged others from the village to build," Modi said

Kunwar Bai had sold-off her 8-10 goats to build two toilets at her home. Subsequently, she started showing other villagers the toilets at her home while informing them about its importance. Now every home in the village has toilets.

Calling it as a major change taking place at the roots of the country, Modi said, "The country is changing. It seems when a woman at a remote village makes efforts to fulfil dream of clean India mission, she is an inspiration for everyone, especially youths."
