Modi remembers Chhattisgarh's Kunwar Bai on Women's Day

Friday, March 09, 2018

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said several women had left an "indelible mark in the history of mankind" through their "exemplary deeds" and paid tribute to the late Kunwar Bai, the mascot of his flagship Clean India mission.

In a series of posts on Twitter, the prime minister also urged people to write about women who had inspired them and use the hash tag ‘#SheInspiresMe’.

“Through their exemplary deeds, several women have left an indelible mark in the history of humankind. They continue to inspire generations. I urge you to write about some women who inspire you. #SheInspiresMe,” Modi tweeted on International Women's Day.

Lauding Kunwar Bai, who passed away at the age of 106 earlier this year, the prime minister said she sold her goats, reportedly her only asset, to build two toilets at her home in Chhattisgarh's Kotabharri village.

Her contribution towards a Swachh Bharat (Clean India) “cannot be forgotten”, he said.
