I knew she would make waves. The biggest challenge for the new sarpanch was drinking water in the village. Soda village was once known for its large water bodies but those water bodies had dried out due to successive droughts. After becoming sarpanch, the first task that she took upon herself was to desilt and revive the old water bodies. The villagers also joined her in the task voluntarily, an instance of her leadership and popularity.
I wish this young lady enters politics after doing social service and earning name and fame.Thanks for an informative blog.
Thanks for dropping by... how are you & where are you now.
I too think that college educated modernised women should go back to villages & lead from the front. They should show village sarpanchs that just waiting for the liquor basket on election day or distributing color TVs or generously donating Rs.100 sarees is not going to change their village.
What's the name of the Kanakapura MP with journalistic background from KAR that had potentials but went into oblivion?
Dear Suresh Rao,
That is really a great news.Many women should get inspired by this leading example and instead of going behind money making activities involve themselves in social development ans women's empowerment.The sad part is that when they realise the power and glory that the officaldom imparts, they tend to follow the beaten path of the male species. Karnataka has a minister but she soiled her reputation in building up her own personality. The first time M.P. who got elected from Kanakapura (with a journalistic back-ground) in the last election held out a lot of expectation only to go in to oblivion later !
