This began with the PM sending Women’s Day greetings-

1. Sneha Mohandoss: Hunger activist and founder of NGO Food Bank

Faithful to Mahatma Gandhi’s ideology, Chennai-based social worker Sneha Mohandoss was the first of seven women to handle Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account on International Women’s Day. She insisted on feeding at least one poor citizen and emphasized zero food wastage. In a tweet, Mohandoss said: “When I do what I am passionate about I feel inspired! I want to encourage my fellow citizens, especially women, to come forward and join hands with me. I encourage everybody to feed at least one poor person and lead to a hunger-free planet.” Mohandoss, a 23-year-old visual communication student currently employed in an event management organization, is running a FoodBank-India campaign to link people who want to support hungry people with home-cooked, healthy food in Chennai.

2. Malvika Iyer- Disability activist

The second person who managed social media accounts from Prime Minister Modi was the bomb blast survivor Malvika Iyer. Iyer, the second woman to run Modi’s social media account, says in her pinned tweet, “Say hello to Dr. Malvika Iyer Heart suit. PS: Do you see that bone protruding from my right hand to everyone who has been wondering about how I type? That’s my one and only’ extraordinary finger’ I have typed my Ph.D. thesis with it.” Iyer survived a horrific bomb blast in Bikaner, Rajasthan, at the age of 13. This did not, however, stop her from chasing her dreams.

She is the recipient of the president’s highest civilian award for women,’ Nari Shakti Puraskar.’ Iyer is an international motivating speaker, a TEDX speaker, an accessible fashion model and a global shaper at the Global Shapers Community (the World Economic Forum initiative).

Pawar addressed Maharashtra’s rural Gormati art through the Twitter handle of the Prime Minister and demonstrated through a video how she inspired thousands of women artisans to work under her guidance with 90 self-help groups (SHGs). “There’s a struggle behind it (Banjara handicraft), and Banjara handicrafts have turned into languishing art,” she tweeted.

6. Kalavati Devi – From Kanpur, dedicated life to making her village open defecation free

Kalavati Devi from Kanpur had devoted her life to liberating her village from open defecation. She did so by so far constructing over 4,000 toilets. Kalavati Devi was the 6th person under the # SheInspiresUs campaign to manage PM’s social media.

She is responsible for building over 4,000 toilets in Kanpur and its surrounding villages. She tweeted in Hindi, “A living hell was the place where I used to live. But, there was a strong conviction that we can change this situation through cleanness.” Her indomitable spirit did not shake, although she was only a homeowner and took care of her elder daughter and her two grandchildren after her husband and son in law died.

7. Veena Devi – Bihar’s Munger village Sarpanch 

The Seventh Women Achiever to manage PM’s social media was Bihar’s Munger village Sarpanch Veena Devi. With her story of starting small-scale Mushroom farming, she inspired people to have their own livelihood. Finally, this work made her self-independent, self-reliant and empowered.

In addition to the growing of mushrooms, farmers have also been taught organic farming, composting and organic insecticides. Women in the region are also taking up cattle rearing because of her bravery and positive attitude.

Devi’s efforts have seen the farmers opt for mushroom production in 105 villages. It also offers digital training and has taught more than 700 women to use cell phones.
