On Women's Day, PM Modi tells about the woman who inspired him

New Delhi, March 8: It's Women's Day and Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to his Twitter handle to wish the women by announcing who inspires him the most; in his own unique way of course. PM Narendra Modi took to Twitter to talk about a 106-year-old woman who had inspired him, and urged others to "write about some women who inspire you."

Kunwar Bai, a resident of Chhattisgarh, sold her goats - her sole source of livelihood - to build a toilet in her village.

The toilet, the first in the village, was built in 15 days and cost Rs 22,000.

"Her contribution towards a Swachh Bharat can never be forgotten. I am deeply inspired by her noble gesture," shared PM Modi.

"I will always cherish the time when I had the opportunity to seek Kunwar Bai's blessings during one of my visits to Chhattisgarh," he added. 

Kunwar Bai passed away earlier this year, but "lives on in the hearts and minds of all those who are passionate towards fulfilling Bapu's dream of a clean India."
