105-year-old Kunwar Bai, who was felicitated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for building toilet by selling off her goats, has been chosen as the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ mascot. Prime Minister Modi will felicitate Kunwar Bai at a function in the national capital to mark `Swachhta Diwas’ on September 17.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had in February touched her feet during a rally in Rajnandgaon.

The Prime Minister, who was in Chhattisgarh to launch the ambitious Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Rurban (rural-urban) Mission, felicitated Kunwar Bai from Kotabharri village of Dhamtari and then touched her feet to seek blessings. 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.

She demonstrates ultimate modern and civilized thinking.In no better way importance of sanitation and hygiene can be emphasized.Truly India is nation of numerous such heroes, who think beyond benefits and costs to highlight what needs to be done must be done.
