Remember Rakkhi Devi? the granny who built a toilet herself?

It was not long back when the 87 year old Rakkhi Devi from Badali village of Udhampur made news. She was in news for constructing a toilet for her family with her own hands since she lacked both money and resources.Rakkhi Devi the granny who built a toilet

Thankfully, her efforts have gone neither waste nor unrewarded. On recognising her swachh efforts, Deputy Commissioner, Udhampur, Ravinder Kumar has felicitated her as a Swachh mascot for the state and handed over Rs. 12,000 to the octogenarian for constructing a concrete toilet on her own.

Commending the spirits of Rakkhi Devi, the DC says,

“It is time for people to change their traditional mind set about building a toilet. I was surprised to know that an 87-year-old woman built the toilet herself without any help. I salute this spirit. I urge everyone to come forward and contribute their bit in keeping the village clean and green. What Rakkhi Devi has done is an incredible thing; she is an inspiration for all of us. Collective efforts by each one of us can help in making all the villages ODF in India”
