My name is Rajkumari. I am the head of the Chinmaya Shri Guru Ravidas Mahila Mandal in Block Indora Panchayat Surajba. I have been associated with CORD since 2000. We learned a lot from being associated with CORD. With the blessings of Gurudev ji and the guidance of Dr. Didi ji and Narendra Bhai ji, our confidence and morale increased. We did not let anyone’s shadow fall on women’s power in our country, society, or village. In such an incident, I am going to tell you about my panchayat. The incident took place in 2022, when I reached the panchayat house at 11:00 a.m. according to my time to celebrate Republic Day on January 26. When I asked when it was time to hoist the flag, a retired soldier said, How do women know? When is the flag hoisted? Then I said, It is an army and it is a village here; village rules will be followed in the village then? Do people know that women only know how to cook and wash utensils? No one spoke, but I could not bear it, so I said Was Indira Gandhi not a woman? She was running the entire country, and then he said that four bodyguards used to walk with her; then she used to walk; then I said that bodyguards used to walk, but it was Indira Gandhi herself who took the decisions. Who is this, where has he come from, and who called him? Then the head and deputy head said that he is from another panchayat and has been called to tie the flag rope. I said, There is no soldier in our panchayat; no one knows how to tie the flag rope. Can’t find the answer? I said that after today, I would tie it to the rope of the flag. And after that, when August 15th came, I myself, along with the members of my Mahila Mandal, tied the rope and demonstrated, What can’t women do?
