Indians Share Women Achievers' Stories After PM Modi Talks About 'Bharat Ki Laxmi' in 'Mann Ki Baat'
In his address, PM Modi pushed for women empowerment and said, “This Diwali, Let us celebrate Bharat ki Laxmi.”

On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation in his monthly 'Mann Ki Baat', where he addressed a number of topics including e-cigarettes, Lata Mangeshkar, the ban of plastics, 'Bharat ki Laxmi' and so on. This was PM Modi's first address after he returned to Delhi from his US visit.

In his address, PM Modi pushed for women empowerment and said, “This Diwali, Let us celebrate Bharat ki Laxmi.”

“Can we, this time around in society, organise programmes to felicitate daughters in villages, towns and cities? It could be in the form of a public function,” Modi said as he urged citizens to share stories of women achievers they knew of with the hashtag, #BharatKiLaxmi on social media. Essentially, PM Modi wants everyone to highlight the achievements of women around the country.

Soon, #BharatkiLaxmi began trending on social media with people tweeting stories of women who have excelled in their fields. From Kalpana Chawla to Rajkumari Devi (who is popularly known as Kisan Chachi), from Arunima Sinha to Harika Dronavilli (the second Indian woman to gain the men’s grandmaster title), netizens dug up stories which celebrate women.
