Woman entrepreneur Sadhna Devi, from Nawada (नवादा) District of Bihar, got mentioned her name in Prime Minister’s monthly Radio programme Mann Ki Baat three years ago.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had encouraged her for being associated in the field of self-employment.
Talking to AIR News, Sadhna Devi said, lives of other women have changed in Khanwa village who are working on a technically better solar spinning wheel ( सोलर चरखा).
She says, praiseworthy words of the Prime Minister are still a source of inspiration for her and co-workers who are engaged in the spinning of thread.
Sadhna Devi said, due to government-provided solar spinning wheels, they are getting respectful income in a remote village which was facing the curse of unemployment.
