The 19th Inspirational Woman that we have today is Chavvi Rajawat, who was known to be the youngest Sarpanch from Village Soda in Rajasthan. She is the First Woman Sarpanch with an MBA Degree.
Chhavi Rajawat was the Sarpanch of her village Soda, 60 kilometres from Jaipur. Though holding an elected post, Chhavi is not affiliated to any political party. The Panchayats are officially supposed to be non-partisan and Panchayat elected representatives thereby, do not fit into the bracket of mainstream politics. She has been reported to be the youngest person to hold the office of sarpanch.
Rajawat was born in Jaipur, Rajasthan. She is from a small village called Soda in Malpura tehsil, Tonk district.
Chhavi Rajawat, studied at Rishi Valley School in Andhra Pradesh; Mayo College Girls’ School in Rajasthan and Lady Shri Ram College for Women in Delhi. After her MBA from Sri Balaji Society Pune, she worked for companies such as Times of India, Carlson Group of Hotels, Airtel, etc. Today, she is the Sarpanch (elected head of the Village Council) in Soda village, Tonk district, Rajasthan and, is the first woman Sarpanch in India with an MBA degree.
Rajawat left her corporate job and city life to help develop rural India. She became the Sarpanch (Head of a Village) of Soda, a village sixty kilometers from Jaipur, Rajasthan. Her grandfather Brig Raghubir Singh had been Sarpanch of the same village 20 years prior to Chhavi’s elections. She is very good in meeting with people and she is taking a lead in development of Soda village. After becoming the Sarpanch of the village, she has implemented many projects successfully i.e. rain water harvesting, toilets facilities in most of the houses, etc.
