Chhavi Rajawat, MBA

Elected Representatives of Gram Panchayat Soda

Elected Representatives of Gram Panchayat Soda

How many of us know of people who have completed their higher studies, worked in corporate sector, and quit their job to engage in social service? It is a minuscule segment of our educated population, and one that is gradually on the rise.

Chhavi Rajawat, studied at Rishi Valley School in Andhra Pradesh; Mayo College Girls’ School in Rajasthan and Lady Shri Ram College in Delhi. After her MBA from 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. She may be the first woman Sarpanch in India with an MBA degree, but a career in politics is not on her radar.

“I didn’t have to think about it much because Soda is where I belong and it needs me. In fact, the villagers broke all barriers of caste, gender and religion to ensure my victory. In Soda, not even one per cent of the voters are from my own caste. They [the villagers] wanted to prove that development is the most important factor for which they can overlook all politically created differences.” she says regarding her transition from corporate sector to social sector.

Her grandfather Brig. (retd) Raghubir Singh was unanimously elected sarpanch of Soda village. Rajawat says that her village has seen little development since his retirement 20 years ago. She is determined to improve the conditions for her villagers. Her priorities include, providing access to drinking water, reforestation, improved health services, education, alternate job opportunities, electricity, and construction of proper roads in Soda.

“I am just a village girl who has had an opportunity to study in some of the best institutions in the country and has only gone back home to work with and for her people. It’s as simple as that.”

Being a sarpanch doesn’t pay her much so she continues to work at the family-run Hotel Kailrugji in Jaipur and the Equest Horse Riding Academy she set up in Jaipur. Her message for the youth of India:

“Don’t run away from your roots because that is your foundation and the nation’s foundation too. If you want to make a difference, you have got to start at the bottom. There is so much one can do.”

    Dear Ms. Rajawat,

    I came across an article on you on TOI, and then saw an interview on youtube by South-South News. I am extremely impressed by your courage and vision. Learning about the living conditions in your village was heartbreaking, specially the lack of proper education for children. I hope and pray that you and your supporters will find the resources necessary to transform your village into a place which will become a shining example for the hundreds of thousands of other rural areas in India which need leaders like you. God bless you and all that you are doing for your people, and through them, for all of India.

    I don’t know what I can do to help, but I would very much like to do something!

    My best wishes for all your endeavours
    Raghvendra Sahai

    I am working in company but wants to do what you are doing for your village.

  16. Very Commendable, good to see leadership evolving from the roots of our country. Best wishes for your future plans.

  17. Dear Chhavi ji,

    I am originally from Village – HUDAS (28 kms from LADNUN- DISTRICT NAGAUR) .My father came to work in Guwahati (Assam) in the year 1979. Its been 32 years since he has been working here. But still we have full contacts with our relatives and we make sure that we go to HUDAS twice a year.

    My elder brother (Niraj Pareek) also had a best of education just like you- schooling from WELHAM BOYSs’ SCHOOL, Dehra Dun – College from JAIN COLLEGE FROM BANGALORE & Post Graduation from XLRI, Jamshedpur. He worked in Accenture for more than 2 years in their HR Team. Then he also wanted work for the poor of our country. So, he left his well settled job and worked for a Micro-Finance company at Lucknow. After sometime, he launched his own Microfinance Company( ) along with others in Lucknow. They have also opened one Agri product company ( ) in Lucknow. They would be opening a dairy soon. He is doing all this so to could garner enough experience so that he could do something which would benefit our village people.

    I have been reading about you for long in the newspapers. You are doing great. I know someday, even my brother would leave all his work and be Sarpanch or in someway in Politics and will serve the poor.

    I am very proud of you and my brother as well.

    I will try to be like you people.


    Pradeep Pareek

  18. Great job Ms. Chavvi Rajawat !
    Wish you all success ahead.
    You have given enough inspiration to me, i will definitely do the miracle which you have done.
    Actuallymy dream is to serve the nation, society. whatever i have learnt, just wanna give it back to the society.
    My grandfather is working towards upliftment of rurals in Rajasthan (villages near Udaipur) & he is successful to some extent.
    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any support.
    i know you are independent person but still any help or support from my side will give me good feeling.
    Thank you & Regards…….

  19. Hi…I feel really glad to know that there are people like you who’re this much connected to their roots & doing their best to enrich life of their people like you… I must say that Chhavi Rajawat will be a role model for our generation especially girls…!!
    I once again congratulate you & the people of Soda Village…!!

  20. To Chavvi Rajawat,

    I’d like to congratulate you and the villagers for such a great achievement in your village. I just read this article about you and your village on and was very very proud, being an Indian, that an educated youth has stood up for the cause of the village. Makes me believe that there are a lot of people who are the ANNA HAZARE’S of this great country.

    I am a social activist and come from a village called Carmona in Goa which is run by uneducated puppets of the MLA of the constituency. Any suggestions given by educated youth has been suppressed by the uneducated goondas and such of the local MLA, who dominate the gram sabha proceedings. It has led to a situation that only these people now take decisions of the village.

    Reading this article about you gives me a case study and hope that education plays a major role in development at the top level. I will surely encourage educated youth to contest the forth coming elections and try and bring my village at least on the e-panchayat program.

    May God continue to Bless you’ll.

    Wishes from,
    Romeo Telles

  21. Hi…congrats on carrying on the project at such a brilliant level. Well my view to do something for our people in india has been made strong by your excellent effort which is impeccable.




  22. Keep up the good work Chhavi.
    People like you only make our countrymen proud of what we have and will achieve in future. You are like some of the few stars in otherwise dull skyline.
    You have a long way to go so maintain the same spirit and May God bless you.


  23. Chavi,

    It was very nice to see the column published in ET today, & hope every girl takes inspiration from you.

  24. Dear Sarpanch,

    I am really proud of YOU and your dedication towards your homeland. You are a great source of inspiration to all of us and the coming generations. You have defied all generic notions that one needs connections and money to introduce any improvement.

    I would love to contribute to your dreams!!!

    Neha Gupt

  25. Congratulations Chavvi. We need many more like you.

  26. @ Sarpanch….
    As per you stated that U n every Indian want to see India / our Nation at Its fullest peak of development …..!! Wut u think about other villages near by ur village…….!!! Right now the point is , how come ur village came to worst condition and Even NGO’s are doing the same work in every villages across INDIA ….. Why they are not able to convert Their projects to a success …What u wud like to Comment on Those NGOs and Please address Corrupted NGOs……….!!!!! …….. Why Rajasthan N why Not Whole INDIA …………!!! Please Address me …. !!

  27. Hello chhavi,

    It is great job you are doing. we like the e-schooling concept not only for villages but, urban poor too who migrate from villages and end up much worst conditions neither go back to their villages nor survives in towns or cities…

    Good Going..

    My suggestion is along with e-schooling imbibe good moral and family values from child stage itself and more than any thing self discipline make person perfect.. Today you are in this stage with hard at mind to see change means it has come with self discipline which you have adopted from your family and schools which you studied are so…

    And see all your village roads are min 33ft. roads that gives lot of change in the people attitude if they see good surrounding ..

    Setup small 5 seater BPO setup and Artifacts community center.. we can help you to provide some work to your NON-Profit BPO center…

    Welcome step.. you can raise funds thru

  28. Hi…
    its a rare scenario which we are experiencing here. very few people would do the thing which you have dared to do chavvi.

    it needs a courage to leave all the things which you have got after an education n struggle of 20 years of studies. n on top of that leaving the comfortable life which you might be enjoying.
    think its your self belief and inner voice which is keeping you on and on.
    please keep doing whatever you are doing.
    may god be with us all and make journey better and simpler.

  29. gaurav singh ghurayy

    well , I have always heard from people about backwardness of India’s villages but none of them has ever tried to enter the political milieu and tried to bring in change . every one criticize the politicians but none of us want to enter the dirty water . Under such scenario people like chhavi is definitely a ray of hope for our future .

  30. Chhavi
    Read your story on economic times today I’m very impressed the way you are bringing change to soda village. It takes a lot of courage to do such things. I want to say thanks to you from depth of my heart. Please let me know if I can contribute in any way, I’ll be more then happy to help you if it is in my possible limits.
    Once again congrats and best of luck

  31. Keep up the good work Sarpanch sahiba. We need more people like you in India where 80% of country’s population resides in villages. Our good wishes will always be with you. God bless.


  32. Dear Chhavi,

    I read about your work done previously and your participation in UN conference on poverty. I am impressed by the works done at grass root level. I had done MBA from MDI Gurgaon and work at IBM, Gurgaon in IT sector. I am interested in getting first hand knowledge of working of Panchayat.

    Once again I appreciate work done at SODA.


  33. Truly Inspiring.

    Chhavi, I wish you all the very best and success in your endeavours.

    Best wishes


  34. Dear Ms. Rajawat

    At the onset, excellent work done by you. A fantastic initiative undertaken to get Soda online.

    Being associated with the IT field (through my wife, who is a website designer), I can truly understand the herculene task of implementing systems which you have managed.. that too at a Village level.

    All the best Madam for your current and future endevours.

    With best regards

    Pariksheet Oza

  35. Congratulations Chhavi. Keep up the good work. I hope people of Soda will benefit a lot from your services. We need more self less people like you.
    All the best for your endeavors.

  36. Well done Chavi!

    Keep on running!

    Once you establish all that you want to do initially at Soda [which is progressing admirably], try to get the Administration to replicate your model elsewhere. It’s obviously starting to work well at Soda – the first baby steps, but am certain that things are going to roll out fine.

    Wishing you and everyone in Soda all success!


  37. Chhavi,
    Read your story in newspaper.I am really moved by your work and dedication. We need more Chhavis to change the condition of our India. Good Luck and best wishes. Hope we see more young girls in serving the poor villages of India.

  38. CA. Rahul Singhal

    Congratulations for breaking the ice…

    Many youngsters have been inspired from you…

    Developed India is not far away once the gap between “Bharat” and “India” is bridged by the educated young generation.

    Keep marching Keep inspiring

    Good Luck

    Rahul Singhal

  39. Thank you, Chhavi.
    You are an Inspiration.

    Keep updating the website with your work…
    And let others know what they can do to make things better.

    Best Regards,


  41. To go back to the place that you have come from and then improve the living standards of that place is the one of the greatest contributions that one can give to the society. Hoping that many more will take a step (including me) to do something on similar lines.


  42. shyamalendu Majee

    this kind of initiative is really necessary for the states like Rajasthan…i had over my two years mba at Jaipur….i looked the situations of Rajasthan somehow….the people of the state is very conservative…they dont have the broader mentality…except some cities like Jaipur, Udaipur etc…education city kota is not so developed as expected…so in this situation this kind of initiative is really necessary…this will really help to make broad mentality of people..

    thanks miss sarpanch…

  43. Wishing you all the best. May god give you more strength and courage to help the people..

  44. Truly inspirational & Highly motivational…
    Citizen Leadership is the future of our beautiful future and you are pioneer leader of it..
    I would love to meet you & visit your village …

    Let me recall 1 quote created by girl – LIMA from Afghanistan in SAARC leaders meet

    We are with you & I am sure you are with people like you in India !! … :)

    Cheers from bottom of the heart & best wishes…

  45. Hi Chavvi,

    kudos to you for being ‘the ONE’ who people look upto…for bringing radical positive changes to the society…for igniting thousand hopes…

    It’s indeed hard & you’ve been blessed to take this journey forward….

    God bless you with more strength…more dedication…more commitment

    Thanks….Pramod Arora

    Today I saw news about in Economic Times. I am really impressed about you & how you are taking your village ahead. Would like to congrats you for initiative & best of Luck for your future.

    You did really a great job.

    God Bless You

  48. Hi Ms. chavi,

    The article in Economic times is an inspiring one. I am really thrilled to see you go in a direction that majority will not be able to make decision but there are a good number who want to make difference or get part of the moment and I would encourage you to kick-start an initiative that can enable participation. I am confident this would be huge success. its a great opportunity to build a blue print of how a village be transformed and use it across making a big difference.

    I am equally excited to help you in my capacity and do let us know next time you want to do something and need ideas or help. All the very best as you lead this village to greater heights.


  49. Hi Chawi,
    Congratulations. Good job done.
    I work with a MNC in Mumbai on SAP field.
    Me and wife will be keen to come to your village to assist you in whatever capacity.
    All the best

  50. I salute you Ms .Chavvi Rajawat.You are a true indian,which not only made our country proud,but also took the story of success of soda to abroad,by which people came to know,that the legacy of sacrificing and feeling of patriotism is carrying by an indian,in a way,which nobody thought ever.My best wishes are always with you,i will always pray for your success,god bless you.

  51. Salute!!
    Feel great about the fact that we have people from young generation who are ready to stay intouch with roots !!

  52. Hello Miss Chavvi.
    i am also an MBA and i really salute you for your solidarity & courage.
    After MBA most of us looks for packages only i.e. for self only but rare are the ones like you who could contribute to the society.
    I have also done MBA from Sri Balaji Society, BIMM, Pune and its very jovial to learn that you belongs to our college.

    God bless you and your village.

  53. Hello Ms. Chavv,
    Your are the star Not ANNA HAZARE who is making fake popularity.
    You must be a roll model of our youths where
    all are tied up with reality shows.
    Keep updates the website.

    God Bless you.
    Best Regards,

  54. Hi Chavvi, It is just great.
    It is really touching to read ““I am just a village girl who has had an opportunity to study in some of the best institutions in the country and has only gone back home to work with and for her people. It’s as simple as that.”.
    I hope you keep this momentum…and go level ahead to District ,state..and India.


  55. Ms Chaavi,
    You just inspired me!

    With best wishes

  56. Dear Ms. Chhavi,
    Heartiest Congratulation on the achievments. The most commendable in todays time is that someone like you sacrifice the career and go back to your route.
    Indeed I see their also motivation. This works fine when someone is financially capable to manage his/her own living.
    I tried something for my village’s school (Deogoan, Ajmer Dist) to wake them up, I was and I am ready to organise the fund but since last 3 years no progress.

    I will try it again quoting your story.
    Do let us know if we can be helpful to you.
    God bless you and give enough courage to improve the life of others.
    Very inspiring

    HI, Chhavi

    It was truly inspiring to read your story in today newspaper.

    Heartiest congratulations to you.

    Technology is the current need for the Indian villages

  60. Dear Ms. Rajawat,

    Congratulations and Best Wishes for the tasks that you are doing. Though miles away from US, you are surely a lighting example to women all over the world and especially in India where people and development takes a back seat for the higher-ups.
    As long as you are in this position, please make sure that your legacy is carried forward in times to come.

    God Bless.

  61. Excellent work…I wishes you all the best for your future.

  62. Keep up the good work. You may also look into tying up with Art of living for programes in organic farming, soil conservation and also for the health of the village folks……

  63. Dear Sarpanch,

    Hats off to you and your villagers, you are really showing a way to indian youths.
    I wish to visit your village.

  64. Hi,

    Hats off to you!!!

    It is people like you who are the examples to follow.

  65. Prithviraj Bhoite

    Technology and strict policies are the only way forward. And I guess you have press the right chord to bridge the gap between rural and urban divide. Opportunities come from infrastructure – schools, roads, water, housing etc. We the people of India are not asking for opportunities, but the basic needs and rightful needs that as a human each one should get. Anyways one courageous person has to sow the seed to grow the plant.. and I guess you are doing exactly that.

    Of course would rightly like to contribute. Infact we need a framework a model which could be designed and implemented in every village of India, which gives the people their rightful basic needs… just thinking how do we do it.

  66. Dear Ms. Rajawat,

    I am really flatten by your work; You set as example for us. I have good experience in water supply, water managment and water resources field.

    If you want to do any projects related to these fields, i will help you for sure.

    Hats off you..keep up the good work.

  70. hi,

    i read about chavvy rajawat a few times in news and am feeling good. best wishes to the sarpanch and its a unique idea that all government post holders (IPS,IAS,collectors,sarpanch) shud be accessible by email id like present for chavvy rajawat ( and there shud be KPI (key performing indicators) for them to reply the email within 48 hours and the reply or the communication could be held as valid document.

    respected sarpanch, you are doing a great job and hope other sarpanch follow in your foot step. especially coming from a state also known for female foeticide and child marriage and kudos to your great parents whom i guess must have inspired and supported you.

    am overwhelmed by the news.

  71. Dear chavvy

    I read about you in a newspaper.The news made me currious to look further,partly in disbelief and partly in hope of feelgood factor.
    I think I did the right thing having reached your website.
    I live away from India but my sentiments are primed to chime with a story like yours.I read JK and influenced by his concept of action and not get bogged down in ideas.
    I suppose you have achieved it.
    I have son and daughter who have been to LSE to study economics.They are well meaning and long to hear alternative stories to bollywood.I believe you have provided one.
    Many thanks and wish we can be in touch in some way.
    Good luck you (you need plenty). Manoj

  72. madam chavvi, honorable job, realy amazing for a qualified rich INDIAN girl working for the basic rights of villagers for whose deeds INDIA is to-day,
    “service to mankind is service to GOD”
    hope you will be a role model for others to get motivated
    keep working for poor villagers/farmers ( producing food for every INDIAN & still remain starved )


  73. Dear Chhavi,

    I saw your news article in Techgig. It is very impressive.

    India needs people like you, who can think of Social Work at so young age.

    I wish you ALL THE BEST.

  74. Dear Chavvi, So nice to read about you and your village and the plans that you have in making some of the basic needs come true for your village. I wish you the best for all your work and projects.

    Please keep your website updated and let us know how we can support your work and village.

    Best wishes, Naresh

  75. We have a comprehensive egovernance product portfolio & we can do a much more detailed & cost effective work than international products as money or profit is not the criteria here, its a matter of pride to serve our country with good egovernance products & help the poorest, give us a chance to meet / prove our mettle Chhavi!

    Thanks in Anticipation.


  76. Dear Ms Chhavi,

    Today I read an article about you on and watched your interview on youtube. I must say that our Indian villages needs people like you for the overall development. In a village like Rajasthan where the girl child has been consider lower than boys, I will request you to raise the education level in your area specially for girls. We are really proud of you and will pray to GOD that you succeed in all of your plans.


  77. Dear Ms Chavvi Rajawat,

    I have read an article about you and your efforts put in developing soda in Economic Times today (

    I was very impressed with the way you tackled the issues and at your will power to uplift poverty.

    Certainly IT is the only ray of hope to eradicate most common and basic issues faced by society like poverty & illitracy.

    We need to make everyone involved and should take collective decisions and keep everyone informed about what is being done and how that would benefit them.

    I hope and strongly believe that, God will give you more strength and courage to address more and more issues.

  78. Dear Chhavi,

    Thanks for all your efforts and appreciate your work at SODA. Specially implementation of SAP.
    That’s going to be a good example for Govt to centralize everything.
    I am an Engineer and work at HCL, Mumbai. I am looking forward to be a part of some initiative than can give education to under privileged children.


  79. Dear Chhavi,
    Heartiest congratulations on your worthy initiatives.
    We at DoctorsForYou would be keen to explore possibility of running a health centre on a long term basis in Soda.
    We are currently running one in urban slums of Mumbai and another one (maternal and child health) in Biratpur, Bihar which has been successfully handed over to local population.
    I look forward to collaboration and engagement between two teams.
    Yours truly,

  80. Dear Ms. Rawat,
    I am greatly impressed with your efforts and your out of the box thinking to bring about the radical change in your village and its inmates. Simply a great job.
    My best wishes for you and your village. May this goodness radiate and reaches others too so that not only SODA but the entire rural scenario of the country shines in the light of development, good governance and in well being of its countrymen.
    I also liked some of the photos posted on your village site. They are truly beautiful.
    Keep it up.

  105. Dear Ms. Rajawat,
    Congratulations for doing a great job to the Indian village of Soda!

  106. Good Job Chaaviji,
    We do have same kind of village Raj-Samdhiyada in Rajkot dist. of Gujarat also, though it is not IT enabled but Its one of the best village to live in India.

    30 years back one man named Baldevbhai elected as the Surpanch of that village and entirely changed the face of village.

    Few highlights are as follows
    1) Not a single FIR registered in last 30 years
    2) Per head income is equal to Rs 30000
    3) People do not celebrate those festival that would cause any kind of pollution
    4) They have there own committee of senior villagers to deal with quarrel and disputes between villagers.
    4) People do not lock there home or shops ever.
    5) Polythenes are banned.
    6) Village has so many check dams and more than 60000 trees
    7) All street connected with RCC roads
    8) no garbage, no cow dungs, neat and clean village

    This is just a tip of the iceberg.

    I hope some day migration will start from metros to villages

  107. Dear Chhavi,
    Impressed by the job being executed by u in our Area. Ours is an xtremely poor village. My heart aches, but can’t help as none of our villagers is wealthy, even the Sarpanch is an absolute illetrate guy, he belongs to a Scheduled Tribe & never even seen an elememtary educatonal institution not to talk of the higher study, got only elected thanks to the Seat Reservation, reasulting to NO HELP TO OUR ENTIRE GRAM PANCHAYAT, even the earlier ones were no different to him.
    Few guys like me are busy making thier both ends meet, as they neither have got a wealthy family nor a Kailrugji (writing in positive spirit only) & therefor unable to venture out like you. Kindly advise.

    I’m currently working in an MNC as a Branch Manager at Jaipur.
    My Village : Near Malpura.

  108. Dear Chhavi…..hats of to you….done really a gr8 job…I really appreaciate your efforts. You are inspiration for young generation……congratulation …india need leaders like you….congrats once again & best of luck for future….

  115. Dear Chhavi,

    First, of all my highest regards to your parents for giving you such ethics,education.

    Secondly, obviously to you for leaving aside luxurious life you may have received after studying abroad. But for the cause of people you left everything behind and worked for people.

    Such determination and honesty is required in whole country. Soda is a small entity, please think if you can do something of the sort of Anna Hazare such that your vision can help country as a whole.

    Tons of wishes from me for your this endeavor.

    Best regards,
    Sorabh Bhardwaj

  116. Well Done….Ms. Chaavi..

  121. Hi, Chhavi
    I am very glad and impressive to see you a founder of development in your own village as a girl. congret’s
    Your work is motivating to all whom who belong to small villages, but after higher education they left own basic land for to earn money.
    My sister want to make CS and want to change a system in india, I suggest her to improve first her own land. God Bless you and Carry on development process of village, one day you sure get success from my heart.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Manish Agrawal

  122. NAMASTEY,
    you have done a great job,
    As i had read an article “YOUNGEST SARPANCH of India” in the OUTLOOK magazine, soon i became a fan of you. now you are a roll-model for me.
    i am also from a small village so understand, what kind of life peoples have in a village. you are like a “RAY of light” for all the peoples living in villages, they expect that their SARPANCHs also do work like you & transform their village too.
    i think you are a mentor today and all the politicians have to learn from you that for what kind of work peoples elect them as their leaders.

    thank you so much & my wishes are always with you.

  123. Hai Chavvi,
    Really nice initiative and also a learning experience for the youth, who can derive motivation from your hard work and dedication to your roots. Really inspiring. I would wish you more success and may God help you in achieving more and more success and taking your village to a next level of empowerment, innovation of new ideas and enlightening the future of the coming generations.

    In this manly world taking up such a work and leading up is really a inspiration for all the females. All the females can learn this from you.

    Wish you all success in life.

  124. Atif Ahmed Siddiqui

    Ms. Chhavi Rajawat
    Have a good day

    I am highly impressed.
    I have no word to say—- The work you are doing is really great.
    Everyone should learn from you, Nobody cares about villager,they need our support they don’t have resources, an idea etc. Its our resposibility , We only blame to politicians they are not doing anything fact is that we don’t want to do anything accept that expecting others. I know they are responsible but we should initiate. We should tight our belt and thing positive.
    I did MBA presently working in Saudi Arabia whenever I watch news on TV only about Rape cases, Bribe Cases, This ghotala that ghotala really I was tired but your news gave me lots of relax thank you so much.
    Wish you all success ahead.
    Insha-Allah You will be defiantly successful in your mission
    I will pray- keep it up.
    Take Care

  125. Heartiest Congratulations….!!!!!

    You are doing great work Ms Chaavi…..!!! I would like to salute you for the same…!!!

    Best of luck for your future assignments…..!!!!



  127. Hi Chhavi,

    Today I read on yahoo with heading “Youngest Female Sarpanch Makes Her Village IT-Enabled”.
    You are doing most apprecialbe work for your own mother land. Every Indian should be proud of you.
    Keep it up!!

  128. Dear Chhavi Madam,

    U are doing best efforts for the mankind and to serve the nation by setting up an example to others. My best wishes are for you. There are other schemes for the Villagers at their doorstep implementing by the Govt. Departments like CAPART, KVIC.

    with good wishes,

    Dahiya k.s.

  129. Hi Chavvi

    Congrats!! Great work!! Many more should follow either in deed or by monetary contribution and change the face of India which I believe is quiet possible. Anna Hazare has also transformed his village Ralegan Siddhi which was in dire state and now there is a sea change in the village which has now became self-sufficient. If Gov can get all the black money stashed abroad and in our own country and use it for development purpose, I am sure that day will not be far when we will one of the most developed country.


  130. Good luck and God Bless you, Chaviji

  131. Hi Chavvi,

    Most of us ( Youth of India ) are good for nothing but cribbing about the sad state of the nation while enjoying life in Metros. But you are a perfect example of what youth should be like. I would request you to please maintain a regular blog (if you are not already) so that people can learn from your your regular experiences at the same time can do meaningful dialogue with you.

    Best wishes to you and a grand salute.

    The need of hour for our country is young leaders like you. You have set an example for others. Today I sent your story to at least 200 friends of mine thru mail.

    Please, for God’s sake, do not get converted into prototype mould of today’s politicians. We are fed up of them. You could be a sarpanch of a small village in a backward district in Rajsthan today. But, You will be a pioneer to inspire the youth to come forward to lead the people, to represent the people. So maintain transparency and honesty and keep away corrupt people from your vicinity. God bless you, beta. The old generation has failed to fulfill its duties. You are hope of tomorrow’s India.

    All the best to you to maintain your originality.

  159. Hi Chhavi,

    INDIA and its villages are changing NOW with the leader like you. I salute your commitment and zest to work for village and villagers. I believe that INDIA’s development in real sense starts from the bottom. A long way to go but every such initiative can make the difference.

    You are not a social worker celebrity whom we get to see on most of news channel, you are working at the root level.

    You are an inspiration for many such villagers who have been fortunate enough to receive higher education. I want to congratulate you for being such an inspiration and wish you all the best for all your future endeavors. I am from KOJRA, Dist. – Sirohi, RAJASTHAN.

    Do let me know if I could be a drop of support in your efforts!

  160. Ms. Chavi,

    You have proved that will power is more important than anything else. I congratulate you for the exmaple you have set by work.
    Now, time has came when every one has to start the initiate at his own level. We should not look towards our great (corrupt) leaders (irrespective of parties) . The great thing, in my view, you have done is the feeling of self reliance which you inculcated in the villagers.
    My best wishes.
    Ratan Lal Jat

  161. India needs person like you who inspire us by your services to your root,wish we had many more selfless people like should be an eye opener to those who think the development of a country means forcefully acquiring farm land for making it a concrete jungle and in this process creating more and more land less farmers,the community which feed whole nation but is got no voice of its own in so called micromanaged development by those who just swapped power from foreigners who ruled us for many centuries.i feel proud of people like you who work among less privileged without any self interest….may lord of universe be by your side always.

  162. Thums up to you Chhavi…
    Great work done.
    Would like to be part of your team.

  166. Dear madam,

    Great to hear about your dedicated contribution towards the betterment of your own village. If every citizen comes to know about his responsibility for the Nation, then very soon country will be free poverty, underdevelopment and other mallices that are prevalent today.

    I would like to add here that I also cherished the same dream as you had and want to do something for the betterment of the society.Kindly guide me in the way in which it can be done. I will be thankful to you if you enlighten me in this regard and share your valuable views.

  169. Dear Sarpanch Chhavi Rajjawat ji,
    I was very much surprised after looking an article on the net. Thus hatts off to the initation taken by you for your villagers. I was just wondering that a single girl can change the face of complete village so its a inspirational lesson for all our youngster girls & boys & i request to donate to this village by some or other means so that first time in india a history can be created of a role model developed by a Young Literate Sarpanch of Soda village.
    Hatts off to the initation, courage & batteling for the welfare of ur villagers.

  170. Hello,

    Congratualtions on your work in the Village.

    I have read your work today for the first time that also only small part. I am a Software developer, I would like to offer my service if required, which I have under my reach.



  171. Sarpanchji,

    I am really glad and awe-struck by the dedication and diligence that you have shown in going back to your hometown and work for needy.
    Your deeds are exemplary and I hope the educated class draws inspiration from you to go back to our roots and contribute to India rather than work for foreign companies and MNCs.

    I have a suggestion to make though. While you go about revamping the village and ‘reforming’ the society and bringing technology to the doorstep, please do not compromise on the pristine culture, the values that this country owns.

    I feel development and progress should not be at the cost of Nature. Technology should be only to assist Man and make things easier and should not become the be-all-and-end-all.

    All the Best in your endeavours!!

  172. Truly Inspiring……………….. Great Work.

  173. I am really thankful to god that he send some people to inspire and do wonderful jobs .
    And you are one of those …
    Hope that the good work is replicated in other parts of the country and the world ( Developing)

  181. Hi Chhavi

    Your work blooms like lotus in mud and what a slap on the face of today’s politicians who in contrast and despite getting funds do not develop our villages. The satisfaction you get out of this work is your great reward! Keep it up and enjoy life to the hilt by such activities. All other things are waste of time and life.



  182. Hi,

    You have really done the great job. It is really a good example for others, who had done their heigher studies and saying nothing is going to change in india.

  183. The work you have done is very inspiring! All the best!

  184. Great work Madam.You are an inspiration to all of us.Keep it up.

  187. Dear Chhavi,

    At first, I must appreciate your decision for shouldering such a responsibility to head an Indian village and abandoning a promising career. It is truly a step that needs a lot of courage, vision and a sense of sacrifice for your community. I came to know today that you could connect your village to the outer world through internet. I must congratulate you and the people of the Soda village on this occasion for braving all the odds.
    I am also an MBA and doing my PhD in international rural development at the University of Reading, UK. It is my wish to visit your village as and when I visit India next time.
    Could you please let me know the agro-climatic conditions of your village and major crops and the state of water resources? I wish to extend some help, if possible. You may write me back at
    With best wishes

  189. Hi Madam,
    I was happy to read that a highly educated lady is the sarpanch of a village that needs a lot of development. Women though are involved in social work today, an MBA working at grass root level is a rare sight to see. I realize how difficult it might be to implement all the schemes for the village utilizing funds provided by Government. You may be facing several problems in the way but your determination is what inspires many. Will be happy to see your village & many like it in our country developed. Keep updating the site. Will be glad to support the noble cause.
    Best wishes..
    Rupesh, Pune.

  190. Dear Madam,

    I just found the news about you and your role in the development of extremely backward village in Rajasthan.

    I am an electrical engineer working in the field of renewable energy development in USA but always try to understand the energy needs of India and working on developing some renewable projects which can give the energy freedom to every person in India so I always welcome you to share the ideas about that and I will be more than happy to explain in details about the ways to get the cheapest energy from Renewable Energy sources like the SUN. you will be my inspirer for rest of my life as I want to create a revolution in Indian Energy Sector with maximum use of Renewables to save environment and save billions of dollers in foreign reserve spent on the fuels and nuclear materials.

    All the best for your future endevours and hope I can do anything to help in your noble cause.

    I am really impressed with your work in your village SODA, I would like to see your village SODA, pls guide me how to reach there. I am also from a village named KHARI in Bijnor district (WEST UP) & working in a MNC in NCR. I also cherish the same dream for my village & want to do something for my villagers. I just got your article thru yahoo news & share the same on my Facebook wall so my friends also know about you.
    All the Best for your bright future.

    Best Regards,

  206. At this time when people are moving from Villages to towns for a better living..U are an incomparable example that shows there decisions are wrong. India’s heart is her villages which are being destroyed by the high society moves, rather there are possibilities in villages to do the same. Now a days we can’t feel the village life as it was before the 90s. Hope these type of actions can attract people to move back to their own homes in villages.

    Congrats and all the best for ur upcoming moves. Would like to hear from you. Regards


  207. I am impressed by your concern for ur village and the village progress.I shaall be pleased if you do something for the country.

    Great work done so far. The more impressive thing was how you were able to accomplish all this in a male dominated society. This shows the power of education. I wish more women in India get at least basic education (if not MBA), follow your footsteps and make their villages proud and corruption free.

    Keep up the good work.

    All the best !!

  212. Dear Chavvi,

    it is something which makes Bharat (Soil of Rishis) great and your efforts are core limelight of that.
    your approach is modest and awesome.

    Arise Awake and stop not till the goal is reached .

  214. Hats off to Surpanch!!!

    We always keep on blaming the system for everything but we never get involved ourselves in the system to make it proper. But you have shown that if some has real interest in social welfare then they can find their own ways to do that.
    Great job! truly inspirational.

    Really you are great.Its a very much difficult specialy for a girl in India to come forward.
    There are people like you, Kiran Bedi who make us proud.May God bless you.

  216. Dear Mam,

    glad to know about your works & You too, i am from a viilage also Village Name : Kapisahi, PO : Kalanga, Via: Bhapur, Gram Panchayat Office : Navakishorepur,Block : Hindol, Dist -Dhenkanal,Orissa. presently i am working in a MNC in India, but i love my village a lot, we have lot problems in our village , like electrcity ( hardly we can manage to get power for 7-8hrs a day in avg, and the voltage in Day time is around 130volts in night its came down to 20volts which is nothing), water & Sanitation is disaster,poverty,health problems like malaria is most affected, road & Communication is also disaster and Etc….,so i am very keen to have some idea or guidance from you regarding to get the infrastructure ready for any improvements,because we have to start from the root,my father is retd. central govt employee, he have taken few steps but he doesnt get any support from the sarpanch and loacal MLA and from Blocks also, now in coming years i want to be involved 100% for improvement of my village, we need some inspiration from you peoples only, Mera Gaaun he mera jeevan hai…,

  217. Great Work !

    It shows that everything is possible if we decide, mainly a powerful elected person. Congratulations for Your such Great Job. It’s really inspiring for all the village all over India.
    Thanks and “All the Best” for all your work.

  218. Read article today about you in ET . Its looks unbelievable in today’s world. Hats off to you Ms Chhavi. There are plenty of young minds in this country with a deep desire to do something for their native places but get lost in this vicious circle of corporate jobs and salaries. I am sure you are a true inspiration for all those who aspire to do something for their roots but forget after getting into the peer pressure syndrome to earn money and flaunt it . It gives me a feeling of extreme happiness to know that you made the right use of your education. Wish you success in your aims.
    God Bless You!!

Would love to see the work first hand and to meet the person behind all this.

  254. Hi Chhavi,

    Hope you remember me from your friends list from CIStems, Jaipur. Read your story few months back and came to know about you from one of our CIStemite friend Pratibha, about you being a Sarpanch.
    Congratulations on the tremendous work you are doing for your village people. Extremely proud of you.
    Indeed you are inspiring and I hope that every youth takes on this journey right now, as I strongly believe, that today’s youth is in the position of changing the face of India. What we need to do is something which you are doing…going back to roots and educating them, helping them, making them realize…that these urban, uneducated people are actually the power house of India.
    I would love to join you on this trip. Let me know if I can be of any help. Thanks for giving me a proud and inspiring moment. Cheers!!!

  255.

Presently I am in UAE and coming back to India very soon.

Great to send you an email but I dont know you will read this or no but this will be ever in my memories that I have send an msg to you because you are doing too much good for oue great India. So always be happy and God bless you a lot. And chavvi Ji i promise I will also help you to develop that village by financialy, mentally and healtly also becayse i will surely come there very soon. because now I am very eager to meet you. Great madam! live long and AMEEN!

  259. Hi Chavvi,

    No words to express my feelings to you, for your different way of thinking and your firm commitment to the society, and moreover your magnanimous mind. This is not something anyone can do, with your educational background and a lucrative career in corporate sector. Only a few, dedicated people will be able to do such things. And you are one among those few…..

    Many regards to you


  260. Reading an article on you on Rajasthan Patrika today, I am extremely impressed by your courage and vision. I hope that you efforts will change the picture of your village into a place which will become a shining example for rural areas in India which need leaders like you. You have put a message before all politicians .Read about you through Soda-India site,I am very impressed to your mission. My all best wishes are with you.

  261. dear ms rajawat,

  265. dear chavi

    it was enthusiastic and inspiring news for me

    as a public servant i met many of sarpanchs but always had bad experience regarding RTI , development project for villages , and many more serious issues related to development of villages ,

    if every youth starts thinking like you and work for developing his /her own land not others ( IT Professionals, doctors, engineers who work for other country for only making money ) then we can easily reach our mission 2020 in early stage

    you have really set an example for youth that charity begins at home and i m very proud of you kind people , ..

    through this stage i would like to recall all my friends who r serving for USA Europe and other states , please come to your motherland we still have to do lot many work to provide a better environment, and the best country for coming generation

  266. To the People of SODA,
    First of all, i would like to congratulate for the great self-sustaining initiatives recorded under the courageous leadership of ypur Surpanch.
    My purpose of writing here is to inform you regarding great ideas happening around the world which could help transform the lifes of the fellow indian villages. By using this platform i would urge to make another section (kind of a blog) where people can share, discuss and find solutions for the various problems thereby faced.

    Apart from above, I humbly request you to go to the below url providing the innovative and cost effective idea “Solar Bottle Bulb” in Philiphines to provide daylight. It is a very eco-friendly and cost-efficient way to provide daylight without much hassle of buying high priced raw material or technicalities. This could also be done in different deisgns and more colorful and is a good sell like hot pancakes, bringing capital for the development of village.

    Kindly visit the above URLs and revert back by your preeminent views and thoughts.



  267. There is nothing else left me to say except “Well Done :) ”.
    Wondering how I can contribute to my village uplift.

  268. Dear Ms. Chhavi Rajawat,

    It is really a very enthusiastic news to read about
    changing face of rural India particualrly as result
    of efforts devoted by highly educated woman’s initiative.

    We would love to share some of our experiences and join you
    in your fly high Aims.
    Please have a look on following blog too.
    I would love to talk to you as per your convience.

    (1)Make Birth and Death certificate and other requires certificate at the door steps. Why villager to become applicant? They have right and panchayat has duty and secretary is paid for this job. On the birth and Death panchayat secretary goes at their respective house and do the paper work on the spot and arrange to reach certificate at doorstep, the very day.
    (2)Agriculture deptt. is to do soil testing at farm. Mobile soil testing are consuming lot of money of tax payer.
    (3) Take steps to arrange to make vote of person the day he or she attains age 18 years. It is each day process, don’t wait election to come.
    I wish you all the success. God Bless

    you have been doing a comendable job.kudos to your effort.

  284. Ms Chhavi Rajawat,

    Congratulation for your achievement and best of luck for your future.



  285. @Sarpanch: you are indeed an inspiration to many techies and the young generation who with their potential can bring a lot of change to the society. Your bold step to go back to the roots and work for them without worrying abt the loss of money and the lavish life is indeed inspiring and one which each one of us must understand. We all owe a lot to the society and must led a part of our lives to give it back something much better. thank u so much …I will also take such a step one day for my own home town…

  286. How could you break the dress code of the rural areas just because you had higher education… if it were in many other places people would harass such a woman with insulting words if she wears city dress after returning from higher education… this is what amazes me.. and to defeat the men polititians who has already rooted there.. the villagers there are really nice i think

  287. Hmm. .. I am not honest if I say…well planned…but NO..this is not the way to go about.

    Send me a MOU which U would prefer, so that I can see what can be done about your Village.

    And I mean MOU …detailed…which concepyulaizes the way you see the Village grow as well as a person who is willing to Invest.



  288. and kindly reverse the pattern of showing emails. Last one in first message for u. This is designed other way around..???

    Dear Ms. Rajwat,
    I recently come across with information on you indicating the social work you are doing with rural india as a Sarpanch.
    I congratulate you.
    In my opinion present work of Sarpanch is directionlless and therefore tending towards self interest to a larger extent.
    Based on your present work as sarpanch do you think any road map for the post of sarpanch is possible ?
    Please drop a line in receipt of this note.
