Prime Minister Narendra Modi hands over his social media account to ‘seven women achievers’ on the occasion of International Women’s Day.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted this morning he would log out of his social media accounts and give them to “seven women achievers” who will “share their life’s journeys” on International Women’s Day.

“Greetings on International Women’s Day! We salute the spirit and accomplishments of our Nari Shakti. As I’d said a few days ago, I’m signing off. Through the day, seven women achievers will share their life journeys and perhaps interact with you through my social media accounts,” PM Modi tweeted.

“India has outstanding women achievers in all parts of the nation. These women have done great work in a wide range of sectors. Their struggles and aspirations motivate millions. Let us keep celebrating the achievements of such women and learning from them,” the Prime Minister tweeted.


The first to tweet from the PM’s Twitter handle was of Sneha Mohandoss, founder of Food Bank India. “You heard of food for thought. Now, it is time for action and a better future for our poor. Hello, I am @snehamohandoss Inspired by my mother, who instilled the habit of feeding the homeless, I started this initiative called Foodbank India,” Ms Mohandoss tweeted, along with a video introducing herself.


The second tweet comes from Malvika Iyer, a bomb blast survivor, a national awardee, a motivational speaker, and World Economic Forum global shaper. She tweets:

I believe that education is indispensable for change. We need to sensitize young minds about discriminatory attitudes. We need to show people with disabilities as role models instead of showing them as weak and dependent. [email protected] #SheInspiresUs

“I survived a gruesome bomb blast at the age of 13 that blew off my hands and severely damaged my legs. Yet, I worked and went on to get my PhD. Giving up is never an option. Forget your limitations and take on the world with confidence and hope.”

Acceptance is the greatest reward we can give to ourselves. We can’t control our lives but we surely can control our attitude towards life. At the end of the day, it is how we survive our challenges that matters most. Know more about me and my [email protected] MalvikaIyer #SheInspiresUs
