Today March 10,,,,,,,
It is the Death Anniversary Day of the Great Sacrificed Personality Mata Savitribai Phule. She died in this day in 1897 by plague, while serving plague patients.
Mata Savitribai Phule was the first female Teacher (1848) in India. She was a trailblazer in providing Education for girls and for ostracized portion of society. She opened School for Upressed and Depressed Girls with her husband, one of the ‘Guru’ of our Babasaheb, Mahatma Jyotirao Phule in 1854. Thereafter, sympathising with the plight of windows, she built a large shelter in 1864 for destitute women. She strongly fought cruel atrocities against women. Her life is heralded as a beacon of women’s rights in India. She is fondly referred/called as the ‘Mother of Indian feminism’.
Mata Savitribai Phule’s relentless efforts and endless contributions towards eradication of untouchability, gender bias, women’s rights, casteism, varnas and manudharma are remarkable for ever.
Blue Salute to the Great Lady Mata Savitribai Phule, who worked whole life for the upliftment of downtrodden girls, windows, destitute women and poors.
