What can be the best source of Inspiration?Are they the quotes you use.......Can they be the movies you watch.....and what about your favourite sports or sportsman.
I shall have missed many of the well known sources. History tells you stories, a lots of them, they can be a real source of inspiration. Some efforts get unnoticed and so are their results.... But what if these results were an inspiration for life?
This is the story of Kinkri Devi (Read the Article). She was a Sweeper. She filed a law suit in Shimla high court (later reached Supreme Court) against illegal mining and also won it. Who said Justice is expensive and rarely you get that in India. Right efforts and your Will are the things that matter. She was a sweeper when she represented India in International Women's Conference in Beijing because of the keen interest taken in her by Hillary Rodham Clinton, then the first lady of United States. Long have I heard about 'Will', 'Grit', 'Courage', 'Determination' but rarely you see/hear about implementations. This is one of them
I was appalled by the fact that this story was not reported in none of the news paper in India (except one, that also late). Most of the news websites and that particular newspaper reported the story after it was published in New York times. Seems like we still haven't passed Swami Vivekanand era who was recognized only after he proved his mettle around the world.
How long shall we be denied some Indian Stories with courage of common man?
Don't know how many heroes will depart unreported and unappreciated?
