RK Srivastava remembered the memory of her on the birth anniversary of India's first female teacher and great social reformer 'Krantijyoti' Savitri Bai Phule. RK Srivastava, who taught hundreds of poor family students to engineer for just one rupee, said that there has not been such a woman in the history of the world. Their invaluable contribution towards the upliftment of women's education and rights will always be an inspiration for all of us.

Historical work done by Savitribai and her husband Jyotiba

Savitribai and her husband Jyotiba put together a solid foundation of the feminist thinking that is constantly evolving and articulating in the world. Both recognized, opposed and offered solutions to the evil practices of the society. She used to take two saris. Some people threw cow dung on them on the way. Brahmins who threw cow dung believed that Shudra-Atishudras do not have the right to read. The saris that she wore from home were filled with foul smell. After reaching school, she wore other saris. Then she started teaching girls.

Savitribai Phule

This incident is dated around 1 January 1848. On this day, Savitri Bai Phule opened a school for girls in Bhidewadi, Pune. Today is her birthday.

On this day, all women and men of India should apply the same vaccine in their honor because this woman has freed not only women but also men from their inertia and stupidity.

In 1848, Savitri Bai alone stood as a wall for crores of women. The foundation of this wall of Kerala was laid by Savitri Bai alone. Meeting her husband Jyetiba Phule and Sagunabai. Go through his biography and you will be filled with pride. Savitri Bai's picture should be in every school, whether government or private. There has not been such a woman in the history of the world.

People who threw cow dung at them, read their husband Jyoti Ba, threatened the father so much that the father removed the son from the house. That Savitri Bai saved the life of a Brahmin when a woman became pregnant with him. The people of the village were killing both. Savitri reaches Bai and rescues them both.

Women in India will no longer look like they have looked-

Savitri Bai did not open the first school, did not become the first teacher. But women in India will no longer look like they have come, its first living wake became the original charter.

They gave birth to dead and killed women of India. The men thief society used to leave Pune's widows pregnant and commit suicide. The example of what Savitri Bai has done for such pregnant widows is hardly in the world.

In 1892, she formed the first women's organization in the country for the economic development of widowed women of Pune as Mahila Seva Mandal. In this organization, every 15 days, Savitribai herself would discuss with all the poor Dalit and widow women, listen to their problems and also suggest a solution to overcome it.

Savitribai took over the responsibility

The Phule couple set up a child homicide ban in the house of their neighbor friend and movement partner Usman Sheikh on 28 January 1853. Whose responsibility was handled by Savitribai. All the destitute pregnant women were taken care of without including any questions and maternity raised and raised children for which a cradle house was also built there. This problem could be gauged by the fact that in just 4 years, more than 100 widowed women gave birth to children in this house.

Savitribai and her husband Jyotiba put such a solid foundation of feminist thinking that is constantly evolving and articulating in the world. Both did not go to Oxford. Rather, he identified the evil practices, opposed them and offered solutions.

I have not written anything new. He has presented what he wrote. Rather short written. It is written so that we do not miss Savitribai Phule just for postage stamps. To remember how poor and ruthless the society of that time was, in that superstitious society there was also a logical and compassionate woman named Savitri Bai Phule.
