Daughter of 8-time MP Sells Mangoes By The Roadside

The Logical Indian

June 19th, 2015 / 9:49 PM

The woman selling mangoes in this photo is Chandrawati Saru, daughter of eight times MP, and former Deputy Speaker of the 15th Lok Sabha, Kariya Munda. She is a teacher by profession and also a social worker. When her garden grows excess mangoes she sits roadside and sell them.

She learned humbleness and value of labor from her father. Her father lives with the same simplicity the way he did four decades ago before becoming the MLA or deputy speaker. He is from the tribal area of Jharkhand and the only representative of the tribals in the Parliament. When he goes to the village, he does farming by himself. He still enjoys dipping in the local ponds to take the bath.

He roams around the Khanti district, which is infamous for Naxalite attacks, fearlessly with minimum security.

Kariya Munda is the true role model for the politician of our country and Chandrawati, an idol of simplicity.
