Chhavi Rajawat : A Dream On Story


Dreamers will be Dreamers. They don't care what the world believes as right or wrong. They go with what they feel is life-elevating for the world around them.
So did Chhavi Rajawat from Rajasthan. 30-year-old Rajawat, India's youngest and the only MBA to become a village head - a position mostly occupied by elders, quit her senior management position with Airtel Group to serve her beloved villagers as a sarpanch.
Read on...



Life is worth living, when it is all about giving. 

Happiness is never in how much you collect, but how much you use to elevate the world around you. That is what we (at Elevate Your Life and also Chhavi Rajawat) believe very strongly in.

She is passionate about her village, and about her country.

One could easily mistake Rajawat, an articulate, computer-savvy woman, for a front-line model or at least a Bollywood actress. But she is sarpanch of Soda village, 60 kilometers from Jaipur, in backward Rajasthan and the changing face of growing dynamic rural India.

Addressing a conference at the World Economic Forum, she said, 


"If India continues to make progress at the same pace as it has for the past 65 years since independence, it just won't be good enough. We'll be failing people who dream about having water, electricity, toilets, schools and jobs. I am convinced we can do it differently and do it faster.
In the past year alone, I and the villagers in Soda have brought about a radical change in the village purely through our own efforts. We have had no outside support - no NGO help, no public, nor private sector help."

Like any other Dreamer, she is passionately focused on her goal - whether someone can visualize what she can, or not. 
"In three years I will transform my village. I don't want money. I want people and organizations to adopt projects in my village as often projects fail owing to lack of a local connect and that is what I am here to provide by bridging that gap.
I want to bring about faster change so that this generation can enjoy that kind of life that we often take for granted." 

For most, it would be a step back. But for Chhavi Rajawat, leaving behind corporate glamour and city life to head back to her village Soda, 60km from Jaipur, as its sarpanch has been a journey to her roots. She says she's paying her debt to the village she grew up in. A student of Rishi Valley Bangalore and Lady Shriram College, Rajawat topped up her education with a business management degree. She worked with five companies in various capacities before aligning her focus.
We all have a rent to pay - whether we acknowledge that or not. We ought to pay the rent for occupying space and using resources of this planet for 80 long years. Can we escape it? No way. 


Today, as Chhavi heads NREGA meetings in her village dressed in jeans and T-shirt, she is fast emerging as the changing face of rural Rajasthan. "It should change. There is so much one can do," she says.

"Villagers have got used to not working and taking partial payment for NREGA. I have to change that. I go on surprise visits and give them a scolding or two if they are not working," she says. 
"But my focus is on bringing safe drinking water and increasing job opportunities in the village by involving NGOs"

Chhavi- a dreamer - realised at some stage of her life that life is not only about earning money and running the corporate rat race, that there is no point just chasing the herd. Life has much more to it, which makes it worthwhile. 
She dared to DREAM ON.
Her dreams have not only brought in a better life to her villagers, but given her happiness unlimited.
So go on, Dream Big ! Do not let your reasons become a hurdle in achieving your dreams. Every setback is a little nudge from HIM for us to Dream On !
