Duji amma is among those 1000 women, who’ve listed their names for the 2005 Nobel Laureate award. She fought for 12 years continuously, against the mistreatment. The 27 year old widow had undergone slavery and hunger, while working as a labourer for digging and breaking rocks. She battled against low wages.
‘Kol’ was considered as the inferior class. People, who belonged to this community, were treated akin to insects. She brought back the lost reputation of her community. It’s her efforts for education, that these people are no more afraid of the upper class brats. Females learnt to take part vigorously, in other communal dealings, for changing the scenario of the village. They deliberated education as a essential step in changing the scenario. The wonderful lady has worked a lot for diverse wellbeing schemes, for old and handicap individuals, along with assisting them.
Now, a number of children attend the schools. No doubt, for accentuating the change, and for bringing up a difference, education plays an imperative role.
