Where there’s determination, there resides a genuine spirit of goodness too.

Sharda Dawar proves it right by becoming the proud face of MP’s little tribal village in Jobat, a district 170 kilometers away from the city of Indore.

Born visually impaired, Sharda never allowed her lack of vision to compromise her dignity or success.

Few years back, due to lack of funds, she requested the collector of Jobat to extend financial help for her graduation. Collector Shekhar Verma was able to help her and administer financial support of Rs 10,000.

As it happened, she not only graduated with flying colors, but also cracked the bank’s probationary exam(P.O).




Alirajpur happens to be one of the places with lowest literacy rate in India. Having achieved such a milestone, Sharda Dawar was determined to be thankful for that one stroke of help she received from the collector.

As a result, she reached his office and gave him back the money she had borrowed years ago. Sharda confesses the only reason she returned the amount was to thank him and encourage him to change another life with the same amount.

The collector might not have remembered her, but her act has made his heart fill with pride.

Sharda’s relatives and villagers are in celebratory mode as they plan for a ceremony dedicated to her hard work and perseverance.

Go Girl!
