Chhavi Rajawat is an Indian Politician & Sarpanch in rural Rajasthan. Chhavi, an MBA girl, had raised her voice last year for literally riding her way through the Panchayat election and becoming the Sarpanch of Soda village, 60 Km from Jaipur.
Ministers and ambassadors from various countries were stunned and were in sense of disbelief when the chairperson of the 11th Info-poverty World Conference, held at UN, was introduced, Chhavi Rajawat, as head of a village of India.
Chhavi Rajawat was born in Rajasthan. She is an alumna of Rishi Valley School, Bangalore, Lady Shri Ram College for Women (University of Delhi) and a management graduate from Indian Institute of Modern Management, Pune now known as Balaji Institute of Modern Management Pune.
Chhavi left her corporate job and city life to join politics. She worked with five comapanies in various capacities before changing focus.
But 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.
