Her childhood memories
In the 1970s, my childhood was spent with my grandparents in Andhra Pradesh, where Untouchability was the most powerful material of division.
I always wondered why there was discrimination, and one day I asked my father the same question, to which he replied, "People should live in cleanliness, and those who don't do so, we keep them away to protect you from several diseases that occur due to lack of cleanliness." This answer satisfied and inspired me greatly.
It is because of that inspiration that my father gave me I am now the Clean India Campaign's Brand Ambassador.
Personal Life and Relationships.
I've never had a lonely moment in my life. I used to offer the tiniest amount of assistance in the development of friendships.
People used to act nice in front of me but insult me behind my back, and despite knowing all of this, I never broke up with them, instead, I used to help people.
I've never lied to anyone unless it was necessary.
My mother taught me patience and bravery, and my father taught me skill sets, social work, and management skills.
My husband, taught me fearlessness, love, kindness, and organizational skills. Deshmukh Ji has taught me that work is worship.
He taught me that one person can learn a lot and is capable of doing many things at one time.
He used to say that any task that is taken should be done with full devotion.
No leave, No holidays one should enjoy his or her work.
we have to make others happy by doing our work.
My lovely daughters taught me that becoming a mother is the worlds best happiness, becoming a mother of girls is more proud.
My daughters call me their life Hero.
After getting married my personal life is only 5% and public life is 95%.

A Message to youth
There is a saying that youth are the backbone of the country and as being elders and their parents there is a great responsibility on our shoulders to make them realize the importance of their duty towards society.
As a youth of this generation is already aware of all the problems and issues which are taking our country into Worst conditions so I just want to tell them to be responsible enough to remove corruption(in all aspects).
I want them to realize their harm made environmentally, culturally, health, safety, education, and many more.
So they should can, sit together, plan together, work together, progress together, enjoy together and pass the good baton to the younger generation.
I'd like to collaborate with new groups and youths to enhance the villages. India, though we all know, is a country of villages.
I don't want to turn villages into cities; instead, I want to nurture the ideal village concept as expressed by Bharat Ratna Nanaji Deshmukh Ji, Mahatma Gandhi, and our former President, Honorable Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.
We will not have to suffer from pollution, migration, malnutrition, disparity, poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, ill health, and the female-male ratio if we focus on improving villages.
I want to preserve our knowledge, culture, society's bounding art, and values, which can be achieved if we all group together and work for a better India, which for me includes healthy villages and powerful cities with good governance.
Favorite vacation and movie?
My favorite vacation place is Chitrakoot and Khajuraho.
My favorite movies are English Vinglish, Shankarabharanamu (Telugu), forest Gump(English)
How easy was it to face life?
I took birth as a girl child It was a fortune for me and my family. My parents brought me up better than a boy.
At every stage of life, I keep on thinking that woman particularly after becoming a wife never thinks about herself but always keeps doing things for family members.
This is what I have seen in the life of my great-grandma, grandma, maternal grandma, mother, aunt, and sister.
We know the meaning of woman is a person with extreme super quality. The life of any woman can be a smooth ride, she has to earn respect with hard work and devotion.
No one can understand the woman, she is a fragrance that can be only felt.
