03 January : Savitri Phule's birth anniversary.
Savitri Phule
Stamp issued on 10.03.1998

"Go, Get Education
Be self-reliant, be industrious
Work - gather wisdom and riches,
All gets lost without knowledge
We become animal without wisdom,
Sit idle no more, go, get education
End misery of the oppressed and forsaken,
You’ve got a golden chance to learn
So learn and break the chains of caste.
Throw away the Brahman’s scriptures fast."
- Most loved and valued poem of Savitri Phule

Along with her husband, Jyotirao Phule, she played an important role in improving women's rights in India during British rule. Phule along with her husband founded the first women's school at Bhide Wada in Pune in 1848. She worked very hard to abolish discrimination and unfair treatment of people based on caste and gender. She is regarded as an important figure of the social reform movement in Maharashtra. Savitribai Phule was the country’s first woman teacher and the first leader of the women’s liberation movement.
