Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday tweeted that he would log out of his social media accounts and give them to "seven women achievers" who will "share their life's journeys" on International Women's Day."Greetings on International Women's Day! We salute the spirit and accomplishments of our Nari Shakti. As I'd said a few days ago, I'm signing off. Through the day, seven women achievers will share their life journeys and perhaps interact with you through my social media accounts," PM Modi tweeted. “India has outstanding women achievers in all parts of the nation. These women have done great work in a wide range of sectors. Their struggles and aspirations motivate millions. Let us keep celebrating the achievements of such women and learning from them,” he said.
Sneha Mohandoss, the founder of Food Bank India, was the first to tweet from PM Modi’s Twitter handle. She posted a video as well to introduce herself and what she do
You heard of food for thought. Now, it is time for action and a better future for our poor.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
Hello, I am @snehamohandoss. Inspired by my mother, who instilled the habit of feeding the homeless, I started this initiative called Foodbank India. #SheInspiresUspic.twitter.com/yHBb3ZaI8n
I work with volunteers, many of whom are outside India, to work towards eradicating hunger. We have over 20 chapters and have impacted several people with our work. We also initiated activities like mass cooking, cooking marathons, breast feeding awareness drives- @snehamohandoss— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
I feel empowered when I do what I'm passionate about! I wish to inspire my fellow citizens, especially women to come forward and join hands with me. I urge everyone to feed atleast one needy person and contribute to a hunger free planet. - @snehamohandoss#SheInspiresUs— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
She thanked tweeple for being chosen by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the following tweet.
Thank you.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
I’m using the PM’s handle to spread awareness on the need to remove hunger.
Will you and others help me?
It’s simple. Feed the needy, ensure no food goes waste. - @snehamohandoss#SheInspiresUshttps://t.co/bp70g7OJEw
Thanks for your wishes and greetings- I would urge you to take similar steps in your community to make India hunger free. I believe in Mahatama Gandhis quote - The World has enough for everyone's need but not for everyones greed. - @snehamohandoss#SheInspiresUshttps://t.co/LpiaQmT2eX— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020

Acceptance is the greatest reward we can give to ourselves. We can’t control our lives but we surely can control our attitude towards life. At the end of the day, it is how we survive our challenges that matters most.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
Know more about me and my work- @MalvikaIyer#SheInspiresUspic.twitter.com/T3RrBea7T9
I survived a gruesome bomb blast at the age of 13 that blew off my hands and severely damaged my legs. Yet, I worked and went on to get my PhD.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
Giving up is never an option. Forget your limitations and take on the world with confidence and hope - @MalvikaIyer#SheInspiresUs
I believe that education is indispensable for change. We need to sensitize young minds about discriminatory attitudes. We need to show people with disabilities as role models instead of showing them as weak and dependent. - @MalvikaIyer#SheInspiresUs— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
Attitude is half the battle in destigmatizing disability. The fact that the honourable PM has chosen to broadcast my views on Women's Day makes me believe that India is on the right path in dismantling age old superstitions regarding disability. - @MalvikaIyer#SheInspiresUs— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020

I always dreamt of reviving the traditional crafts of Kashmir because this is a means to empower local women.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 8, 2020
I saw the condition of women artisans and so I began working to revise Namda craft.
I am Arifa from Kashmir and here is my life journey. #SheInspiresUspic.twitter.com/hT7p7p5mhg
