A local of Satna’s Kothikanchan town, the Chaturvedi family now lives in Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa.
Chaturvedi’s mom said that her daughter has demonstrated what little girls are able to do. “It’s an extremely pleased minute for every one of us; significantly more in light of the fact that our little girl served the country,” her dad DP Chaturvedi said.
Longing that each family gets a girl like hers, Chaturvedi’s mom prompted individuals not to segregate amongst little girls and children as everybody is similarly able.
