Loved the Da Da Ding video? The new ‘Da Da Ding: The other women’ video is equally empowering and focuses on the really hardworking women of rural India.
The recent ‘Da Da Ding’ video featuring Indian sportswomen with Deepika Padukone had taken the Internet by storm. But now the revised version-‘Da Da Ding: The other women’ video has been released by Youtube channel Epic spiritual, which features the resilient Indian women of rural India.
Women are the pillars of the rural economy due to their total involvement with agriculture, forest protection, cattle care and dairying. This is apart from the household work, which is a part of their daily routine.
The video showcases how these women do back breaking manual labour such as construction or ploughing fields in the scorching sun, barefoot.
At times they travel miles to carry water back to their homes or to reach schools and colleges. Their daily life is a struggle as they live without basic necessities and sanitation. Yet, they smile, laugh and enjoy their lives as well. In reality they do not receive as much credit and appreciation as they should for the amount of labour they put into their work.
These hard working women are the invisible lifeline of this country. They are involved in almost all sectors at the grass root level and without them the country’s economy will be diversely affected. They may not have shoes, but they have an inherent strength that makes them women of substance.
We appreciate both the videos that are dedicated in honour of women irrespective of whichever field of work they belong to. Enjoy the video below, featuring them.

I'll be 43 soon and yes, I almost gave in to my conditioning and asked myself- what did I do wrong? Did I lead him on? But not any more.
This wasn’t the first time something like this has happened, and I have a feeling that this won’t be the last either!
So on May 12th, I ran into this man. I was waiting for something and it was raining. He seemed decent and we got talking. About work.
I realised that his company could actually do some work for my NGO and we exchanged numbers. After that we talked about general stuff on WhatsApp sometimes, and he connected me to some others for the work I had in mind.
To think that money can buy you anything is as wrong as singling a woman out after her divorce because the world feels she got overcompensated.
A lot of people are attracted to money and that’s not a bad thing. Which is also why everyone talks about money and the rich. The rich always make the headlines.
The rich, also, get upset when their personal lives are talked about, and rightly so. They have all the right to privacy.
Time moves on. However, people do not.
