A sixty year old uneducated woman at the helm of e-governance in an Ajmer Panchayat?

The "Manthan "award for e- content given to Noorani Bai brought to the digital world this unsung heroine of Ajmer.  Noorani keeps records of the Panchayat Raj in her village, helps keep tables of data and even taps out reports on projects.  Both in English and Hindi.  For a woman who never went to school, Noorani’s education has leapfrogged into the digtal world.
