Early life and education of Sindhutai

 Sindhutai was born on 14 November in Wardha district of Maharashtra into a broad poor cattle grazing family.  Her father was eager to educate her, but the mother was not.  Abhimanyu (Sindhutai's father) used to send her to school on the pretext of grazing cattle, but could not afford a real slate due to poverty, so she used the 'Bhadri tree' leaf as a slate.  He gave up education due to poverty and marriage at a young age

 At the age of 10, she was married to a man of 30 years of age.  She faced a difficult life after marriage but did not lose hope.  In his new home, he fought against the exploitation of local women collecting cow dung by the forest department and the Landlords. And he won in this movement. This movement later became quite his opponent, making things more difficult for him.
