Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that India's Nari Shakti is touching new heights of progress in every field while addressing the nation in the 110th episode of the 'Mann Ki Baat', a monthly radio programme.

He further said, "Who would have thought till a few years ago that in our country, women living in villages would also fly drones. But today this is becoming possible. Today, there is so much discussion about Drone Didi in every village, 'Namo Drone Didi, Namo Drone Didi' is on everyone's lips. Everyone is talking about them."

Speaking on the use of technology to preserve wildlife, he said, "Technology is being used extensively for the conservation of wildlife in different parts of our country." He further said, "A few days later, on March 3 is World Wildlife Day. This day is celebrated with the aim of spreading awareness about the conservation of wildlife. This year, digital innovation has been given top priority in the theme of World Wildlife Day."

"Due to the efforts of the government in the last few years, the number of tigers in the country has increased. The number of tigers in the Tiger Reserve of Chandrapur, Maharashtra has crossed the figure of 250. Here cameras have been installed at the border of the village and the forest. Whenever a tiger comes close to the village local people get an alert on their mobile phones with the help of AI," PM Modi said.

He said, "A Bengaluru-based company has prepared apps named 'Bagheera' and 'Garuda'. With the 'Bagheera' app, the speed of vehicles and other activities during jungle safaris can be monitored."

"Tribal families living in Khatkali village near Melghat Tiger Reserve have converted their houses into homestays with the help of the government. This is becoming a big source of income for them," said PM Modi in 'Mann Ki Baat'.

"We often limit the talk to cows and buffaloes only But goats are also an important livestock which is not discussed much. Many people in different areas of the country are also associated with goat rearing. In Kalahandi, Odisha, goat rearing is becoming a major source of livelihood of the villagers and is enhancing their standard of living as well," PM Modi said at the 110th episode. 

Hailing the contributions of the people, PM Modi said, "Great to see countless people selflessly making efforts to preserve Indian culture and traditions. The efforts of citizens in Jammu and Kashmir, Arunachal Pradesh and Karnataka inspire everyone."
