72-year-old Laxmi Verma was taken aback when she came to know that she is the new darling of social media.
The video the woman works as a Devanagari typist in front of the collector’s office in Madhya Pradesh was posted by a Twitter user. Soon, his tweet began gaining traction and everybody including sports stars like Virender Sehwag started tweeting about her and offered help to her.
A superwoman for me. She lives in Sehore in MP and the youth have so much to learn from her. Not just speed, but the spirit and a lesson that no work is small and no age is big enough to learn and work. Pranam ! pic.twitter.com/n63IcpBRSH

According to the Times of India, Laxmi had a dispute with her husband, post which she started working at a printing firm in Indore. In 2008, she came back to Sehore and started working as a typist at district collector’s office.
She told reporters, “I have been working here for the past 12 years, I learned to type while I worked at a printing press in Indore. The then district collector Raghvendra Singh helped me start this work.”
People are, really, appreciating her determination and hard work.
