A cook who hardly earns 1000 rupees, becomes the first woman to win 1 crore on KBC 11

There is no one who wants to lead a frugal life in today’s world and the story of Babita Tade will inspire you to the core. She was living a life that many people struggle with.

Who is Babita and what does she do? She is a cook by profession who makes Khichdi for school children. Her income was somewhere around Rs 1500 per month.

But unlike many, she was happy with whatever salary she got because children who she cooked for love her food so much.

Babita’s life took a drastic U-turn when she first appeared on Kaun Banega Crorepati 11. She not only won the prize money, but she has also won many millions of hearts.


Yes, her knowledge earned her Rs 1 crore and became the first woman in KBC 11 to have won Rs 1 crore, the second person to win that much money in the 11th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Before Babita, IAS aspirant from Bihar by the name of Sanoj Raj had also won Rs 1 crore. Sanoj, who had quit rather than attempting to answer Rs 7 crore question, had said that he wanted to help farmers and those who were underprivileged once he gets himself a stable job.

In a recent interview, Sanoj Raj had disclosed what was irritating about the show.

“There were 10 of us as contestants, who were put up in a hotel. We became friends. One thing I found irritating was the clothes. I have always given importance to comfort while dressing up but on the show, fitting and colours were more important. So much effort went into choosing our clothes,” he told IANS.

He had dedicated his special win to his father. His father was sitting in the audience section when he bagged the big deal.

“My father is a farmer. It is not about giving money to him. It is his money… He couldn’t finish his studies due to our family’s condition. We concentrated on our studies so that we don’t have to face that situation,” he added.
