On one side we talk about Sudha Murthy who never opted out any IT career, she just believed in herself and became an Indian philanthropist and writer. On the other hand, we speak about a brave lady like Indra Nooyi, the chief executive officer of PepsiCo who’s running a giant corporation. These sheros have one thing in common- ‘they never settled for anything less.’ There is nothing a woman can’t do. She juggles Womanhood along with corporate life.
For a woman, any profession is a respectful job and they are breaking down all sorts of boundaries and flying high. We love that the WoW (woman on Wheels) campaign that help these women to become self-sustaining and powerful in their own way.
“Pink Autos in Kolkata?”- Another set of woman drivers been driving the pink auto rickshaws. Citizens have witnessed a plethora of Pink autos within the city, with three women (Mousumi, Tandra, and Mumtaz) already have taken up driving auto from the Tollygunge-Hazra route making it more safe for the woman.
“Kolkata’s lady bus-driver”- Meet Pratima Poddar, a mother of two and a bus driver. She is probably Kolkata’s only woman bus driver, who drives behind the wheel of Nimta-Howrah. Breaking all the boundaries she has proved that everything can be achieved with hard work and dedication. This lady is unique in her sphere, being the only woman bus driver in a male-dominated transport industry and making her family proud.
