Default Re: Yogita Raghuvanshi - A woman trucker at the wheel!

Very interesting to see this lady changing the wheel herself. I used to drive an 18-wheeler and when I punctured I called the tow truck. To torque the wheel again I dropped in by a tyre shop.
I have never done this work myself. Besides, I dont think I would have managed.
The trucks were covered by all sorts of insurance that paid for these services.

it is so refreshing and uplifting to see women take on the jobs that were deemed "men only". Kudos to these every day heros for looking at society straight in the face and saying bring it on.

I hope our Indian media covers more of these people than influencers, cricketers' wives and Big Boss contestants.

Hats off to such people, especially women! Part of my motivation to take up lot of things predominantly male dominated is because it is important for our society to change their mindset that women are equally capable of achieving such feats!
