Disabled Mother Of Two Becomes Haryana’s Very First Bus Conductor

  • IWB Post
  •  July 19, 2019

“I am Haryana’s first lady conductor and I am so happy to get this job,” says 33-year-old Sharmilla.

Haryana’s very first lady conductor, Sharmilla is a differently abled mother of two daughters and hails from a small village of Haryana’s Rewari district. InUth reported her saying, “Both I and my husband were unemployed. We are raising two daughters. I had been looking for a job for the last 8 to 10 years and when I learned about this vacancy, I applied against it and got the job.”

She is among the only two women who got the job as bus conductors in a recruitment drive conducted by Haryana government last year.

Being a bus conductor still remains one of those professions in India which are not considered fit for women. Despite this fact and a 40 percent disability in one of her legs, Sharmilla went ahead to pursue her dream and did not let anything come into her way.
