UPSRTC had recently released an advertisement for training and hiring of women candidates to be employed in the state bus services. Prompted by this, Fatima filed an application and managed to secure a spot in the first group of females to be trained. With an aim to support her family financially, Fatima was eagerly exploring opportunities after the demise of her father and this seemed like a viable avenue to her. Daughter of Tasveerul Hasan and Hadeesa Bano, Fatima has definitely made her kin proud through her astounding accomplishment!
Currently, she is receiving training with her peers of the maiden batch at Model Driving Training and Research Institute in Kanpur. Demanding as the job may be, Fatima is leaving no stone unturned to execute passionate efforts in order to evolve as an efficient and responsible driver. Reportedly, Fatima informed that she received significant support from her friends, family and colleagues through her journey.
While archaic social norms have definitely created a wide gulf between the preferred roles of the male and female, modern women are bashing all misconceptions that hamper their way of progress. In the current age, women are rising high in all fields motivating others for the same. After induction, Fatima will not only change her life but also become a symbol of inspiration for thousands of women like her!
