There is no dearth of jokes questioning a woman’s ability to drive, and till date, driving is considered a profession only for men. However, 51-year-old Surekha Shankar Yadav broke this stereotype almost three decades back and became the first female train driver of India in 1988.
Image Source: Hailing from Satara in Maharashtra, Surekha was born on September 2, 1965. She took admission in a vocational training course after completing her schooling from St. Paul Convent High School. She then decided to pursue a diploma in electrical engineering from the Polytechnic Government College in Satara.
