Story of three lady loco pilots- Soumita Roy,
Pompa Das and Piu Kole who are working in Sealdah division. In this column they have shared various stories of their experiences as well as challenges as lady loco pilots. Some of the experiences are very funny like while one of them was standing at a signal with her train,
an old lady told her 'move your train, I am facing problem to burn my stove' (that lady was cooking beside the rail track). But some of the experiences are not
so pleasant like near Park Circus station stone pelting occurs regularly. Similarly near Bullygunj station everyday the market almost enters the rail track and that affects the railway operation. They have also informed how people become careless while crossing rail tracks and how that affects the mental health of loco pilots. Further they have informed how major portion of the society is not accepting them and being rude to them.
Kudos to them and all the best for their future endeavors. We have to keep in mind that railway is for us and those brave ladies are serving us only. Let's take vow to become more responsible and make their life easier so that they can serve us better.
