Continuing with our special feature for Woman’s Day, today we share International Woman’s Day 2021 – Sports Persona and Others. Women in India like their global counterparts have also ventured into sports, even those, which were hitherto the domain of men. P T Usha, Ashwini Nachappa, Mary Kom, Sania Mirza, Sania Nehwal and P V Sindhu are just some of the women, who have upheld the Indian flag in the international sports arena.
Today, women are cabbies, rickshaw drivers, courier girls, Zomato valets, etc. A couple of days back; we met a courier girl, who delivered an important document for us. Mukta Singh (Pic. Courtesy – Gayatri T Rao) lost her job due to the lockdown as a result of the corona pandemic. She had to join a couple of courier companies, one of them an ecommerce company, to eke out a living. Since the job is risky, she moves about with another female courier delivery person.
