This girl fought financial crisis to become Train Driver in India, let’s praise her

Women are destined to achieve great things in life. There is literally nothing in this world that can stop them from touching the pinnacle of success. Just like men, women too are going places with relative ease in this competitive world.

Mamata Sahu of Narayanpur village under Baliapal block in Balasore district became an inspiration for many girls as she has become a Loco Pilot in South Eastern Railway, Kharagpur Division.

Coming from an economically backward section of the society, farmer’s daughter Mamata always dreamt of doing something extraordinary since her childhood stage. Despite her financial crisis, she secured 75% marks in Class 10 examination and then she got enrolled in Plus Science.

The determined Mamata went to Jharsuguda to pursue Diploma in Engineering. After finishing her course, she went to Chennai and worked in a private company with a meagre salary.

Mamata, who was not satisfied with the private job had continued her struggle and worked hard towards her dream. In 2013, success followed her around like a shadow as the young woman got an appointment from South Eastern Railway, Kharagpur Division for the post of Assistant Pilot.

But, she went through an ordeal as people started taunting and demotivating her for her ‘male-dominated’ job. But these things didn’t bring Mamata down as she continued working on her dream.

From Assistant Pilot of a freight train, she is now plying her trade as driving passenger train, helping lakhs of people reach their destinations.

In a competitive world where men are competing with gumption to achieve greater heights, women are also escalating themselves in their respective fields as well. The fact that women’s efforts go overlooked is such a sad thing to see nowadays. Let’s not forget about Mamata Sahu’s success story.

Mamata Sahu’s position would certainly inspire girls to dictate sharp and decisive moves to take the right step in their careers.
