Sandra Bullock

In Hollywood, a thrilling movie has made in the year 1994 named Speed. In this movie, Annie(played by Sandra Bullock), the heroine, is suddenly forced to drive a bus, as she has never driven such a large vehicle before, except for a Buick car, yet successfully manages to drive the bus until a bomb planted on the bus goes off. She, despite no experience, jumped over the breaking part of the flyover successfully. What an exciting scene it was! Well, it was just a movie that applied trick photography, but in real life, today's women are driving, be it commercial or fighter planes, rickshaws, trucks, or passenger buses.

An introduction of Priyanka Kumari Sharma:

Everyone knows Priyanka Gandhi, who is active in Indian politics, and Priyanka Chopra, a famous actress in the film industry, but there is also a Priyanka Kumari Sharma, who is driving a bus full of passengers on the roads of UP state. This woman is a widow, and being a widow in Indian society is the most unfortunate phase of a woman's life, even today. With self-confidence, courage, and proper guidance, anybody can convert his life's misfortune into good fortune, even if she is a widow, like Priyanka Sharma.

The life-changing misfortune of her:

Priyanka Kumari Sharma (31) is a resident of Hardauri village in the Banka district of Bihar. She was married to Rajeev Singh, and they have two sons, Anand Raj (13) and Nipun Raj (11). Her husband used to work as a laborer in Dilshad Garden, Delhi. Unfortunately, he got addicted to alcohol and died due to kidney failure. Priyanka, a widow, was alone with the responsibility of her children. Priyanka was just 8th pass, but instead of accepting her bad luck, she decided to meet the challenge. She worked as a laborer in a factory in Delhi; and also started a tea stall. But she was unable to earn enough amount to educate her children. So she accepted a job as a laborer in a transport company where she found guidance and financial support from the truck driver Subhash Yadav. He advised Priyanka to learn about truck driving. Priyanka joined truck driving training at Sanjay Gandhi Transport. After the training, she worked as a driver's assistant, learned the necessary skill of driving and basic truck repairs, and obtained a driving license after four years.

Her achievements as a truck driver:

Priyanka drove from Delhi to almost all major cities of India, Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Bangalore, Assam, and many other places with her truck. Isn't it a more exciting reality than the scene with Annie in the movie Speed? In 2022, the State Government of UP published an advertisement for the job of a diver for women. Priyanka applied for and had selected along with 70 women. Out of the first 27 women, Priyanka became the first woman bus driver of the UP Government, appointed as the bus driver at Kosambi Bus Depot, UP. She is the first-ever woman bus driver in the UP government; hats off!

Let's cite those women who shave their heads after being widowed and spend an unknown life on the banks of the Ganga river wearing white clothes. Priyanka Kumari Sharma has emerged as an icon for those widows and Indian women.

Today sons of Priyanka are doing studies by staying in the hostel. Her parents and brother, who broke up with her over her truck driving job, are now happy with Priyanka's success.
