Women drive rickshaws in a hospital as a kind gesture to help patients in Gujarat. Read this story that will warm your heart.
Women drive rickshaws in a hospital as a kind gesture to help patients in Gujarat. Read this story that will touch your heart.
In Gujarat E-rickshaws (electric rickshaws), are being run by women in a hospital to transfer patients from one ward to another. It’s a great initiative by a Vadodara based self help organization. These E-rickshaws run on battery to prevent pollution.
It is tiresome for patients who are suffering from complicated diseases to move around from one ward to another. And there are some patients who don’t even have help from family. In these circumstances these E-rickshaw women drivers can come to their rescue. These women are empowering themselves by learning to drive. By taking up unconventional jobs they are serving the sick and the society at large.
Isn’t it wonderful to have someone move you around in a hospital when you are sick? By empowering women in different ways, we are also serving communities. It’s a great step towards service and we hope these enthusiastic lady drivers will do a wonderful job in making this initiative successful.

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
