People get surprised watching me drive autorickshaw: Noida, Gzb's woman auto driver

30-year-old Ruby Singhal, has broken the stereotype by becoming the only woman autorickshaw driver in Noida and Ghaziabad, which is still considered to be a man's profession.

The woman who is a mother of three took up this occupation almost six years ago. That was the time when her family suffered huge financial losses. "I know people get surprised when they see me driving an autorickshaw. This is considered a man's job", Ruby said.

Ruby's husband, Ajay Singhal, runs a small transport business. Despite being opposed by her father and husband, Ruby stood firm on her decision. "My brother extended help and lent me the money to buy a new autorickshaw. I won the confidence of my husband once I started earning and supporting him financially", she said.

On being asked if she gets scared of the criminal incidents on roads which are happening on a regular basis, Ruby said she has adopted a technique to overcome these fears, which is 'being fearless'.

"In these six years, I have learnt one survival technique, one should be a 'dabang' (brave). I never think twice before beating hooligans. I am happy with who I am. I think every woman who is going through a financial crisis should start working", she said.
