It was a Friday morning, 7:30a.m. I felt too lazy to drive my car, so my son booked an uber. In five minutes, the uber reached at the entrance gate, waiting for my arrival. I just saw the cab number and entered inside the car. I was so busy that I didn't pay any attention towards the driver. I was searching for an important paper from my leather bag, so instantly said, 'Please, go quick! I'm in a hurry!'
The voice came, 'Yes, Ma'am!'
I was literally surprised when I heard a female voice! I stopped my work for a second and looked at the driver. The driver was a young lady. Maybe, around thirty or thirty-two! For the first time, I saw a lady, driving an uber!
The car was running on the national high-way towards the destination. It was quite a distance from my home. She was driving perfectly well. Hundred times, I had travelled in uber, but never I saw any lady, driving an uber! I didn't know, why I became so enthusiastic to know why she had chosen this profession. I started the conversation,'If you don't mind, can I ask you some questions?'
'Yes, ma'am! No problem.'
'I guess, you are well qualified!'
'Yes, ma'am! I have completed my education. I have done my MBA course.
'Oh, wow!!! Why did you then choose this profession, instead of going for an academic career?'
I could see her face in the rear view mirror. She smiled and the way she expressed her views, I was really amazed!
Very politely, she said, 'Driving was my passion from my childhood, ma'am! Of course I do respect each and every job. In this case, at least I fulfilled my desire! I love driving! I don't mind for big or small job. I wanted a job where I can get satisfaction. I got offers from m.n.c but this one I preferred because I like it! I know, I can't get enough money out of it, yet as I told you 'I love driving'!That's it!'
