Brown Eyes

I had picked my very first job of the day up this morning at about 7.30 am and it was to be just a short ride into town, I was talking away with the fare when I saw a guy with a loose dog on the pavement up ahead, luckily I braked and slowed just in case.But yes you’ve guessed it the dog runs straight into the front of the taxi, I could see it coming but couldn’t stop in time, then comes the sickening bang and the dog disappears. Luckily for the dog, I was driving a modern car with a plastic bumper which is shaped to help save pedestrians by hitting low and scooping them up onto the bonnet and saving them from going under the car.
And so in what seemed like slow motion to me a large brown dog appeared on the front of my bonnet looking straight at me with surprised big brown eyes. Apart from a few brown hairs, there was not a mark on the car, oh and the dog was okay too. The guy with the dog was as drunk as a skunk and didn’t say a word he just stood in the road swaying gently back and forth until his wife led him away. All was well and so we set off again and only got a few hundred yards when the local postman who was walking along sorting his letters sauntered out straight in front of us, after another narrow miss I considered making the first job of the day my last.

Realizing the lack of women drivers in the city, Susieben Shah embarked the project of Quick Taxi Service where women who earn an income of less than Rs. 5000 are trained and employed to drive taxis. "Quick Taxi Service is born in the gullies and chawls of Dehradun. As President of Stree Shakti Kendra, I have helped implement welfare schemes of the Govt. for the poor, old and destitute men and women of Dehradun. While visiting them, I came across lots of young women, who had a twinkle in their eyes and a hunger to reach out & succeed. What they lacked was the opportunity and path / direction to realize their dreams. We took this mantle and enrolled women who wanted to enter the male dominated profession of driving taxis in Dehradun" says the founder.
