SR : TPJ : Journey of a woman loco pilot
In late September 2013, P. Narayana Vadivu broke new ground in the annals of Southern Railway.
When the 39-year-old woman Loco Pilot cranked the nearly 120-tonne diesel locomotive to haul an empty freight train from Vriddhachalam to Ariyalur, it was the first time in Southern Railway history that an “all women crew” headed by her executed the task.
Women is the mother of a man.she has tremendous power which is not outshown all the times.Women like Ms.Vadiku should be a great example for Women of our society.
The creator of this World...... and Civilization
