8 women driving lorries from Kerala to Kashmir

In western countries, it is a common sight for women to drive heavy vehicles like trucks or other heavy machinery but here in India it is a rare sight. We have shown on our website a number of Indian women drivers who specialize in driving heavy vehicles. Some women even run a driving school. We have a report here about a woman who drives a lorry. Why is he in the news? Well, he drove a cargo lorry from Kerala to Kashmir. Jelja Rathesh, 40, of Kerala, is the woman who drove a cargo lorry to her dream destination in Kashmir.

The videos have been shared on the Puthettu Travel Vlog YouTube channel. The video starts from the jail house of Kottayam. He traveled to Ernakulam in his Ford Endeavor. He drove the lorry from Perumbavur in Ernakulam district. He had to supply plywood to Pune and from Pune he carried loads of onions to Kashmir. Jelza was quite excited about the trip because he had witnessed places he had only seen in videos and pictures so far. He started his journey from Kerala and traveled through Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Punjab.

In the video, Jelza is heard saying that people were surprised to see a female driver behind the wheel of a freight truck. Speaking to The Indian Express, Jelza said he was always interested in driving but the situation was not favorable. Jelza learned to drive after marriage. “I have been to Mumbai twice in a lorry with my husband. We got the order for Pune, we also asked about the load of Kashmir from there. The ride was not expensive because we were carrying loads and sleeping inside the car. Sometimes we would cook in the lorry. ”

Jelza was in the lorry with her husband Rathesh and cousin Anish. Jelza noted that the ride was not tiring because there was a bed inside their cabin opposite the car. He mentioned that his visit to Gulmarg was one of the most memorable moments of his trip because he could not believe that he had arrived. Dirty public toilets were his only problem while driving through different states. Jaleja, her husband Rathesh and their cousin Anish started their journey in an Indian Benz lorry loaded with plywood from Haryana and unloaded at Bangalore in Karnataka. He then received a load of sugar from Mysore in Karnataka and unloaded it in Kerala which completed his trip.

Jelza noted that every time someone saw him behind the wheel, he saw them being surprised because they didn’t expect it. It gave him more confidence and became the fuel for his future journey. Jelza is now planning to tour the eastern part of the country in his truck. He wants to go to New Delhi once in his lorry. As mentioned above, Jelza is not the first woman to drive a heavy vehicle in India. Earlier, we had a college student in Kerala who had a license to drive hazardous substances such as petrol and diesel. He was driving the petrol tanker that his father had been driving for years.
