Sometimes situations change in a way that you experience the other side of the spectrum. You witness and live scenarios that you saw and lived from a different perspective.
Currently going through something like that and it's fascinating and messed up to say the least.
Have you ever been in a situation that you're usually on the other side of?

Ever since I started driving, I took pleasure in it even when I made mistakes and heard a variety of taunts about being a female driver. The key was to stick to it without getting disheartened and dissuaded by what people said. At home too, it was never a question of my gender; in fact, my brothers taught me to change a tyre before they let me start the car. I knew how to check the oil and when to get the oil changed before I started driving.
I've always felt that being a woman in Pakistan comes with a whole set of hurdles, owing to years of bias. Although it’s difficult to surpass them, I am determined to do so and I encourage all of you to do the same!
This was why when I came across the #GariSeYari

* I was so happy to see that finally someone is addressing the issue. The truth is women drivers know as much about cars as anyone out there so why are we afraid to say it out loud?
