On being asked about how Surekha came by her profession and why she chose trains– She no way allowed or pictured getting a motor woman or a loco airman, though she was fascinated by trains at nonage, but after completing her education, she applied for the job and the criteria were to have a parchment in any sluice and be over 18 times of age. She cleared the 3 way- the written test, the viva, and the sickie test.
A bit about her family background and nonage– Surekha’s father was a planter and they lived in Satara. She entered good stimulant on the education front since nonage as her parents and cousins were probative of her hankering to learn. That gave her the confidence and the foundation to make it to her position.
What people say and about being judged for making her way into a manly fortification- Surekha countries that people judge and note, no matter who you’re and what you do, that’s how society is, but what we need is a mindset that allows us to concentrate on what we do. also, people are impelled to change their mindset about you. She believes no job or area’s manly dominated, it’s just that women haven’t entered that field yet and formerly they do, there’s no question of dominance.
Turning points in her career as a loco airman- The first train that she operated was a goods train and as an assistant motorist. She worked under the observation of the motorist and after about 5- 6 times, she came to the motorist. In 1999, she was appointed to operate one of the Mumbai original trains, which is the lifeline of the megacity.
Surekha’s favorite route to operate trains- She loves all the routes she drives on, especially the ghat sections and Kasara to Igatpuri is her favorite, for its verdure. She takes trains on those routes indeed now, where they couple a banker machine from before to take the help of two machines to climb the grade, once they reach the peak the banker machine is uncoupled, while the train keeps moving.
