The "Pink" Cabs.......!!!!!
For a place like Shillong where women do play quite a prominent role in comparison,I feel women driven taxis came in quite late into the scene. We have often talked about this in the past as why women have not taken up this job where else we see them in all spheres of employment here. And this year when the first lot of them were finally given a "Green Signal" to take off on the road, we were sure glad to see them. But I have not been able to reason as to why is pink always associated with the female gender......from pink dresses when we were kids to pink cabs now.....some how reminds me of renaming them into "Barbie Cabs "..... It is an all woman taxi ...yes men not allowed above 12yrs. So sorry Dudes !!!! .I have not had the pleasure of taking a ride into one.....but of course I was already warned by Neelav though still within the age group....that I should not even dream of asking him to get into this pink(ugh!!!!) color taxi.
