    Anand Kumari

    from New Delhi, Delhi

Today I’d like to introduce you to one of our Bikxie pink’s brave pilot – Mrs Anand Kumari. Bikxie pink is a service introduced by a startup we started in 2016 called 'Bikxie' in which women are provided employment opportunities to work as delivery personnel on two-wheelers, the company provides two-wheelers and training on two-wheelers to these women to help them make a career for themselves in a world which has been historically been male-dominated across the globe. Anand has been with us for nearly a year now and is one of the most sincere and hardworking women I have come across. Last year in April we decided to visit the families of some of our pilots to understand how they felt about this brave new career path that their wives or daughters had adopted by breaking all stereotypes in this typically male-dominated profession. We met with Anand’s husband and family too in this endeavour and came to be pleasantly surprised by the forward-thinking attitude he held which is quite rare in the underprivileged & backward sections of the society that they belong to.
On 5th of Feb this year Anand kept awaiting a phone call from her husband as he always used to call her every few hours – It never came. She somehow couldn’t call him amidst all her work and household responsibilities until at one point in the afternoon that she received a phone call from a policeman confirming her identity to break a news to her that would turn her world upside down. He had met with a serious accident on the road and was being rushed to the Trauma Centre with severe head injuries. He did not make it. We got the unfortunate news about his demise leaving behind three kids in Anand’s care. The sudden incident left the family completely shattered. It was a heart-wrenching sight to witness such bereavement for a family, especially young children.
I have thus decided to reach out to everyone I can, to raise some funds to support her family. The money will directly go into her account for her to sustain her kids’ education and wellbeing. I would like to urge you to please play the video to meet the family first hand and then decide as to how you want to help.
We at Bikxie have made a significant contribution from our own pockets but every penny we raise will help this lady to fight the difficulties in her life as she is the sole breadwinner for her family now.
I hope we gather our prayers and wishes for her and her children.
