WOMEN BUS CONDUCTORS


March 2005:

photography and interviews with women bus conductors of Bangalore.

On their uniform:

" I feel more safe in this. People see me as a conductor and respect me."

" Earlier, I used to travel only from college to home. I did not know Bangalore. Now I am always on the bus, meeting so many different people. I used to be very scared. I did not want to attend my first day of job, my brother brought me here, "tumba bhaya aithoo" ( was very scared.)I could not blow the whistle!"

  1. Hello Jasmeen, Just got your blog address from another blog. Really interested to see the stuff you got here. Watching this photos with interviews - it's like watching a reality show. But I wish if you just concentrate on any "isms" like "feminism". Life has enough room for all genders, races, cultures etc. Right?

    Best regards,
    Jo.
