LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The horrors of journeying home by a cab in Shillong

TNT- The Northeast Today

Respected Sir/Madam

With the increasing number of vehicles in Shillong and the growing fleet of cabs in the city, I would like to throw my weight on the issue from Madanryting to Laitkor or Smit and other areas. What is strange is when you hop in for a ride from Madanryting you might have to ask for a Sphygmomanometer(an instrument for measuring blood pressure). The total capacity of a Taxi seating of Maruti 800 is five including the driver but in this case I have witnessed including myself when taking the ride, the front passenger area is packed like a sack of potatoes, they try shoving in as many as four! and the back area which makes you throw up by the time you exit the taxi.

Meet Northeast India’s 1st lady bouncer from Meghalaya’s capital town Shillong- Claudia Jessica Bamon

At first sight, when I met Jessica for an interview, she looked like some celebrity who had less time yet agreed to do an interview with a group of media persons because, well, of course she deserved all the limelight owing to her various achievements.  However, as we proceeded to be seated in her car so she would not get late for gym, I saw a humble, hardworking and a motivated girl next door who is not only herself inspired but possessed the ability to inspire many other people who often give up on their dreams. As we drove past the busy streets of Police Bazaar to our destination Laban, she offered me her inspiring story in just a span of 15 minutes and those few minutes of conversation were totally enough to inspire me and I hope this piece inspires all you readers too.
