The Drive of Life

Archana G

Born on June 28, 2000, Ms.G. Archana hails from Modachor village of Erode district in Tamil Nadu. She is in her first year of college, studying Mathematics and she aspires to work in the banking sector in future. She is born to Mr.Gunasekaran, a truck driver, and Mrs.Annapoorani.

My father has been driving for almost 30 years now. When he was twelve years old, he started working as a cleaner of trucks and continued to do that for eight years. He became a driver in the year 1987. He has driven all across India — Kolkata, Delhi, Nagpur, Mysore, Hyderabad and other such places.

Whenever my father goes out on duty he returns home only after 20- 25 days. We have missed him on several festivals and family functions. He often goes without proper food and basic necessities, which worries us a lot. But despite all that, he works very hard to drive and transfer goods very carefully and quickly.
