Larkian aur bike? No one could ever think of it before but now, we girls are breaking the stereotype!
About 3 months ago, I was in the market with my mamu and he was telling me about this girl who came every day to pick her younger brother up from school which is right in front of my mamu’s apartment. After a week I actually saw this girl who is probably in her early 20’s- she came confidently riding her motor bike, picked up her brother and left. I also noticed many people looking astoundingly at her( I was one of them too!)
A week ago, I saw another girl on her way to university (because she was wearing a uniform) riding a bike just as confidently. I don’t know why I felt so happy looking at that girl. I think it is because we girls are breaking the ‘stereotype’ and the barrier between what a man can do that a woman cannot.
In Pakistan, we don’t have this trend of girls riding a motorbike; we have always seen a motorbike as a vehicle for males. But it certainly is not. Not everyone out there can afford a car and there are thousands of other problems out there which makes it necessary for a household to have its own vehicle so they don’t have to ask for favors and wait for an auto or bus in the time of emergency.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with girls riding a motorbike. There is nothing in the world that girls can’t do. These are just stereotypes that do not let us take a step forward. Don’t let them stop you!
#breaking stereotypes -Girls can also ride a bike!
