Watch: Traffic is not the only hurdle women drivers in India (make that Delhi) have to face

How do you prevent collisions with casual sexism and stereotyping?


Being a woman driver in India anywhere in India is bad enough. In Delhi, it’s a special kind of bad. For women drivers in the capital not only have to contend with heavy traffic, rash driving, bad roads and jaywalkers – humans and animals – like other drivers, they also have to face their casual sexism, mansplaining and a whole lot of stereotyping.

The YouTube channel Old Delhi Films tries to make it all a little lighthearted in its comedy sketch (above) Life of a Woman Driver on Delhi roads.

The biggest problem (surprise surprise) appears to be the male ego and its godchild, mansplaining. Women obviously can’t be expected to know a thing about driving and, as the “fairer” or “gentler” sex, need to be taught the art by men.

When women are the receiving end, even road rage changes its form to become a disguised mixture of sexism and stereotyping. Fortunately, there’s no reference anywhere to the myth of backseat driving.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
