Today let’s talk about another inspiring journey of Delisha Davis, a 24-year-old MCom student from Thrissur. The Girl is a true trailblazer who has broken the stereotype set by society by driving a tanker lorry, for the last three years!  From a very young age, Delisha Davis was very passionate about driving from an early age and her own father, Davis P A who himself have been driving tanker for the past 42 years. The proud father had no qualm about encouraging his daughter and she has been driving her father’s tanker truck, carrying hazardous goods, with each trip extending up to 300km.

She first started learning to ride a two-wheeler and then a four-wheeler but wanted to challenge herself. As a result, so she decided to try driving the tanker truck. she was not satisfied and took the decision to take the wheels of the tanker truck. She has been riding low the radar and driving the tanker from Kochi to Malappuram thrice a week to transport fuel from the refinery in Irumbanam to a petrol bunk in Tirur.  The 23-year-old from Kandassankadavu in the Thrissur district of Kerala came into the headlines only a few weeks ago for driving the tanker transporting fuel from Hindustan Petroleum’s LPG Plant at Irumbanam in Ernakulam to a petrol pump in Thirur, Malappuram district.

Delisha’s came into the limelight two weeks back post a motor vehicle department official stopped her tanker when she was driving to Tirur with the fuel. The department was informed that a young girl was seen driving a tanker through the national highway during the lockdown. The official was surprised when she saw her heavy vehicle driving licence and the licence to carry hazardous goods. The official was quoted saying “The officials congratulated my passion and informed the media. They said my story would be a motivation for women who are scared to drive.

The officials said I am probably the only woman in Kerala who has a licence to carry hazardous goods. I was surprised to know that no one has noticed me driving the tanker for the past three years. Usually, vehicles carrying petrol or diesel are not stopped by motor vehicle inspectors as they are essential commodities. However, a few weeks ago, one official was surprised to see a woman behind the wheels and he immediately alerted officials at the next checking point, assuming that I didn’t have a licence. But the official who stopped me was taken aback when I showed him my licence, the pass issued by the company and other documents. He wondered why the department didn’t know about me all these years and took the initiative to promote it on social media.”

Post returning home she attends her Postgraduate in commerce in the evening batch. She is also holding licenses for a two-wheeler, four-wheeler and six-wheeler. “I don’t know if there is any other woman in Kerala who has the licence to drive a hazardous vehicle at present. I have been crazy about vehicles and driving since childhood. I have two sisters and they have no interest in it. But I jumped at the opportunity when my father asked me if I would go with him on his daily trips. Gradually, I got interested in driving the tanker lorry.”

She drives a 2012-model Ashok Leyland lorry, owned by the pump where she supplies the fuel. But her dream is to drive the Volvo bus someday, also the training is available only in Bengaluru. She plans to the PSC (Public Service Commission) examination and get into government service. She wants to get a job as a driver in Kerala State Road Transport Corporation. “There are enough vacancies but women are not coming forward for the job due to several reasons. But I want to take it forward,” she says. She wants to set an example for women and adds that she had heard about Yogita Raghuvanshi, India’s first woman truck driver.

Marcus Rashford captained England and scored the game’s only goal in a 1-0 win over Romania on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford hails from Wythenshawe, Manchester, England and he was raised by his mother, Mel Rashford. He started training at the 5-year-old and joined the ‘Fletcher Moss Rangers,’ a junior football club. Soon caught the eye of all due to his God gifted talent and played alongside his current teammates, such as Cameron Borthwick–Jackson and Tyler Blackett.

Marcus talent didn’t go unnoticed and at the age of 7, Rashford was enrolled at the academy of the prestigious club ‘Manchester United.’  In recent times Marcus Rashford has grown leaps and bound by coming into his own as a Manchester United goal scorer. The young player is the academy product who has scored on regular intervals this season and has been hitting his groove over the last 12 months under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The youngster was also voted Manchester United’s Player of the Month for November 2019, in appreciation of his significant form.

Image

He stole the limelight when he scored his first-team debut at the ‘UEFA Europa League and followed by another superb goal in his first ‘Premier League’ against ‘Arsenal’ in February 2016. He followed the impressive form by scoring in his debut in the ‘Manchester derby match,’ the ‘League Cup,’ as well as ‘UEFA Champions League. Rashford has been termed as the ‘Wonder Kid” of the English football league and one of the reasons being his natural at attacking his opponents with powerful shots since an early age. In May 2016, Marcus also became the youngest player of England to score in his first international match as a senior.

Rashford made International debut in the ‘UEFA Euro 2016 when he featured in a warm-up match against Australia, Marcus went on to score the opening goal, which resulted in clinching a 2–1 win and in doing so become the youngest English player to do so in an international debut. He went on to break Wayne Rooney’s ‘UEFA Euro 2004’ record by four days, to become the youngest player ever to represent England at the ‘European Championships.’ He achieved this feat by debuting at the age of 18, as a substitute for Adam Lallana, in a 2–1 win over ‘Wales’ at the ‘UEFA Euro 2016.’

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford captained England for the first-time last night beat Romania 1-0 in their final Euro 2020 warm-up game. Marcus converted a 68th-minute penalty after manager Gareth Southgate made nine changes to the team that beat Austria in the last match. This goal was an iconic moment for the captain as he scored his 100th professional goal as a player and out of which he has scored 88 for Manchester United so far. Rashford now has 12 international goals, with this penalty taking him up to 100 for club and country. This is more than David Beckham and Eric Cantona, both of who he overtook this past season, netting 21 club goals in 2020/21.

The story could have been different if Jordan Henderson would not have missed a penalty with 12 minutes remaining. England Manager gave full debuts to Ben Godfrey, Ben White and Sam Johnstone at the Riverside. Though England struggled to test Romania goalkeeper Florin Nita, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jadon Sancho struck the crossbar in a drab first-half display. It has been a long time for coach Gareth Southgate to be convinced of Jack Grealish’s talent to be a part of the England national team, but the Aston Villa midfielder now looks all set to get his chance at Euro 2020.

Image

It wasn’t a vintage display from Grealish, in his seventh appearance, but he was lively throughout and ultimately created the moment that secured victory.  Southgate was quoted saying “We’ve seen with Jack in the two games that he has those moments where he can really turn matches.” He obviously did that from the left in this instance. We pushed him out there by that stage so it has been very useful for him to get those match minutes under his belt, to get closer to full match sharpness. That’s been valuable for several of the players as well.”

England boss Gareth Southgate is yet to pick a replacement for Trent Alexander-Arnold, who suffered a Euro 2020-ending thigh injury, with Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard considered to be contenders to take the Liverpool defender’s spot.

For the first time in the history of the European Championships, the tournament will be hosted across 11 cities in the continent. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the Euros was postponed to 2021, and will kick start  from June 11 to July 11.  The teams are divided into six groups of four teams each and the top two sides from each group will enter the Round of 16.

Group A: Turkey, Italy, Wales, Switzerland

Group B: Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia

Group C: Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia

Group D: England, Croatia, Scotland, Czech Republic

I think it is a terrific achievement to go a whole season with no defeats away from home. We knew that by making these changes, we took a risk of losing that record, but we made everyone proud with a fantastic performance.”
