In the past, we’ve seen women skiing in a saree, knocking down all 10 pins while bowling and also hula-hooping perfectly wearing the traditional garment. Now, Monalisa Bhadra of Jahal village, Jajpur district, Odisha, has shared videos of herself horse-riding while donning the 9 yards.
According to India Today, her husband Badri Narayan Bhadra introduced her to YouTube and now she earns Rs. 1.5 lakh by uploading videos on the platform.
Here she is driving a loaded troller in a saree:
Taking the wheel of a Volvo bus:
And also a truck! What a rockstar!
Her videos have received a mixed response online. Some have praised her talent while others have questioned if a saree is the right attire while driving from a safety and comfort perspective.

If she is comfortable in a Saree……she can do anything. If women can carry ltrs of water on head with a small baby with one hand and a bag with other, this must have been smooth. So proud of Women !!

Our older generation feels comfortable in saree.. but younger generation made is an occassional wear.. women in saree can do agricultural activities, can bring water from KMs.. let us regard their hard work which is being ignored as Housewife..

It’s definitely not a comfortable dress to do things, instead of glorifying this the idea shd be to promote work friendly attire

We should feel proud that women in our country are coming forward in every sphere of life and proving their mettle. However, there are certain dress codes for certain professions. Driving a bus too should have one and she should follow it. Saree is not suitable here.
