Meet this 17-yr-old 'Bullet Girl' from Kottayam
Kottayam: Riding a bullet, travelling and experiencing a dream life is often beyond the reach of most teenagers. In the case of a girl, it is nearly impossible in the social circle we grew up in. However, Diya Joseph, a 17-year-old girl hailing from Kottayam, can repair Bullet bikes professionally.
Diya grew up watching her father, who is a motor mechanic, working on modern types of machinery, and fell in love with it instantly. Now she helps her father in his work and has a received appreciation to bolster her confidence in the field.
Diya started learning the trade of repairing Bullet from her father Joseph Dominic two years ago. Currently, she manages to do general services and oil change for the clients who arrives at her father’s workshop.
Apart from her interest in the mechanic sector, she is also a very good student and secured 97 percent mark in Plus Two examination. Even though she is busy preparing for the engineering and NEET examination, she still finds time to repair at least three Bullets a day.
She said that her father advised her to learn and drive the Bullet so that she could become a good mechanic one day. Joseph said that girls too have a fantastic future in the field since they have a better grasping power as well as patience.
Even though Diya does works that could earn her around Rs 2000 per day, she always refuses to accept the money that her father offers. Instead, she wants to get the driving license and then go for a ride in the Thunderbolt Bullet her father bought for her. Diya aims to be an Automobile Engineer and hopes to keep her job of repairing Bullet along with it.
