As bizarre as it may sound, but in a crowded city like Dhaka where it is almost impossible to find a CNG, Uber drivers are the knights in shinny armors who save the day. Or so it happened for a certain BRAC student.
Afrida khondokar is a 3rd year student studying at BRAC university. She lives in Mirpur and thus everyday travelling to BRAC is a struggle for her. She tried taking the bus but the amount of eve teasing that happens in public busses was intolerable for her. So she started taking Uber. After taking the Uber to go to university for 2 weeks straight, she realized something surprising. The same driver takes her to university every day. The driver’s name was Shamol Kumar. He fell in love with her the moment he laid eyes on her and has been showing up to her house at the exact same time everyday. Like any other hormonal teenage women,Afrida too fell in love with her stalker Uber driver after he confessed his undying love for her. Needless to say that they didn’t live happily ever after. Afrida had to drop out of university 3months after getting married and now she sits at home and wonders if a PATHAO would have been the wiser choice for going to university
