Lucknow Woman, In Burqa, Delivers Goods On Foot With Swiggy Bag



The woman said her bag was torn due to which she bought the Swiggy bag.


A burqa-clad woman, who simply goes by the name Rizwana, is the newest sensation on social media as she delivers disposable goods in a Swiggy delivery bag on foot. She comes from a poor family and lives in a one-room house in the Janata Nagri Colony on Jagatnarayan Road in Lucknow, according to sources.

She doesn’t work for Swiggy, the online food delivery chain, and simply bought the bag, with the brand name, for delivering disposable goods. She said her bag was torn due to which she decided to purchase the Swiggy bag.

“I sell disposable cutlery, visiting door-to-door and local shops. I used to carry the items in a bag which got damaged. Then I purchased this ‘Swiggy’ bag for Rs 50,” Rizwana told news agency ANI.

Her husband, who used to drive a rickshaw, left her three years ago. Rizwana is a mother of four and had her eldest daughter married two years ago.

Now, Rizwana has the sole responsibility to earn a living for herself and three other children — Bushra (19 years), Nashra (7 years), and her son Mohammad Yasin.

Speaking to ANI, Rizwana said it was very important for her to work as she wants her children to study.

“I recently got my younger daughter admitted to a school, and will get my son admitted next year. Along with the delivery work, I also work as a domestic help in a bid to make more earnings. I walk about 6-7 km, but my total savings at the end of any given day at work is only about Rs 60-70,” she said.
