Train driver Preeti Kumari: 'Nothing is impossible in life'

Mumbai is one of the most congested cities in the world, so it is no wonder that out of its population of 16 million, more than seven million use the railways every day to get around.

The city's trains carry thousands of commuters at a time and are almost all driven by men. But bucking that trend is Preeti Kumari, who trained for a year and a half to become one of India's very few female train drivers.
