For those living in metropolitan cities, the question wouldn’t seem too astounding. But for a small town like Thodupuzha in Kerala, it is indeed something unheard of.

In fact, it is quite unlikely that one would find women waiters in bars across the country, let alone Kerala.

“Women are working in every sector, and there is no room for taboos,” Jilmon George, who is the managing director of the hotel, told The Times of India.

Adding that the facility plans to recruit more women in the coming days, Jilmon also stated that the women employees feel empowered and work in a safe environment where they don’t face any harassment from the customers.
