according to his son-in-law Akshay Kumar. He’s still dogged by the fact that he once referred to Uber as “Boob-er” because it improved his dating prospects. Current and former employees say he can be empathetic when the mood strikes—or tyrannical when it doesn’t Kalanick loves fighting over a good idea which sometimes means admitting that his isn’t the best one “Toe-stepping” is one of Uber’s cultural values Uber pulled its self-driving cars off the road in San Francisco after the California Department of Motor Vehicles said they were operating illegally without an autonomous vehicle license ( Source: Reuters) Kalanick is trying to be a better listener He met with more than 100 of Uber’s female employees at a meeting last week meant to address the morale crisis that followed the former software engineer’s blog post Kalanick sounded some of the right notes standing in front of the crowd “There are people in this room who have experienced things that are incredibly unjust” he said according to a recording obtained by Buzzfeed “I empathize with you but I can never fully understand and I get that I want to root out the injustice I want to get at the people who are making this place a bad place and you have my commitment to make that happen and I know it doesn’t end there” Like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg before him Kalanick is trying to learn how to empathize and communicate But Kalanick at 40 compared with 32-year-old Zuckerberg is having to change his ways later in life and he’s often reluctant to tread too far from his intuitions Even when Kalanick tries to empathize in his own way—which often means jumping into a dialectical argument of sorts— his temper can occasionally flare In Kamel’s car for example Kalanick is seemingly at ease as the ride ends and his friends hop out of the car “You have a good one” says the driver Kalanick says with an air of familiarity “Good to see you man” Kamel replies “Good to see you too” Also Read:Alphabet’s Waymo files lawsuit against Uber for self-driving car theft Kalanick thinks the ride is over But having the CEO in his car is an opportunity Kamel

reduce competition and should be good for Kamel Then Kamel says what every driver has been dying to tell Kalanick: “You’re raising the standards and you’re dropping the prices” Kalanick: “We’re not dropping the prices on black” Kamel: “But in general the whole price is—” Kalanick: “We have to; we have competitors; otherwise we’d go out of business” Kamel: “Competitors Man you had the business model in your hands You could have the prices you want but you choose to buy everybody a ride” Kalanick: “No no no You misunderstand me We started high-end We didn’t go low-end because we wanted to We went low-end because we had to because we’d be out of business” Kalanick turned Uber into a global endeavor that operates in more than 400 cities (Image for representation Source: Reuters) Kamel: “What Lyft It’s a piece of cake right there” Kalanick: “It seems like a piece of cake because I’ve beaten them But if I didn’t do the things I did we would have been beaten I promise” The two bat that idea around and Kamel brings the conversation back to his losses Kamel: “But people are not trusting you anymore … I lost $97000 because of you I’m bankrupt because of you Yes yes yes You keep changing every day You keep changing every day” Kalanick: “Hold on a second what have I changed about Black What have I changed” Watch all our videos from Express Technology Kamel: “You changed the whole business You dropped the prices” Kalanick: “On black” Kamel: “Yes you did” Kalanick begins to lose his temper “Bullshit” he says Kamel: “We started with $20” Kalanick: “Bullshit” Also Read: Uber

searching for someone But he’s stopped short in his tracks; a young girl holdsup a bunch of roses — some single some as bunch — saying “Bhaiya gulaab le lo achhe gulab le lo (Please buy a rose buy a

on the blue line was recently renamed Wave Metro Station as part of a 10-year deal with DMRC that gives Wave Infrastructure exclusive renaming and marketing rights To the four underage girls selling roses at the gate Number 2exit this development hardly meant anything For them this will always be sector ‘attara’ metro station Years after the metro station first opened to the public the line demarcating the rich and those struggling to get by have become much clearer Commuters taking the gate Number 1exit would be swept away by a sea of humanity struggling to find their footing in the narrow footpath already half-encroached by hawkers The smell of open gutters few overflowing on to the streets and the sight of tiny mounds of garbage strewn everywhere act as cues for someone trying to find Atta Market The market snakes out to maze-likelanes where buildings cramped for space form a centipede of bricks and mortar Just across the road sounds from the chaotic market setting seem muted Here the roads are wider clean and have house top clothing brands pubs and restaurants on both sides From the eyes of an outsider the metro station had unwittingly separated the flea market and the upscale establishments “…he that dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose” wrote British poet Anne Bronte in ‘The Narrow Way’ Words from this 19th century poet still hold true today for the mother of the three underage girls trying to eke out a living by selling roses on the trendier side of sector-18 metro As the crowd swells at the metro station seven-year-old Sajda and her two elder sisters Shazia 13 and Sahiba 10 duck past the rush hour crowd inside gate Number 2towards the escalators Amid the flock of heads bobbing up the steps wearing layers of winter clothing it’s hard to miss the bright blooming bundle of roses in their hands The sisters quickly scan the crowd before they approach couples exiting the station Sahiba cajoles charms and pleads a man to buy flowers for his lady loveand her persistence pays off as the man relents She manages to sell four roses Shazia’s nimble fingers help her sister secure the flowers with a ribbon-knot before handing them over While the duo target those near the ticket counter Sajda and her cousin Mumtaz tail commuters outside the station Dressed in bright salwar-kameez and sporting long braided hair their eyes dart back and forth in search of customers Noticing a group of college students’ exit Mumtaz rushes to meet them tugging the bag of a teenager from behind She sells six roses each for Rs 20 before heading towards her aunt to replenish her stock Keeping an eye on the kids from a distance is their mother who sits on the steps with bundles of roses spread in front of her She is in-charge of the inventory and sales With no education and an alternative source of income in the family she says it was Sahiba and her cousin Rani 12 who pitched the idea of procuring flowers from the wholesale market and selling them at the metro station Her extended family of close to 20 all residents of sector-37 source the roses from the neighbouring Ghazipur Mandi and disperse into small groups in and around Noida at various metro stations traffic signals and malls A bundle of 20 roses can cost anywhere between Rs 200-350 depending on the season and demand As the price fluctuates they try to adjust their rates and sell each rose for Rs 10-20 But when the price shoots above Rs 400 per bundle they are in a fix The mother of three who refused to give her name said “It is a big gamble but this gamble has become a part and parcel of my life now for the past three years” Selling flowers is not just a source of income that would put food on the table for her family every day The thought of marrying off her two elder daughters pushes her to go through this ordeal every day “The two older daughters are at a perilous age it’s them I’m mostly worried about Even when they try to make their way through the crowd to sell flowers I’m worried that they are not manhandled or touched inappropriately” she said It’s a mammoth task to save money for daughters’ marriages she said and only if they start early they can
