Named ‘Train Ganesha,’ the pandal here attracts a steady stream of visitors in the lane opposite Anjaneyaswamy temple at Thaticheltapalem for the theme with which it has been made. The eco-friendly idol made with clay and natural colours by a group under the banner of Yuva Seva Foundation has a train in its background with several themes displayed all around to spread the message on preventing rail accidents. The idol was the creation of artist from Kolkata led by Sukumar Pal at a workshop set up at Dwarakanagar.
“A little negligence may cause a major disaster. Hence, everyone should be very careful while commuting by train,” Hariprasad of Yuva Seva Foundation told The Hindu.
During nine-days of observing the puja, the organisers are also telling the devotees to be careful and not carry inflammables while travelling in trains. They have put up placards asking people not to bribe railway staff and if they find any irregularity or suspicious object, they should alert the railway police immediately, avoid impersonation and travel with less luggage for more comfort.
