Confident that ‘we can change the way we travel’, Synergians — a team of professionals — will travel in the Ernakulam-Shornur passenger train on February 1, through the way that Soumya, who was raped and murdered, travelled on that fateful night on the train.
They will begin their journey from Ernakulam and travel up to the Vallathol Nagar railway station near where she was found dead. En route, they will speak with passengers on passenger rights and the standards that service providers must ensure. Students of the Institute of Management and Technology, Alappuzha too will join Synergians in the journey.
The team has been working for the enactment of passenger rights and to declare June 7 as International Passenger Rights Day. The highlight will be the right of each individual to travel safely and comfortably.
