How a photo at Vandhe Bharat Express, forces a man to travel

Rajahmundry: As the newly-inaugurated Vandhe Bharat Express begins its journey from Vishakapatnam to Secunderabad, some might want to enter the train to take pictures. A viral video is here to remind us why that might not be a good idea.

A video posted by Hari Pasupuleti, a YouTuber in his HN motovlogs, shows how a person entered the Vandhe Bharat Express to click photographs and got stuck inside after the doors closed. The Express has automatic doors that close after the train departs a station.

Hari travels around the country and vlogs his journey. He was one of the passengers who travelled in the Vandhe Bharat Express after it was inaugurated. After he posted the video, it went viral. Soon after this, social media was flooded with memes about how one should be careful when traveling on the Vandhe Bharat Express.

The train has stoppages at four stations between Secunderabad. On 16 January, when the train stopped at Rajhamahendravaram for two minutes, a man entered one of the coaches to take photos. When he tried to get down when the train started, he couldn’t. The ticket collector who saw the man near the door informed him that the doors close automatically and he would have to wait till the next station, Vijayawada. According to passengers, there are no security guards deployed at Rajhamahendravaram station to monitor the rush but there are staff at Vijayawada station.

Speaking to the NewsMeter, Hari said, “Many people entered the train to take photos. An announcement was made before the doors closed and the people immediately got down. But this man was busy taking photos and did not know the doors close automatically. He was, however, not charged for travelling without a ticket.”

According to railway officials, announcements are made on the arrival and departure of the train at the stations. Passengers are requested to listen to the announcements and not enter the Vandhe Bharat Express without a ticket.
