Vishwamanava Express', and story behind the name DH News Service, Bengaluru, May 27 2017, 2:06 IST
The South Western Railway has named the newly introduced Hubballi-Mysuru train (number 17325/17326) that runs via Bengaluru as ‘Vishwamanava Express’.
The name was suggested by journalist Krishna Prasad, who explained the christening of the train in his blog. “(Mysuru MP) Pratap Simha had called for suggestions. His own picks were Kapila Express (after the river which supplies much of Mysuru’s drinking water), Nalwadi Express (after Maharaja Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar), and Ambari Express (after Dasara motif),” he

wrote.
Though they considered the name ‘Mysore Mallige Express’, they abandoned it “because some punster might call it ‘Mysore Mellage’ if the train runs late”.
“Eventually, we went literary and zeroed in on ‘Vishwa Manava Express’,” Prasad wrote.
“Vishwa Manava’ was the idea espoused by Kuvempu which he explains in an essay: “Every child, at birth, is the universal man. But, as it grows, we turn it into a ‘petty man’ (through caste, creed, religion and race). It should be the function of education to turn it into the original ‘universal man’.”
The South Western Railway has decided to temporarily augment with one second class sleeper coach for train no. 82653 Yeshwantpur-Jaipur Suvidha Weekly Express with effect from June 22 to September 21 and train no. 82654 Jaipur-Yeshwantpur Suvidha Weekly Express with effect from June 24 to September 23.
Train no. 82653/82654 Yeshwantpur-Jaipur-Yeshwantpur Suvidha Weekly Express will have the revised composition of two AC 2-tier coaches, four AC 3-tier coaches, 10 second class sleeper coaches, one pantry car and two luggage-cum-brake van with generator.
South Western Railway will also permanently augment with one AC-3 tier coach for Train No. 17323 Hubballi–Varanasi Weekly Express with effect from June 2 and 17323 Varanasi-Hubballi Weekly Express with effect from June 4.
Train No. 17323/17324 Hubballi–Varanasi–Hubballi Weekly Express will have the revised composition of one AC 2-tier coach, two AC 3-tier coaches, six second class sleeper coaches, six general Second class coaches, two second class luggage-cum-brake van with disabled friendly compartment.

on Wednesday lists the Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna railway station (Bengaluru City) as the tenth cleanest station in the country. South Western Railway Zone, including Bengaluru, Hubballi and Mysuru divisions, obtained the 6th rank out of 16 railway zones.
The Minister released the top 10 positions in different categories of a Third Party Audit on station cleanliness carried out by Quality Council of India at 75 A1 stations and 332 A category stations.
Stations which have annual earnings of more than Rs 60 crore fall under A1 while stations, which have annual earnings between Rs 8 and Rs 60 crore fall under A category.
Bengaluru held the 14th position in a similar survey covering the same number of stations last year.
“It has leapt forward by four places and entered the coveted top 10 list. This is a good news for Bengaluru Railway Division officials,” said a top railway official here.
The SWR Zone though has dropped by four places, going from holding the second rank to the sixth rank this year.
Beas in Punjab is the cleanest station among all 332 A stations. None of the stations in Karnataka has made it to the top 10 in the ‘A category’.
It is great going for Andhra Pradesh as Visakhapatnam has bagged the No. 1 slot and Vijayawada has obtained the number 4 rank in A1 category while Warangal has bagged the No.8 slot among A stations. Telangana too has excelled with Secunderabad and Khammam getting the second rank respectively in A1 and A rankings. It has been a rocket leap for Khammam which was ranked 285 in A category last year. South East Central Zone has bagged the No.1 Zonal ranking.

South Western Railway’s move reduces journey time by just 10 minutes
The South Western Railway’s decision to divert Train No. 16515 Yeshwantpur-Karwar tri-weekly express via Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola instead of Tumakuru and Arsikere reduces journey time by just 10 minutes. At the same time, its decision to revise the departure timing of Train No. 16575 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Gomateshwara Express from 7.50 a.m. to 7.10 a.m. would extend journey time by 40 minutes.
The SWR on Saturday announced the diversion of Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express via the shortest route with effect from June 2 from

Yeshwantpur and June 3 from Karwar. Instead of the 7 a.m. departure, the train departs from Yeshwantpur at 7.10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to reach Mangaluru Junction at the existing time of 5.40 p.m. It takes 1.48 hours to traverse 19 km between Bantwal and Mangaluru Junction.
The departure timing of Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Gomateshwara Express has been revised to match the timing of Train No. 16515, where Gomateshwara Express is made to leave Yeshwantpur at 7.10 a.m. to reach Mangaluru Junction at the existing arrival time of 5.30 p.m. (10.20 hours).
However, the diversion speeds up the return journey of Train No. 16516 Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express.
The train leaves Mangaluru Junction at 11.30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays instead of 11 a.m., to reach Yeshwantpur at 8.30 p.m. instead of 10 p.m.
Similarly, there is no change in the departure and arrival timing of Train No. 16576 from Mangaluru Junction and Yeshwantpur (11.30 a.m. and 8.30 p.m.) respectively. There is no change in days of service and timing of Tain No. 16515/165116 between Mangaluru Junction and Karwar.
Prolonged wait
Sources in SWR pointed out that the journey time of Karwar-Yeshwantpur Express has been reduced by 1.30 hours with the diversion. The trains, both Yeshwantpur-Karwar Express and Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Express, have to wait for a long time to enter Mangaluru Junction Station, which comes under southern railways thereby, lengthening the journey hours. If the southern railways agrees to receive the trains early, the journey hours would be reduced, sources added.
Vinay Kumar, member of SWR’s Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee, regretted that the diversion did not reduce journey hours and lamented that the zone is unresponsive to commuters’ needs.

Observers believe that by diverting the Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly Express, South Western Railway is attempting to save on one train, since it was bound to run the Bengaluru-Mangaluru day express daily as announced by the then Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.
Railways introduced the Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur service as a tri-weekly from April 9 and by diverting Karwar tri-weekly Express on the new route, would claim six-days a week service between Bengaluru-Mangaluru, they added.

lowly but steadily, the suburban rail system is materialising around Bengaluru. An MoU signed between the State government and the Ministry of Railways in January this year has lent a slight push to the project which had long been in cold storage.
The work has begun on three components of the DPR (Detailed Project Report) prepared by the RITES in 2013. These are: 1- Replacing passenger trains by Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit (MEMU) rakes, 2- Facility upgradation at Banaswadi station for maintenance of MEMU at a cost of Rs. 25 crore, and, 3- Upgradation of signaling on 12 km distance between K. R. Puram and Whitefield at a cost of Rs. 8 crore.
According
...
more...
to the MoU, the State government and the Ministry of Railways will each contribute 20% of the cost, while another 60% will be raised through loans by a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). All operational losses on the suburban rail would be borne by the State government.
Electrification
Progress can be seen in other spheres too. Nearly 60% work on doubling of track between Yelahanka and Doddaballpur is over and the remaining work is likely to be completed by the end of the current year. The electrification work on Yeshwanthapur-Tumkur and Yeshwanthapur-Hosur too has started with the Ministry of railways having allocated of Rs. 60 crore.
Supportive infrastructure is coming up through other projects too. The foundation for a third rail terminal in the City has been laid at Baiyappanahalli in the eastern fringes by the Railways in January this year. It is likely to take off some pressure from the KSR Bengaluru City Station and free considerable space for operation of the suburban trains. The Railways have sanctioned Rs. 125 crore for the purpose and Rs. 20 crore has been allocated. It should be partly operational within six to nine months. With the new Nelamangala-Hassan line becoming operational last month, towns like Kunigal too have emerged on the map. The line has as many as six Trains currently running on the route.
Connecting the Core
Introduction of around 25 local trains in recent years now connect Bengaluru’s core with smaller district towns and carry over two lakh passengers to and from these destinations every day. Seven of these trains were introduced following constant pressure from daily commuters. Another seven or eight of the trains are long-distance trains and pass through and provide connectivity to Bangarapet, yet another traffic generating destination for Bengaluru. Other trains connect towns like Hosur, Chikkaballapur, Kolar, Tumkur and Hindupur which contribute floating population to the city. . A designed and formal network is likely to cater to at least 40% of the daily trips made by citizens in and around the city.
It is more than five years since demand has been raised for a Commuter Rail System (CRS) around Bengaluru from several people’s forum. The feasibility report prepared by the RITES in collaboration with the Centre for Infrastructure, Sustainable Transport and Urban Planning (CISTUP) of the India Institute of Science in 2013 had been gathering dust since then. The Government of Karnataka had not taken up the matter with the Railway Board thereafter, although there have been pleas to push the proposal towards realization.
Piecemeal
Bengaluru currently has 68 lakh private vehicles and 6,500 public buses. Another one million vehicles enter, leave and pass through the city every day from outlying destinations. The RTOs are registering 3500 new vehicles every day. Given these numbers and the issues like pollutants, casualties and fatalities, and traffic gridlocks, the role of the CRS in easing the rigours of daily life for travelling public will be crucial. However, the local trains did not get introduced as part of a cogent strategy.

The 12-year-old demand at last came true and the service is expected to start from May 13
A 12-year dream of employees in the garment & manufacturing industries and unorganised sector workers for an express train between Bengaluru and Mysuru will be a reality later this month. The new train is likely to be inaugurated on May 13.
The dream comes true through a shadow path train of Chamundi Express which will connect Hubbali and Mysuru via Tumakuru and Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) Bengaluru City Station.

train has been conceived to provide more luxury to the workers with 18+2 stateof-the-art, swanky coaches, and called Deen Dayalu coaches, specially meant for general class compartments. The up and down trains will run between Hubbali and Mysuru South (Ashokapuram Railway Station) and are expected halt for 15 minutes at Mysuru Railway station for passengers.
The train that starts from Hubbali reaches Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) Bengaluru City Station via Tumakuru route at 5.45 pm, which later leaves for Mysuru at 5.50 pm, reaching there at 8.40 pm. The Mysuru-Hubbali train will leave Mysuru at 6 am, KSR Bengaluru Station at 8.45 am and leave for Hubbali at 8.50 am. The schedule of the train will ease the working passengers to commute conveniently to reach their workplaces in Bengaluru on time. The allotment of project was pending before the ministry for the last 12 years and was approved by the railway board only last year. Prathap Simha, member of Parliament of Mysuru-Kodagu constituency on Monday had taken to Twitter demanding that railway minister Suresh Prabhu look into the issue. Addressing his tweet to Prabhu, Simha said: “Sir, u responded 2 Odisha CM in 3 mins. But my proposal was approved by railway board in last july, still waiting 4 d rakes! Alas!“ Simha told Bangalore Mirror, “I have already received a positive response from the minister (railways minister Suresh Prabhu). The trains will run between these two cities within this month. But I am trying to inaugurate it before May 13. If everything goes as per plan, the passengers may commute before the first half of this month.“
Railway activist Sanjeev Dharmannavar told this paper, “This train is going to help reduce traffic especially between Bidadi and Tumakuru for those labourers working in unorganised sector. During the morning hours, there were no trains other than Intercity and Janshathabdi. So this will help the public.“
Speaking about the significance of the train schedule, he said, “Especially, the train timings are made sensibly. There were already two trains from Bengaluru running towards Mysuru at 6.15 pm and 6.45 pm, which were always overcrowded. But now people have the choice at 5.50 pm which will help them to commute and it will eventually reduce the congestion in trains.“

"I am trying to inaugurate it before May 13." --- above post. ashokapuram is just a nearby station to MYS right, so they would have no issues. or for inaugural it maybe MYS, later regular run ashokapuram.
