The railway station at Yadgir is teeming with people these days. Most of the travellers are landless labourers and small farmers heading out in search of jobs with none available locally.
People from the district migrate to Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, or Goa. Some even go to Surat, Mehsana or Gandhinagar in Gujarat. While places such as Chikkamagaluru and Mangaluru attract migrants from here to work in plantations, people heading to most other destinations end up working in the construction industry.
Saibanna Borabanda, a resident of Borbanda near Gurmitkal, said that failure of

irrigation projects was one of the big reasons for migration. The project of filling tanks from the Bhima was still on papers, he said. Though there were more than 200 tanks in Gurmitkal alone, elected representatives had not taken steps to get them filled despite migration at large, he said.

BENGALURU: Sitting next to his flower vendor mother at Raichur railway station, Shantu, in his childhood, points to a train and asks her why people go to Bengaluru. The mother replies that villagers go there to earn more, but advises him to stick to his roots in the village, where the river Krishna flows.
Shantu grows up and the floods of 2009 leave his family devastated. Like many from his district, he takes the Basava Express, the train connecting Bagalkot and Mysuru via Bengaluru, and passes through many North Karnataka districts, on its way to the Garden City.Shantu, with a passion for painting, manages to get a job with the BBMP to become a wall painter. He draws the Virupaksha temple of

Hampi, power station of Shaktinagar in Raichur where he grew up, and tries to get over the identity crisis Bengaluru pushes him into.
Similar is the story of Basavanappa, who is in the city of dreams to save money and repay his debt in his village in Ballari. This is the theme of Basava Express, a Kannada play presented by Samprati Theatre which held its pre miere at Rangashankara last Thursday -it was a good attempt to study the sub ject of migration to cities in contempo rary India.
Writer Raghavendra Acharya, 26, a journalist and native of Raichur, along with director Basav Biradar, 35, a software engineer and native of Bijapur, describe Basava Express as a train of migration. "I have seen people from my dis trict losing ground after floods. The train charge to Bengaluru was around Rs 100 then and Bengaluru was the biggest destination. And it's not just floods, every drought season brings thousands of villagers, most of whom come as construction labourers. Some literates get on to Kannada call centres, work in malls or Coffee Day outlets. But they lose themselves in the metropolis. The train here is a metaphor of sorts. The play explores relationships between people, and between people and the city they inhabit," said Raghavendra.
"We have showcased that such a dilemma or identity crisis among the inhibited is also short-lived, and people go on with life as they don't have the option of a better life back home. The issue is not limited to domestic migration in the state. There could be somebody painting the Taj Mahal on a public wall. Or there could somebody doing the Qutab Minar," explains Basav.
Shantu, the young painter in the play , convinces his mother, who appears is his dream, that the road he chose is the right one. His mother tells him Bengaluru has hundreds of roads but wherever you go, you come back to the same spot. "These roads go nowhere," she points out. During the play, the paintings of Hampi and Shaktinagar power station gain life and discuss life in Bengaluru. "Is it true that Bengaluru is growing? I don't think so. It is getting shrunk amid all the tall buildings. Unlike Raichur, where the sun burns people, it is hiding behind mega structures here. Everybody is adjusting here. If somebody faces difficulty in counting the stars, they should come here. The sky here has shrunk amid buildings and you can count them in this limited space," the power station tells Hampi, which is still living in its past glory.
The play was performed by Sriharsha HS, Karthik Gowtham, Kiran Kumar, Akhila Srinivas and Sriharsha GN.The artwork was done by Mahantesh Doddamani, sound design by Subramanya Shastri, light work by Lekha Naidu and movement director is Sowmya Jaganmurthy.

The upcoming rail coach factory can use the cola as an alternative to phenyl and acid cleaners to clean their premises from the upcoming coca cola factory. It would be cheaper than most popular market brands..

After the revision of platform ticket prices from Rs 5 to Rs 10 per person, a rise in the minimum fare may be in the offing, say railway sources, a move that will bring more financial stress to frequent short-distance train travelers.
It has been seen in the past that the Ministry of Railways increases the minimum fares within months of raising platform ticket prices. Two years ago, the minimum fare was raised from Rs 2 to Rs 5 just two months after the platform ticket price was raised from Rs 3 to Rs 5.
