Wouldnt provide an auto- Taking majestic bound bus (304, 319C and many others with board as Kempegowda bus stand/Majestic/KBS) is a better option as trains arent frequent at that time

Even 500BC,500N go towards banashankari and even plenty of private bus operators operate bus up to banashankari but I don't recommend using the private buses as they put very loud music which is very disturbing and use the private bus as last option if there are no BMTC buses available.

For going to majestic it is better to buy an unreserved ticket and board a MEMU/passenger or an UR coach of express train as it is very cheap and faster option.

Jan 12 2017 (15:41)   Ernakulam passenger train turns saviour for 73-yr-old trapped inside burning house!

Leelavathy, who is partially blind due to old age, was alone in her single-room house when the mishap occurred.
Guruvayur: This may sound a little bit odd, but if the Ernakulam passenger train had not passed through 73-year-old Leelavathy’s house at that hour of the night, she should have burned to ashes by now in the fire that engulfed her house on Tuesday.     Leelavathy, who is partially blind due to old age, was alone in her single-room house when the mishap occurred after 10.30 pm. Her grandson Vishnu had gone out with his friends at the time of the incident.
fire reportedly spread from a candle which was lit in the kitchen. Since Leelavathy was bedridden, she could not get up from the cot. Though she screamed out loudly, none could hear it.
It was at this time the Ernakulam passenger train passed through the area. Seeing the house catching fire, loco pilot A N Unni blow the horn repeatedly. Smelling something amiss, Soman who was living on the other side of the track, came out of his house and saw Leelavathy’s house being swallowed by flames.
Without a second thought, Soman rushed to rescue the woman despite him suffering burns while attempting to bring her out safely. If the loco pilot had not blown the horn from a distance, Soman would have had to wait for the train to pass. However, the alertness of the loco pilot helped him to cross the track without wasting time.
By the time, Soman entered the house, many more people joined the rescue mission. Leelavathy was taken to the medical college hospital on Wednesday morning.
The Fire and Rescue service from Guruvayur reached the spot and doused the fire. However, Vishnu’s 10th class books and uniform were gutted in the fire.   
Leelavathy lives with her daughter Radhika and her three children in the single room house. Radhika along with the two of the kids had gone to visit one of her relatives the other day. The local CPM-DYFI activists have started to rebuild the house for the family.

Jan 10 2017 (07:48)   The romance of day train journeys

rdb*^   124962 news posts

Living in Bangalore and with family in Chennai, the Bangalore-Chennai trip I do often, but usually by the Shatabdi. Recently, a last-minute programme during Christmas had me doing the onward by bus and return by the Brindavan Express.
I may have done this journey during my college days, but have forgotten it in the annals of time and upgraded train journeys and discounted flights, so was in for a rude shock. I had pictured the second class sitting as the one with the usual compartment layout, but with a luggage rack above instead of the berths; I was taken aback at the suburban train layout. And was soon in for a still bigger shock when I saw that a reserved compartment held
no such pretensions as people got in at every station and occupied every standing and sitting position.
Squished between the open window (thank god for a window seat) and a rather corpulently endowed lady on the other, I had little wiggle room for comfort. A barely broad enough and thinly cushioned seat was to hold three people but held four. Bag and baggage liberally occupied the one-foot leg space between my seat and the one opposite, hung from hooks and the narrow luggage rack above and squeezed into every nook and cranny available. All in all it was cosy, euphemistically speaking.
But once I looked beyond the discomfort, I started taking in the cacophony of life around me — pulsating, animated, and effervescent This was something one would never find in the almost sterile cocoons of the air-conditioned Shatabdis.
The idli-vadai-pongal sellers reminded people the train had no pantry car. The leaf and paper wrapped packages of the south Indian staple breakfast did look more appetising than the affectations of an English breakfast with plastic-wrapped slices of bread-butter-jam served in the Shatabdi.
The jamboree started in right earnest an hour into the ride. Roasted groundnut- sellers raised the octave in sync with hot ginger cardamom tea-sellers. The children’s books-colouring books-moral story books-number books seller, who intoned his wares in the same order and tune every time, had parents perking in interest; the children preferred the nodding doggies and ingenuously put together plastic helicopter drones. Mobile holder-stands, earphones, chargers in many hues and shapes added to the melee.
The visually challenged singer-duo was not far behind. Their repertoire was truly eclectic, and they effortlessly moved from Hindi to Tamil to Kannada. A single clap, a defiant stare and a synchronised thrust of a bony hip and outstretched hand that demanded attention and remuneration had people scrambling for the scarce loose change in the time of demonetisation.
Somebody brought in shallots. Why would someone buy shallots on a train? One lady thought it was a good idea, and so did the couple with three kids in tow. Shallots were followed by green cooking bananas. The combination, I must admit, is mouth-wateringly appetising; guess the ones who bought it thought so too.
Once again, I was flummoxed over why someone would need to buy purple kanakambaram (firecracker flower) in the train. Why ever not, seems to be the repartee. Traditional South Indian ladies do love flowers in their hair.
At Rs. 150, not only could I travel from Chennai to Bangalore, I wasn’t bored for a second. There was drama, entertainment, music all packed in a seven-hour (yes, the train is invariably late) capsule.
And it has done so for 53 years now, introduced in 1964 as the first inter-city express on the Southern Railway.
I guess the Brindavan is going to feature more in my travels. Trains, especially the day journeys, are alluring: they pack in so much more than just getting one from point A to point B. It’s the epitome of travel romance. And next up, a day bus journey.

Not Goddess Saraswati. Devi Mookambika is actually an incarnation of Devi Adi Parasakthi who has supposedly created the universe
