Rajashekar G Masali is a legal adviser at the Mandya deputy commissioner's office and visits the Mysuru railway station every week with a broom, mop and cleaning agent. In tow are 10 pourakarmikas. They diligently scrub and clean Chamundi Express train's wash basins, toilets and windowpanes of its coaches.Masali was pained by the state of the toilets on this train, which he takes to travel to Mandya and Bengaluru regularly on work. A resident of Mysuru's Vivekananda Nagar, Masali's impression about the lack of train's upkeep was confirmed by a conversation be tween two passengers, who spoke of an unbearable foul smell from the loos.
On July 2, Masali -who has authored six law books -took up the cleaning operation of

the train at the Mysuru station. After obtaining approval from divisional railway manager Atul Gupta and the carriage depot officer of the South Western Railway's Mysuru division, Masali hired ten pourakarmikas to help him in the campaign.
“We took up the cleaning operation twice a week -Tuesdays and Sundays.It starts around 9.30pm and ends by 4am the next day . We manage to clean all the toilets, wash basins, windowpanes in all the carriages of the train,“ he said.
To take his campaign to the next level, Masali prepared a questionnaire on his initiative and distributed it among passengers for a feedback. From about 1,000 replies, Masali made a personal call to 85 frequent passengers to join his campaign. “We've decided to create awareness on cleanliness among cotravellers,“he said.

Though i have seen news reports about some organisation or group of individuals doing this on some occassions like Gandhi Jayanthi etc. this is the first time i am coming across a news that says about an individual with a group of cleaning staff visiting a railway station at regular intervals to clean trains. It is no wonder that MYS is one of the cleanest stations in the Country. Hats Off!!

Morning Accident Leaves Citizens Shocked | Body Was Removed After Second Train Ran Over It
Mysuru: Prema B was always in a hurry . Every morning, she would rush on to the platform just before the 7.25am 56204 Mysuru-Chamarajanagar train chugged into the Chamarajapuram station.
On Tuesday, she came under the train at the manned level crossing gate. Prema tried to cross the railway gate before the train from Mysuru came in, but was crushed her to death. The train dragged her along, and parts of her body were strewn across the rail

tracks.
Prema, who worked as an attendant at the Chamarajanagar SP's office, was a resident of Bogadi in Mysuru.
The tragedy didn't end there. As shocked passengers gathered on the platform and waited for the railway authorities, Prema's mutilated body lay in the middle of the tracks for more than an hour.
A plea by her agonized family members and onlookers to remove the severed parts before the next train came in went unheard, as the authorities said certain processes had to be followed. Around 8.50am, the Mysuru-bound train from Chamarajanagar chugged out of the station, further mutilating the body .
Prema's son-in-law Sunil GM said the body was taken off the track well after 9am. A railway official admitted there was a delay in lifting the body and another train had run over the body, and that her limbs and severed parts were strewn all over the track.
Mysuru Railway Police finally shifted the body to the mortuary and handed it over to the family after an autopsy.

Agree. Very slow response by authorities. Same happened in Chennai a few days back. The lady who got murdered at Nungambakkam Station, lied dead for hours on the platform. Sad but true.
