Taking a cue from Prime Minister’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, students of Mithibai college have adopted Vile Parle station and will keep it clean. Staff members of the college will also be part of the cleanliness drives.
It was principal Dr Dilip Kamat who first thought about adopting the station in April this year. He then pitched the idea to the management of the college who approved of the decision. Within a week, the railways too granted permission to go ahead with the cleanliness drive in which the railway staff will help them.
5,00o students part of the initiative When Dr Kamat spoke to the students about the initiative, 500 of them enrolled themselves in a day. The number of students who are a part of this initiative is now around 5,000. College

students routinely clean the station.
Dr Kamat now wants to launch more initiatives like these. Speaking to iamin, he said that he wants to adopt Skywalk at Vile Parle (W) which is used by the students studying in the college. He plans to approach the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to ask for permission to keep it clean.
"When I spoke to the students about the initiative, they responded positively. We are looking to take on more such projects. Student participation in social causes is important. We will seek permission from the BMC to maintain the skywalk and beautify it,” Dr Kamat explained. 
College will give certificates to students for participating in the initiative and assured that it will continue for a long time.

The pictograms, that have appeared on trains in the popular tourist destination of Mount Rigi in the Swiss Alps, instruct users to sit on toilet seats rather than to squat on them.
Fed up with having to clean up messes in the public toilets, a Swiss railway company has come up with a series of graphic illustrations for visitors from Asia and the Middle East to instruct them how to sit on a toilet seat.
The pictograms, that have appeared on trains in the popular tourist destination of Mount Rigi in the Swiss Alps, instruct users to sit on toilet seats rather than to squat on them and to discard used toilet paper in the lavatory and not in the waste bin.
“It

happens that guests mount the toilet seats to do their business – and sometimes they don’t know where to put the toilet paper,” said Roger Joss, director of marketing for the Mount Rigi railway at Lake Lucerne in central Switzerland.
The Swiss tourist board has also accused foreign tourists of defecating in the shower.“Tourists from the Gulf region or Asian countries are not very aware of our way of living. It’s happened that people relieve themselves in the shower rather than in the toilet,” Marcel Furer, head of the regional tourist office, was quoted as saying by the Daily Express.
Switzerland, which is famous for its cleanliness, is doing its best to teach new visitors Western toilet etiquette. Switzerland is not the only country cracking down on the issue.
In March last year, Lloyds Bank’s Old Broad Street office in central London also put up instructions telling foreign staff how to use the loo, with details such as ‘sit on the toilet – do not stand on it’, and ‘please flush it with your hand and not your foot’.

Actually in my experience only people from SC,China,Burma,Indonesia and other similar countries squat on toilet seats. Maybe few poor arabs and africans too. Developed asian countries like Japan,ROK,Singapore etc have long adapted to western style toilets.

Aluva: Used plastic bottles lying on platforms and tracks are one of the many disturbing scenes that one has to encounter at railway stations across the country. But the railway station in Aluva offers a different picture -- one that is pleasant and colourful -- as waste bottles are made flower pots here.
The innovative method of recycling plastic bottles was launched on the Environment Day last year. As part of the programme, the used water bottles lying on the station are collected and used as pots for growing ornamental plants.
The bottles, painted in yellow and white, hang on the water pipes at the station. The railway station officials said that with the installation of the pots, the tendency to cross the tracks has diminished.

DHANBAD: Bharat Coking Coal (BCCL) has started damage control measures to save the Katras-Chandrapura railway tracks under South Eastern Railway from underground fire following a missive from the Directorate General of Mines and Safety (DGMS).
The company, which intensified its protection measures on Friday, has resorted to nitrogen foaming to douse the fire and is also digging up trenches to stop the spread of flames.
"While the increased quantity of nitrogen will help surface areas to release heat energy for cooling the affected areas, trench cutting and filling up of tunnels or potholes will detach the ignited coal from the unaffected rocks," said BCCL general manager (safety) Surendra Singh on Saturday.

of Mining and Fuel Research, inspected Govindpur south siding, where a BCCL coal mine is located, on July 2.
"Carbon-dioxide, CO and methane are among gases that are formed due to coal distillation. Nitrogen and oxygen in the air react with the gases to produce underground fire. Though measures to douse the fire were continuing for the past two months, we have increased the quantity of nitrogen foaming across the affected zone," Singh said.

SALEM: A major rail accident was averted in Tamil Nadu on Sunday morning thanks to the presence of mind of the loco pilots of two trains that came on the same track from opposite directions. The incident happened at Uthukuli station in Tiruppur district at 7.30am.
Railway officials said following a technical snag, tracks had to be clamped manually to align the train movements. "However, when a pointsman set the clamping of the tracks, he did it wrongly on the reverse direction, due to which No 12680-Coimbatore Chennai Intercity Express train leaving Uthukuli and No 17230 Hyderabad-Trivandrum Sabari Express train coming towards Uthukuli arrived on the same track," they said. The loco pilots stopped their trains at a safe distance, thus averting a possible head on collision, they added.

It was not just bizarre statements that the Mumbai Mayor Snehal Ambekar made regarding the recent floods that hit the city after two continuous days of rain. She has gone ahead to ask the railway authority to submit a detailed report about the clean-up carried out in pre-monsoon season.
Also read: Railways responsible for floods, says Mumbai mayor Snehal Ambeka
"We have asked them to table a detailed report on the cleanup operation conducted before monsoons along the three railway lines. This will help the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in pinpointing faults," said Ambekar.
