Western Railways has come with a new idea to create awareness amongst the passengers who attempt trespassing on railway tracks. This unique idea includes the god of death Yamraj who is seen carrying people on his shoulder whoever tries to cross unmanned tracks.
Yamraj to the rescue
Despite providing a railway bridge to reach from one platform to the other, people in Mumbai are always in a hurry to reach their destination and try to leap across the tracks.
As per the data collected from June, more than 700 people have died due to trespassing over the railway tracks. The total death caused due to trespassing accounted for 19,781 deaths across the suburban system. However, the rate of death is steadily declining over the years.
This Yamraj ji saves lives. He catches people who are endangering their lives by trespassing the railway tracks, but to save them. This Yamraj picks people to release them safely. Please do NOT cross tracks, it's dangerous. pic.twitter.com/PT81eYVajL

Yama tries to stop people from walking near the tracks. “If you cross the track in an unauthorized way, Yamraj will be standing in front of you,” the Ministry of Railways warned.

It's time to change our opinion about Yamraj ? This modern Yamraj as you can see is saving lives and by that I mean he isn't letting anyone cross the railway track and warning them about their lives and safety rules as well ?
What a unique way Western Railway. pic.twitter.com/MMqf7yqkeS
