While Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious bullet train project is facing farmers’ resistance in Maharashtra, it has already started running in his political rival Mamata Banerjee’s state West Bengal.
Yes! You read that right. A bullet train is running in the streets of Kolkata. The only difference is that it’s not an actual one but a replica of the high-speed train.
A video shared by news agency ANI shows a replica of bullet train running at a Durga Puja pandal on Kolkata's College Street.
The nine-day Durga Puja festival is celebrated with much fervour all across the country. However, Durga Puja holds a great significance for the people in West Bengal and the state holds one of the best pujas in the country. Not just that, you will see the most unique and creative Durga Puja pandals in West Bengal.
In the posh Salt Lake area, the organisers have set up a Yunnan-themed pandal, replete with dragon motifs, lanterns and a replica of Hulu (Chinese bottle gourd).
