Caste no bar, help was their only motto

Caste no bar, help was their only motto

The youths coming from various background, caste, creed and religion did not worry over their background but engaged in rescue operation and helped the police and fire personnel to recover the bodies on the ill-fated tragic Saturday.

Unlike on some other occasions, none bothered about their caste, creed or religion. By 6.30 am, hundreds of youths had come to the spot to help in rescue operation voluntarily. There was no religion here, no colour and no disparity between poor and rich. All came forward to help their fellow mankind at the time of distress. “The youths were seen joining hands in the thick forest and showcased the communal harmony of the district which was fast evading,” said a senior citizen of Malavoor.

The Bajpe police who are guarding the site have been working round the clock for the past four days. Bajpe police station has 1 SI, 2 ASIs, 10 Head Constables, 21 PCs and 2 Women PCs. The police personnel who are on duty were seen having food on the road side on Tuesday.   

‘Singode belief’

In Tulu culture no auspicious programmes are held on the following day of Sankramana. The next day of Sankramana is called ‘Singode.’

It is believed that if any auspicious programmes are organised on that day, it will have some bad luck. Incidentally, Integrated Terminal at Bajpe was inaugurated on May 15 and it was ‘Singode.’
