After failing to muster enough number of tourists for the maiden tour of December 22, of Heritage Palace on wheels, the management of RTDC has started making intensive efforts for booking of passengers for December 29 tour, which is now being called as the first trip. However, on the website when one scrolled on “luxury on wheels” segment, only “Palace on wheels’ appeared.Marketing efforts are being made in full throttle and advertising in print media has also been started. The advertisement carrying the itinerary of the train, has been displayed along with the tariff per person. While the telephone numbers of the team running the train in Delhi and Jaipur both are mentioned in the advertisement, it carries information about the starting of online booking as well. However, when DNA logged on to the website www.tourism.rajasthan.gov.in, online booking for only Palace on wheels was seen on the page.Also when DNA contacted the landline numbers on Tuesday evening, the number’s remained unanswered. The golden triangle package will cover Delhi-Jaipur and Agra with departure of the train from New Delhi Safdarjung railway station. The desert triangle circuit will be started from January 5 and include places like Churu, Ramgarh, Nawalgarh, Tal Chhapar (Churu) before returning back to Delhi.Notably, the announcement of the new train was made by tourism minister Krishnendra Kaur Deepa and ACS, NC Goel during the press meet to list achievements of 4 years. They had declared that the new train will start from December 22. Officers were specially sent to London during the world travel mart few weeks back to market the train, however it could not get the passengers.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a bizarre incident, a self-styled monk bobbitised himself on Tuesday after he was accused of having an illicit relationship with a woman in Rajasthan’s Churu district. He was immediately rushed to hospital, where he is under observation.The monk, identified as 30-year-old Santosh Das, was part of the Haridas Ashram in the Tara Nagar area of the town. According to locals, Das would frequent a home occupied by a woman, which was located near the ashram. This infuriated locals, who alleged that he was in a relationship with her.On Tuesday morning, Das was accosted by the locals who made the allegations and questioned his pious nature. Unable to handle the humiliation, the monk returned to the ashram and bobbitised himself. His shrieks alerted the other monks in the ashram, who immediately rushed him to a local hospital from where he was referred to Bikaner where his status is said to be stable.The police said that no complaint had been received, but added that a team would visit Bikaner on Wednesday to record his statement.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Just before the Churu encounter, the dreaded gangster Anandpal Singh, whose name struck terror and fear among the public, had to eat a humble pie when he was beaten up creditors of a person who had given him refuge. The gangster, who had beaten up several men and even killed people with his bare hands, was made to beat a hasty retreat when just three men gave Anandpal the taste of his own medicine.The story takes place in the backdrop of a village in Hanumangarh district and involves one more character – Sunil Sodhi. “Sodhi is an accused in the Rs 75 lakh loot at Bhadra. He was close to Anandpal and had taken a huge amount of money from various creditors on loan, an amount that he was not able to repay. For this, his creditors were also looking for him,” highly placed SOG officials said.But Sodhi played another game. “He gave a safe house to Anandpal, thinking that he will be safe from his creditors as a Don as infamous as Anandpal was with him and fearing him, no one will dare to realise the loaned amount,” officials added.However, this is where Sodhi was wrong. “Sometime in June, Anandpal decided to go for a haircut. Sodhi took the gangster in his vehicle and as the duo reached nearby barber’s shop in Sodhi’s village, Sodhi was stopped by his creditors. Sodhi thought that in the company of Anandpal, nobody would dare to touch him. However, the creditors were not impressed by his flaunting and started beating him and before Anandpal could react, he found himself at the receiving end. It appears that they were not aware of the fact that the man they were bashing was the dreaded Anandpal. The shrewd Anandpal, who was carrying a pistol with him, realised that receiving a few punches was a better option than exposing his real identity before them.“He could have used the weapon to kill the men, but probably the sudden beating caught him off guard and he escaped from the scene leaving Sodhi at the mercy of his creditors. However, Anandpal could not afford to offend Sodhi, who suffered a broken jaw and other injuries. So, he sent his brother to pacify Sodhi. Anandpal’s brother told Sodhi that had the Don used his weapon against them and killed anyone of them, the matter would have gone out of hand,” highly placed SOG officials said.
