Diwali is here and the spirit of the festival of light is already shining bright in Singapore!
Singapore is the first one to get in the festive mood with a pretty Diwali-themed train that was launched by the Singapore’s
Minister for Transport, Khaw Boon Wan, and will run on the North East Line (NEL) till mid of November!
In Singapore the Indian origin population in close to 8-9% while Hindus are at least 5% of the total population. Singapore being the hub of business, commerce and education, sees a huge footfall from India and many other nations. In short, this move will go down well with the Indian origin people as well as the Hindus across the world!
In a Facebook post of the Land Transport Authority, the pictures of the pretty Diwali train were shared along with this announcement:
Get ready to celebrate the Festival of Lights in a whole new illuminating way this year!
We’ve launched our first #Deepavali themed train today and you can now experience part of the stunning decorations at Little India right inside the #MRT.
Decked out in this year’s Deepavali theme, the train features elegant elements such as intricate Indian jewelleries, the lotus and peacock – a symbol of good luck.
The themed train was launched by Minister for Transport, Mr Khaw Boon Wan, and will run on the North East Line (NEL) till mid-November! And psst…check out the photos on how you can soak in the festive vibes beyond taking this themed train 🙂
For this Diwali themed train the LTA collaborated with the Little India Shopkeepers and Heritage Association (LISHA) and needless to say the pictures are classy and show the best part of the Diwali; colors, light and happiness.
