Singapore has a sizeable Indian population as well as a pre-dominantly Indian “Little India” enclave, which is also the station to get the makeover.
Land Transport Authority, part of the Ministry of Transport of Government of Singapore launched its first Diwali-themed train.
The coaches of this train are decked up with beautiful images of diyas (oil filled lamps) and garlands. Images of lotus, peacock, and jewelery that capture the traditions of India are also present.
The train will run on the North East Line (NEL) which includes the Little India station. The platforms have been decorated with colorful floral designs, rangoli, and motifs.
The dazzling Diwali celebrations are also seen in other parts of the world. Last week, about 30,000 people gathered in Leicester to watch the annual Diwali lights.
