Amrit Kalash Yatra: Special Train Honoring India’s Bravehearts; Check Details Here

In an effort to pay tribute to India’s courageous soldiers, a series of Amrit Kalash special trains are currently running across the country as part of the ‘Meri Mati Mera Desh’ campaign. These trains are set to start arriving in New Delhi today, October 27.

As part of the Meri Mati Mera Desh (MMMD) campaign, sacred soil and rice were collected from households all over the country and placed in Amrit Kalash containers. These materials will be instrumental in creating the ‘Amrit Vatika’ and the ‘Azaadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ memorials at Kartavyapath, near India Gate in New Delhi.

The Amrit Kalash Yatra was officially flagged off in Assam, with Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma launching the Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express, carrying a total of 270 urns filled with soil. This yatra began in Assam on September 20, 2023, and involved collecting soil from households in all villages and municipal wards of Assam, mixing it together, and placing it in urns in Guwahati.

The special train from Vijayawada is scheduled to embark on its journey at 10 am on Saturday, October 28, making stops at various stations, including Kazipet, Balharshah, Nagpur, Itarsi Junction, Bhopal, Virangana Lakshmibai Jhansi, and Agra Cantt, before reaching Hazrat Nizamuddin at 2.25 pm the following day.

The Culture Ministry has announced that trains from Tripura and Meghalaya will arrive in Delhi on Friday, while trains from Assam and Sikkim are expected to reach their destination on October 28. Special trains from Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and Lakshadweep, carrying over one thousand five hundred delegates, will reach New Delhi on October 29. The train from Rajasthan is scheduled to arrive in New Delhi on the 30th of this month.

The nationwide ‘Meri Mati Mera Desh’ campaign was launched on August 9 of this year to pay tribute to the ‘Veers’ who made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation.
