The idea is to have railings at the edge of the railway platform to prevent people stepping down or boarding in a running train. This also prevents people from jumping on the railway lines to cross over to the other side. This railing comes down when a train arrives so that passengers can board the train or disembark easily.
The idea stemmed from an accident witnessed by Ram Nikash. He likes reading Enid Blyton and watching Hollywood movies. His favorite artist is Jeremy Lee Renner. He also likes chess and wants to become a space scientist.
