India Travel-OM Bana- Motorcycle Baba-Bike Worshiped- Jodhpur-Pali Highway- Rajasthan - India











These photographs are taken from Jodhpur-Pali highway and this place is famous for its "Motorcycle Baba" or "Om Bana". At this place Bullet Motorcycle is worshiped and people of Rajasthan strongly believe in him.The story of worshiping the bike goes like, few years ago "Om Bana" referred to the young Rajput Boy was driving on the highway and had a sudden death due to bike accident.The police took the vehicle to the police station but the very next day vehicle was again there at the accident point , the police later on removed the fuel and punctured the tyre but again the bike went to the same point. During the phase there were plenty of accidents happened which were brutal.Later some old folk suggested to keep the bike their only and start worshiping as this was the reason for accidents over the place.Same thing was implemented and since then all there were no more accidents. The Bike is worshiped and Alcohol is also dedicated to Shri Om Bana.Driver believe that if they are passing through that highway its necessary for them to worship him and if they do it they don't have any problems during their journey.

This is something really amazing and very fascinating to know but at the very same time a real truth.Believe it or Not.

So, a motorcycle is worshiped in order to gain safe travel? That's very interesting. I must say I've not seen anything like that.

Perhaps I misunderstood?
