Varkala വാൻ Blessed to have escaped death by beheading! Raju is lucky to have escaped only because he ran away when the banyan tree near the Punnamoodu Ganapati Temple near the Varkala railway station fell. The 100-year-old tree fell during heavy rains that continued for two days.

If Raju had been shocked to see a tree falling, this news would have taken another form. The tree fell on the spot where Raju immediately ran away. Raju was walking from Itarod to the main road. Raju, a native of Kuraikanni, Varkala, is a security guard in a private company. On Thursday, Thozhan reached Punnamoodu after work and came to the temple on a bicycle. That’s when the cupboard fell.

Surviving the tragedy, however, the forty-year-old’s trepidation has not abated. Moments before the tree fell, a vehicle had passed by. The Varkala-Edava road was closed due to falling trees. This is a busy road on normal days. The railway line crosses on the other side of the road.

No damage was done to the Ganapati temple. Varkala police and fire brigade arrived and cut down the tree. With the help of a bulldozer, the branches were removed and traffic was restored. Appointed MLA Vs. Joy and others arrived on the scene. The rain, which had continued for two days, eased a bit.
