Why is the Railway Protection Force supporting a clichéd film to promote passenger safety?

A male passenger fantasises about a young woman on the train and ends up a victim.

It's a popular warning that one shouldn't accept food or drinks from strangers on Indian trains. But if the lure is more than food, and instead a beautiful young woman, men may not be able to resist, this film (video above) suggests.

Stereotypes 1, Real world thinking 0.

So, to stay safe on a train, don't fall for femme fatales, and keep all illusions of romance at bay. That's what this film put up by the YouTube channel InCrena, made in collaboration with the Railway Protection Force (East Coast Railway), seems to suggest.

Titled You are Next!, the film tries to be sinister but fails. At the start it looks like a film about a lecherous male passenger, but takes an inevitable turn when the innocent seductress he's fantasising about offers him a cup of tea with sedatives and runs off with his luggage.

Just your everyday threat to train passengers.

The Facebook page for the InCrena channel says about the film, "Crime Alert: Watch out this Mind Blowing 7 minutes Video which will Force you to Ask only Question from Yourself, 'Will I be Next?'"

Will I?

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
