People power! Village comes together to pull truck out

A video of people pulling the truck out of the gorge with the help of ropes has surfaced on the internet and has been uploaded on Facebook.  The video is from Kutsapo village near Phek district of Nagaland and the driver did not face any major injuries. Because there was no machinery available in the village to pull the truck, the local people of the village decided to pull the truck out themselves. According to reports, the truck was carrying ginger, it met with an accident and somehow ended up in the gorge.

We can see hundreds of people that came out to help. They have used many ropes to tie the truck from various places and then pulled the truck in unity. We can see that the gorge is quite steep and it would have been difficult to pull the truck without proper equipment. Still, the people of Kutsapo village were able to pull the truck. They took it slow while pulling the truck and did it inch by inch. People used bamboo trees to make this thing possible.

We can also see that the road is quite narrow just like typical hilly roads. It would have not been possible to pull such a heavy truck if there was no unity in the villagers. This video proves that there is strength in unity. The truck could have weighed more than 16 tonnes! To compare a typical premium hatchback weighs less than a ton. The truck was manufactured by Tata Motors who is a homegrown manufacturer and is currently working on launching a new SUV in the Indian market.

The video is also tweeted by Mmhonlumo Kikon who is a BJP spokesperson. He wrote “In a village in Nagaland (not yet identified) the entire community pulls up a truck, which fell off the road with ropes & the spirit of unity! More information awaited! As received on WhatsApp,”

Tata will be launching the iconic Tata Safari, which was discontinued the previous year because of the BS6 emission norms and safety regulations. The Safari is based on the OMEGARC (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture) architecture which is derived from Land Rover’s D8 architecture. Land Rover is also currently owned by Tata Motors. The new SUV will be based on the Tata’s impact 2.0 design philosophy which we have also seen on the Harrier and the Altroz. The Harrier will also be sharing quite a bit of part with the Safari because the new SUV is basically a 7-seater version of the Harrier.

Powering it will be the same 2.0-litre Kyrotec diesel engine that produces 170 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 350 Nm. It will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The Safari will be the new flagship vehicle for Tata Motors so they are trying to offer everything that they can with it. It gets a floating touchscreen infotainment system, push-button to start/stop, electrically adjustable driver seat, cruise control, panoramic sunroof and a lot more. Tata Safari will be launching on 26th January.
