Verification: AI-Generated Image of Train Is Shared as Kerala’s Onam Special Vande Bharat Express
People have shared an image of a train decorated with flowers on social media claiming that it is the Vande Bharat Express, which has been decorated in light of the Onam festivities. People shared that “this is a picture of a railway station in Kerala specially decorated for Onam. The flowers near the tracks are real and have been planted specially for the occasion. Onam is being celebrated from 20 August to 2 September”
In fact, the viral image was created using Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools by a digital creator, Aneesh Chakkottil, who posted the image on Facebook on 29 July. Aneesh works at Copper And Black Advertising according to his Facebook profile. Copper & Black can be seen on the left side of the image going viral. The train in the image is from Kyoto, Japan.
