The Legend of Om Banna:
The story is about Om Singh Rathore, a resident of Chotila Village in Rajasthan. Being a newly wed groom, he was called Om Banna (Banna is the word parochially used to refer to newly wed grooms). On a tragic night, while on the way to attend a marriage, Om Banna died on spot after his 350 cc Royal Enfield Bullet slammed into a tree and fell into a ditch. The next day police arrived at the spot, confiscated the mutilated bike and took it to the police station. However, next day, to the surprise of the policemen, the bike disappeared from their custody and on investigation, they found the bike in the same ditch from where it was taken away. Suspecting a mischievous robbery attempt, the cops seized the bike again, emptied the fuel tank and chained it.
However, to the awe of the cops and the locals, the bike again returned to the same ditch triggering a flurry of canards and gossips. The eerie returning of the bike continued a few more times. Meanwhile some people claimed to have seen Om Banna at at the marriage function. As the news spread, it attracted hundreds of visitors to the site and with time, Om Banna acquired godly status and the bike became a deity. As time progressed, a small shrine was built and the Royal Enfield bike, now known as the Bullet Baba, was encased in a glass box.
