That time of year again! Daan Utsav, “The joy of giving week”, which is celebrated from 2nd October – 8th October all over India. Mumbai First joined hands with The Souled Store to bring colours to the Mumbai Central Station, Mumbai.
The initiative was supported by Western Railways.
The theme of the art/ murals painted at the station was to describe the essence of our city and celebrate the Mumbai’s Spirit. Therefore various iconic elements of the city such as Bollywood, the Mumbai skyline, etc were picked. The designs revolved around Mumbai’s culture, its food, and especially its people. It’s a tribute to all the real life heroes like dabbawala, policeman, etc.
It was a 100% volunteer driven initiative, around 300 volunteers came together in the wee hours of the night to give life to the lifeline of our city.
Cleon D’Souza – It was an interesting experience, so many people coming together to bring a difference to our city. It was especially awesome seeing our designs on the panels and knowing that a part of us will always be on the walls of the city.
Mishaal – It’s a rare opportunity to paint the walls of Mumbai central railway station and I feel blessed to have been a part of this. I look forward to more of such opportunities where we help make the community better and a more beautiful place to live in.
