The Borivali and Khar stations in Mumbai have become an example of vibrant art. Everything in the stations from staircases to overhead bridges, from walls to ticket windows, every corner of the railway station is depicting a kind of art in itself. You can see the paintings of animals, table games, trees and much more, that is giving the station a very cheerful ambience.
This has been done by around 500 volunteers of the NGO, Making a Difference(MAD) Foundation.
“The idea is also to lighten the mood of commuters. We want commuters to have a feeling of ownership, so that they stop littering the stations as well as persuade others from doing so. We are looking at contributions from corporate houses, and our volunteers are also reaching out to residential colonies across Borivali to seek help,” Haresh Shah, the secretary of the foundation had told DNA in December last year.
The MAD Foundaion started this work in December 2015, to paint 30 staircases and 54 pillars at the Borivali station additionally, seven staircases and 12 pillars at the Khar Railway Station. See their work below and love their art.
