People who spared their time, skills and willingness to add colour and themes to the city walls and those who stopped by to see the amazing transformation, both felt like working or walking in a museum. So far the Corporation asked people to draw on any theme related to social issues and environment but now in the other places, it is contemplating on themes specific to Madurai. “It will make the locals more aware and also inform the tourists about the city highlights,” notes Sandeep. While the 500-metre wall stretching from Burma Bazaar to the main gate of the Madurai Railway junction was the hotspot of artistic activity last Sunday, Sandeep has plans for similar street art projects on New Jail Road, Madura College Road and Sellur in the next phase. “With increasing peoples’ participation we will give the city a facelift, wall by wall,” he promises. Political graffiti and cinema...
posters will gradually be replaced as the people of the city will now have more opportunities to express themselves, their culture and how the city influences them.
Sandeep is aware there are no limits on messages that can be conveyed and what he is also sure is that street art will help to skip damages to public spaces. “When people connect and feel more responsible towards their city, they become agents of social change,” he says, “and once they embrace the simple concept as an organic community activity, inspiration flows.”
And surely, the lively scenes of the stunning street art will lure the selfie-addicts -- as already seen!

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
