Brushstrokes of change: Subi, Tanveer using painting to kindle social awareness in Okhla.
Two students of Jamia Millia Islamia and one a resident of Jamia Nagar are on an impossible mission to change mindset of the local residents with their paintings. The event is backed and sponsored by CII Foundation.
If you walk through Abul Fazal Enclave main road these days then you might see painting on walls with important message of keeping the area clean standing out when most of the walls are plastered by posters put by aspirants, politicians and traders.
The two youths Subi and Tanveer have been painting walls and have plans to do so across the locality after finishing painting carrying cleanliness message in Abul Fazal Enclave, they will replicate their work in Shaheen Bagh.
“The area is very dirty and people don’t hesitate to dump garbage on roads which is bad habit. With these paintings we want to grab their attention and send a message that they should keep their area clean and avoid dumping garbage on roads,” said Subi, who is a Fine Arts student at Jamia.
Agreeing with his colleague, Tanveer said the purpose of painting on walls is to create awareness among residents for keeping their locality clean as they keep their house.
Both the youngsters’ work is being highly appreciated by residents.
