Pune Divisional Railway Manager B K Dadabhoy, Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Krishnath Patil, and Additional DRM Milind Deuskar also participated in the activity.

“As part of the programme the officials, the volunteers, and others who were present on the occasion also took an oath of cleanliness. The beautification drive will continue in phases,” said ManojJhanvar,

Pune Division PRO.

The drawings chosen for depiction on the walls are based on themes in Maharashtrian culture. Professional artists drew an outline of various drawings suggested by the NGO which were subsequently approved by the railway administration. The volunteers then used paint to fill in the outlines.

“The drawings have lit up the otherwise bland wall. It’s being liked by passengers,” said Jhanwar.
