Slums in Pune being coloured under 'Misaal Mumbai', an initiative of Rouble Nagi- a Mumbai-based artist & founder of NGO Rouble Nagi Art Foundation; Nagi says,"I want to connect to these people through arts. Main aim is not to colour the walls but bring a change in their mindset"

Rouble is the founder of the Mumbai-based NGO that goes by the name of Rouble Nagi Art Foundation. Rouble told pune-news.com that her main aim behind this project is to connect with people. She said, "I want to connect to these people through arts. The main aim is not to colour the walls but bring a change in their mindset."

Rouble continued, "When I paint 20 walls here, 200 people come & stand with me. If I go to their home as a social activist and try to help, they'll have that speculation that who is she. So we start with colouring, they come out of their homes, & that's when we tell them what we want to do."

Her initiative has gone viral and Twitterati cannot stop praising Rouble and her thought behind the whole process.
