Paint My City

Paint My innovation for bringing social reform and positive changes has caught the imagination of the people.

Thanks to the drive of Surendra Kumar Meena, District Collector, the   students and artists have put their sincere efforts to paint the city.
“It is an innovation to give social message and awareness to the public on different social issues”, said Mr.Meena
He said “when we all learn to confirm these social values definitely we can move towards a positive change of attitude and take part in bringing social changes of society and take part in the process and encourage the talents.
As part of the innovative initiative, a portion of the compound wall of Chhau Field in Baripada town got a fresh look recently due to the efforts of the students of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV).
They painted the wall with messages related to environment protection, sanitation and sorcery-related incidents. 
Mayurbhanj District Administration in association with Sarva Shiksha Abhijan (SSA), has launched the wall painting initiative which aims at  spreading awareness among the people on vital issues.
The student artists of KGBV are also using tribal arts and culture to paint the walls with messages related to protection of forest and wildlife, conservation of water resources and soil, sanitation and combating witch hunting and superstition-related atrocities.
The initiative not only creates awareness on social issues but provides a good platform for the students to exhibit their talent on art. The aim is to create awareness among the public on several issues through wall paintings.
Apart from KGBV students, other artists will also be roped in to intensify the drive. In order to encourage them, the District Administration will felicitate selected students and artists with cash award on 26 January  for their innovative job, said an officer.
A painting denouncing the evils of child marriage has drawn attention of many parents and the student was very happy with appreciation of the painting.
