Indore has earned the tag of the cleanest city in India for two years in a row and now with the ‘Swachh Survekshan 2019’ initiative, its also vying to be the most beautiful too!
In 2017, the launch of door-to-door garbage collection system and dust free roads helped Indore to win cleanest city tag and they’ve been competing with other tier-1 and tier-2 cities ever since. In 2018, segregation of waste at source and in-depth waste management helped it to retain it’s number 1 spot and there has been no looking back!
And now Indore is not only going clean but also artsy! The ‘Sulabh’ toilet complexes in Indore have received a folk art and mandana makeover whereas the city walls of the district jail have been splashed with multi-hued kitschy designs, Warli and Gond art murals depicting the Indian culture at its best. The toilets are clean and now, they are visually appealing too!
So this year, artists have turned the city into their own colourful canvas and the jaw-dropping results have us smiling!
The city’s footpaths, public walls, zoo, slum entrances and so on have undergone an artistic overhaul and it is not limited to this only!
The boundary wall and over-bridge of the Indore railway station has been embellished with beauteous 3D paintings of famous monuments of the state which seem to pop out of the walls!
Likewise, the boundary wall of the Indore Zoo now features famous Jungle Book characters like Mowgli, Bagheera, Sher Khan and Balloo because apparently the story of Mowgli has been inspired by the dense forests of Madhya Pradesh!
Indore has been making India proud because of the top-notch hygiene and cleanliness standards and we could only wish other cities would follow suit. Aren’t these reasons enough for you to visit this artistic city already?!
