Students from LU's Arts College, paint roads with a message for Lucknow: 'Stay Home'

Students spread awareness against the contraction of Covid-19, art urges residents to stay at home

The entire world is currently fighting a long and weary battle with the novel Coronavirus. While healthcare professionals, police and administration are in the frontlines of this battle, several volunteers and civilians have also joined forces in our combined effort to defeat the deadly virus. Several art students from Lucknow University also came forward to support the cause and spread awareness about the contraction of Covid-19.


In an effort to help Lucknow administrations and spread awareness about Covid-19, students from Lucknow University's Arts College painted roads with messages of caution for residents.

What's the update?

Art students in Lucknow, took to roads with the aim to spread awareness against the spread of the novel Coronavirus. On Sunday, a handful of students from Lucknow University's Arts College conducted an awareness drive in Daliganj's Mansarovar Mandir ward with the help of captivating art.

These students spent hours hunched over roads in an effort to paint a singular message, with hopes that the art will make home in the hearts and minds of local residents. These students made the grey roads come to life with vibrant colours, a message to stay home and practice caution.

The art included a depiction of the fearsome coronavirus, masks, as well as healthcare and sanitation professionals hard at work. While one painting simply reminded us that the entire world is currently locked down, the other expressed hope of defeating the virus with the right attitude. Rakesh Prabhakar, Amit Rajan Verma, Surdeep Yadav, Dhirendra Pratap, Vijay Veer, Surya Deep Yadav and Shanti Veer, among others, spent hours bringing these artistic expressions to life.

While the frequency of reported cases seem to have slowed down and plasma treatment has also begun in Lucknow, prevention against the deadly virus is still better than the cure. Which is exactly what the students preached- you can save yourself and your loved ones from contracting the viral disease by simply staying at home, practicing social distancing and practicing precautionary measures.
