Pune: As a part of the Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) plan to celebrate the 125th year of Ganeshotsav, a team comprising students and faculty of the Marathwada Mitramandal’s College of Architecture (MMCA) has adopted a pedestrian underpass at Deccan Gymkhana near Sambhaji Maharaj statue to transform it into an ‘open art court’.

The team, on the occasion of Independence Day, painted the walls of the subway with a message that imbibes a sense of pride and belonging in the hearts of Puneites.

They have also drawn different images of Lord Ganesh and depicted energy that is exuberant in Pune during the Ganesh festival.

The students were supported by Gardwel Industries, in collaboration with Rotary Club of Pune-NIBM and the Deccan police station. The event was attended by President of Rotary Club of Pune-NIBM, Manoj Karyekar and fellow Rotarians.

The MMCA students were encouraged by their faculties Vishakha Bhondwe, Saurabh Joshi, Prajakta Khanvalkar, Manjusha Wagh and mentored by Principal Aparna Dixit.
