Mumbai slum makeover reminiscent of Italy’s vibrant Positano village

The dull and grey Ghatkopar slum in Mumbai was transformed into a bright and colourful place attracting visitors, thanks to  Dedeepya Reddy's non-profit initiative 'Chal Rang De' which tied up with the Metro and paint manufacturer Snowcem Paints to give the boring vertical slum a postcard-like makeover that reminds one of Italy's vibrant Positano village.

Reddy got her team to create a website and found several hundred volunteers, including senior citizens, online who finished painting 175 walls in two weekends. Muralists also joined in to paint murals reflecting the life of the locals.
