Kalvi Varu street in Mylapore, a long stretch of road behind Vidhya Mandir School, used to be one of the most abused places in the city. Former MLA Dr.Natraj, Chennai Corporation, City Works Architects, Mylapore Resident Welfare Association, Vidhya Mandhir Alumni association and few residents of the area took up the cause of transforming the place. After persistent hard work for more than two years, the space is now reclaimed, pavements relaid, a park and gym created.
Karam Korpom Foundation pitched in to make the place even more beautiful with eye catching wall paintings. The wall painting theme included the history of Buckingham Canal, butterfly inhabitant, people of the city and a few selfie spots. With a team of professional artists, painters and committed volunteers, Karam Korpom Foundation completed the wall art in time and it certainly stands as one of the most admired KKF works. Thanks to City Works for the opportunity, The Sanmar Group for funding and all the volunteers who had put in their time and skill despite the pandemic.
Karam Korpom Foundation is proud of all the volunteers for their commitment and support.
