In a bid to change public perception about railways stations with their filthy platforms and congested entry points, the Delhi division of the Northern Railways has turned to art.

On Sunday, a public art installation was inaugurated in the concourse area at the main entry of the Hazrat Nizammudin station.

The art, which depicts a moving train along with several human faces and lanterns has been designed by noted artist Naresh Kapuria.

“We have been making consistent efforts to beautify railway stations and the art installation at Nizammudin station was one part of it,” said Ashwani Lohani, divisional railway manager (Delhi), northern railway.
