Rouble Nagi: Painting One Slum At A Time
“Misaal Mumbai” is an initiative by Artist and Social Worker Rouble Nagi. Rouble has been working in and around Mumbai’s slums for the past decade or so. Under the Misaal Mumbai initiative, she started a project called ‘Paint Dharavi’ in 2012 and carried this forward to other areas like Jaffer Baba Colony and Mount Mary in Bandra West, Dhobi Ghat. We met Rouble and her team while they were painting Koliwada village near Worli Sea Link. The result was an explosion of rainbow hues that would be visible from far away, stretching from one dwelling to the next in a wave of unexpected energy.
