Unique effort to capture Mumbaiwalas in action

Aiming to celebrate Mumbai’s incredible servants through art, Kanakia Art Foundation has launched a unique photography initiative “Mumbaiwala” asking the residents to click pictures of the autowalas, chaiwalas and dabbawalas in action. 

The climax of the initiative, part of KAF’s two-year-old Mumbai Meri Jaan project, will be an exhibition of selected entries in the Kanakia Zillion Gallery, the iconic art landmark of Mumbai at BKC Annexe. 

Residents have been invited to click pictures of the financial capital’s foot soldiers at the thick of their daily work, depicting their dedication and hard work. 

“We want to showcase Mumbai’s true diversity and thank those who are serving the city day-in and day-out,” Kanakia Group’s Managing Director Himanshu B Kanakia said. 

“Mumbai Meri Jaan is a way to celebrate the live spirit of Mumbai and this year, we want to salute those hands who have touched millions of lives in this city. The ‘walas’ are an indispensable part of our life, and Mumbaiwala is an effort to show their hard work through people’s participation,” he added. 

Entries reaching Mumbai Meri Jaan will be scrutinised by renowned lensman Atul Kasbekar.
