The foundation had approached railway authorities to seek permission for painting murals across several platforms of the station. After getting a nod from the authorities, the students started work in the first week of April.

A number of murals, doodles and social messages have been drawn by the volunteers across the station’s ten platforms. The masterpiece, however, is the painting of the first passenger train that had plied between Boribunder and Thane in 1853 on April 16.
