Mumbai: Mirchi, a brand that has always been at the forefront of spreading happiness, has unveiled a massive tribute mural called the ‘Lions of COVID’ on the wall of Swami Vivekananda Metro Station in Bengaluru. Curated in partnership with the Aravani Art Project, a Women and Trans-Women art collective who have a passion for art as a social practice, the wall features healthcare professionals, the police force, sanitization workers, and delivery executives, to honor India’s frontline workers who are risking their lives to keep us safe at home.
