India beautifies city with art made of recycled waste

STORY: India has beautified this city with art made of recycled waste

Location: Varanasi, India

There's a statue of iconic Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi

installations displaying people riding elephants

and the Kathakali dance, which comes from Kerala state

[Vasudevan Deivasigamani, Chief General Manager / Smart City Varanasi]

"The municipal corporation generally has ample waste materials, scrap materials, and trolleys among other things. Waste materials made of iron and plastic, as well as tires, accumulate within the municipal corporation. So, we thought of converting these into art."
