The walls have a simple red paint with a white boundary, see above. This gives a nice look throughout the city. A similar thing runs in Bhubaneshwar with tribal drawings on the walls.

Our cities need more such practical solutions to make the area more comfortable. With the mess around in a city like Mumbai, it is but so easy for some to put some stray objects around (with no one the wiser).
