The Gully Boy Fever Continues With TMC Paving The Way For The Underprivileged

The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has decided to set up nine Gully Art Studios in each ward to provide training for underprivileged kids in music, dance and acting.


As a part of Thane Municipal Corporation's 'Happiness Index Scheme', the underprivileged kids will now be able to do extracurricular activities like dance, singing, acting etc.  after their school hours for free. The TMC has decided to set up 9 'Gully Art Studios' in schools where children will be trained for 6-8 months.

The children will further be encouraged to participate in state, national and international level competitions. The studios will be built at an approximate cost of ₹75 lakhs and will prove to be a boon for parents who cannot afford these classes for their kids. 

However, as stated in Hindustan Times, according to Raju Tulalwar who is a director and producer of children's theatre, many theatres have experimented with this but people do not turn up for such plays. Further, it should be the school's responsibility to have six Arts subjects  in their curriculum i.e.  drawing, sculpting, singing, acting, dance and one musical instrument.
