Bakul believes in the power of Art to create awareness and has been called upon to demonstrate the impact of using the Arts in creating awareness on several issues such as Peace, HIV and domestic labour. This is in addition to using the Arts to create awareness on the issues Bakul works on such as tree gifting and water/sanitation.
Hence, there has been an emphasis on Public Art. Bakul organizing the painting of the Wall of Peace in which hundreds of artists, including eminent national artists, professionals, art college students, school students etc. participated in painting a 500 ft long wall on the theme of Peace after the ethnic violence in Kandhamal to give the message of Art and Peace. The same public wall has been painted as the Wall of Water on World Water Day 2013.
