Puri: Sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik created a sculpture of a running tap on Puri beach on the occasion of ‘Anant Chaturdashi’ on Thursday to create awareness on the judicious use of water.
The eminent artist depicted an overfilled bucket with water flowing into a drain. He also inscribed the slogan “Don’t Waste Water” at the bottom of the sand art.
Pattnaik said the theme of his sculpture was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign to conserve water.
On July 28, the PM while addressing the nation through his monthly radio broadcast “Mann ki Baat”, made a strong push for conserving every drop of water. He had also cited various examples of conservation efforts being undertaken by various states.
