The students of the Industrial Training Institute in Berhampur, Odisha, have created Bapu’s monument out of garbage as a unique tribute to Mahatma Gandhi. On the eve of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary, they made a six-foot-tall sculpture of him. The kids worked on the idea of making the best out of waste and created this statue because the Father of the Nation placed a strong emphasis on cleanliness. The statue, which weighs about 100 kg, was constructed out of garbage, primarily 1,600 fan bearings.”The 100 kg (6 feet) tall sculpture of Gandhiji is created out of vehicle parts. The sculpture, the first of its sort in the nation, was built using over 1600 fan bearings.
The creative concept behind this product is “Swachchata Ru Dakhyata” (Swachchata Se Dakshata – Excellence through Cleanliness). Dr. Rajat Panigrahy, director of ITI, commented on the matter by saying, “This is a great tribute to the Father of our Nation.”The ITI principal noted that she was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposal to make money from waste “Gandhiji emphasised cleanliness in his speeches. The Swachh Bharat initiative was started by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji in 2014. In addition to making money, our students are also using their abilities to maintain cleanliness.”
In Odisha, Panigrahy, sometimes known as “The Scrap Man,” is credited with inventing a number of sculptures constructed from residential and industrial scrap garbage by ITI students. He dubbed the talent responsible for Mahatma Gandhi’s success “Waste To Wealth.”
