Assam artist constructs Durga idol using medical waste

Oct 25, 2020 12:08 IST

Using expired medication such as tablets, capsules and injection syringes, an artist from Assam has given a unique twist to this year's coronavirus-themed Durga idol. 

Sanjib Basak told ANI he started preparations this time after the second phase of Lokdan after witnessing the discarding of medical waste. He explained that since everyone is thinking about #COVID19 treatment, he decided to make the idol using medicines. 

Basak claims to have used 30,000 expired tablets and syringes to make the statue.
