Puri: Renowned sand artist Manas Sahoo has shown his support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s novel initiative of Janata Curfew through a sand animation video.
With the message ‘Support Janata Curfew, Save Self’, the 3-minute 4-second video is both mesmerising and informative. On his video which took about three hours to complete, Sahoo said, “Novel coronavirus has created panic worldwide but let us not get scared. Instead, we must take necessary precautions as mandated by the government. Let us all come together and follow the Janata Curfew as invoked by our Prime Minister.”
Janata curfew or self-imposed quarantine is expected to break the chain of coronavirus infections, which the World Health Organisation (WHO) says spread through person-to-person contact and respiratory droplets.
