Puri: Renowned sand artist from Odisha, Manas Kumar Sahoo, on the eve of World Heart Day 2019 has conveyed a great message to all through his miniature replica of a 'Human Heart' on sand.
The sand art is meant to create awareness amongst all to take utmost care of their heart to lead a happy and healthy life.
Sedentary lifestyle or lack of physical activity, chewing tobacco or its forms, drinking alcohol, unhealthy diet etc. are some of the causes for an unhealthy heart, so one needs to follow a healthy regime for a healthy heart.
Sahoo toiled for five hours to create this heart, built out of 15 tons of sand and covering almost 15 feet width of the seashore near Light House in Puri, with the message, 'Keep Your Heart Fit & Healthy'.
