Puri: International sand artist from Odisha Manas Kumar Sahoo is creating awareness among people on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day through a sand sculpture on the golden sea-beach at Baliapanda in Puri.

Sahoo has created a sand art of a man smoking cigarette and lungs depicting how tobacco is badly affecting and injuring the organs. The sand art shows how a healthy person after consuming tobacco is getting nearer and nearer to death.

"Love your lungs not tobacco, beware tobacco may kill you," is the message Sahoo intends to give to the society through the sand art which is around 15 feet wide and some 20 tonnes of sand is used to build it.
