Berhampur ITI unveils Netaji’s sculpture made from scrap

Berhampur: A sculpture of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, built from scrap materials, was unveiled at the Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Berhampur, on the occasion of the 126th birth anniversary of the legendary freedom fighter today.

The six-foot high sculpture has been made by using fan bearings, motorcycle chains, nuts and bolts, gears, iron rods and other scrap materials.

According to sources, around 30 students of fitter, electrician, welder, painter and some other trades along with a few of the faculty members of the ITI took around 15 days to build the sculpture, weighing around 150 kg.

The students collected the scrap materials from electrical workshops and automobile garages from the city here, said a faculty member of the IIT, Berhampur.

“Our students have built the sculpture as part of their efforts to create wealth from waste for the betterment of the society. We unveiled the sculpture today to pay homage to Netaji,” he added.

ITI, Berhampur Principal Rajat Kumar Panigrahy, faculty members of the institute and several other dignitaries were present on the occasion.

Notably, the students of the institute had earlier received accolades from several quarters for building a sculpture of Gandhiji from scrap materials.
