Bhubaneswar: Extending support to the MaskIndia campaign, Odisha IAS couple-Arabinda K Padhee and Usha Padhee-has shared a few pictures of home-sewn face masks.
Recently, senior IAS officer Arabinda Padhee took to Twitter and shared pictures of the home-sewn face masks made by his wife Usha Padhee, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India.
After the state Government made it compulsory for all the people in the state to wear mask while stepping out for groceries or otheressential items, the demand for surgical and N-95 masks has beaten the amount of their supply.
In a bid give people an idea of making a pocket-friendly mask at home, Padhee shared few pictures of his wife stitching masks from traditional handloom fabric for themselves. He also added a picture of himself wearing one.
Apart from that, Padhee, through his tweet, encouraged others to take part in the MaskIndia movement and spare the surgical and N-95 masks for health officials.
