The sand Art is 15 feet wide and uses 15 tonnes of sand. It took Mr.Manas about 7 hours to build it which engraves the message saying “World TB Day” along with the theme of this year i.e “The Clock is Ticking”. The Sand Art was inaugurated by Sub Collector Mr. Saraj Swain, CDMPHO Dr. Sujata Mishra, and ADPHO TB Dr. Lalatendhu Mishra,Puri.
