Berhampur ITI Students Build Netaji Idol from 150 Kg Scrap  

Berhampur:  Students of Government ITI in Berhampur have built up an idol of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose using 150 kg of scrap metal waste. This art from waste sculpture was a homage of the institution to the great freedom fighter on the occasion of his 126th birth anniversary. The six-foot-high sculpture has been constructed by welding up metal wastes like fan bearings, motorcycle chains, nuts and bolts, gears, iron rods, and other scrap materials.

Around 30 students of fitter, electrician, welder, painter and some other trades toiled for 15 days to erect this Netaji sculpture. Some faculty members including the principal of the institute, Rajat Kumar Panigrahy helped the students in their endeavor.

The students collected the scrap materials from electrical workshops and automobile garages in Berhampur.

Berhampur ITI campus is now a tourist destination because of the large number of huge sculptures made from scrap materials. Some of the sculptures made from waste materials on the Berhampur ITI campus have set national, Asian, and world records.
