 Global Warming to be Depicted in Sand Sculpture
A 7- feet structure has been created by renowned sand sculptor Sudarsan Pattnaik on Puri beach of Odisha, depicting climate change to draw tourists' attention towards global warming.

In his creation, that took around 5 hours to complete, Pattnaik portrayed scorching sun blazing down over a habitation.

Tourists at the beach supported the artiste's attempt to create awareness about climate change and global warming.

"We should promote such issues because due to global warming we are facing lots of problems such as climate change," Archana Devrash, a tourist said.

Pattanik, who has represented India in over 50 international sand sculpture championships, said, "The sea-level is rising. In Odisha, it is very difficult to come out during the day due to the scorching sun."
