With the pandemic still raging on in our country, there have been many who have been extremely innovative. When it comes to masks and ways to practice social distancing, we have been at our creative best.
Now, yet another addition to the never-ending list of such inventions has gone viral that managed to impress the internet. A clip shows a sadhu wearing a rather unique mask that is made out of Neem and Tulsi leaves. It was shared on Twitter by an IPS officer named Rupin Sharma.
"Not sure this mask will help. Jugaad. Still 'Majboori ka naam Mahatma Gandhi.' Necessity is the mother of jugaad. Mask and Medicine," his caption said.
According to the video, this took place in Uttar Pradesh. In it, a man asks the priest about the mask. The former states that it is made out of neem and tulsi leaves. Further, he points out their obvious medicinal purposes. The priest also felt that these masks are far better than the usual surgical and cloth masks as the presence of neem and tulsi can help cure us from any disease.
Till now, the viral video is close to 1000 views on Twitter. Indeed, netizens were quite intrigued by the innovation. "Combination (mask and medicine)," a user was impressed by its dual usage.
