- Sanjib, who prepares the statue, has earlier prepared the mother’s statue with matchsticks and wire.
- The idea of building a statue with drugs and syringes came under lockdown
An artist from Assam has created a statue of Maa Durga with the help of 30 thousand expired medicines and syringes. Dhubri artist Sanjib Basak in Assam has taken two months to prepare this statue. They prepared it from Medical Waste. Earlier, Sanjeeb has also prepared the mother’s statue using matchsticks and wires.
Idea came when medical stores expire medicines were thrown under lockdown
Sanjib works closely with the Disaster Management. He says, I saw medical stores throwing away expired medicines. They were doing this because they were not able to deliver these medicines to the companies during the lockdown. Then I decided that with the help of these medicines and syringes, I will prepare the idol of Maa Durga.
The name was recorded in the Assam Book of Records in 2019
Sanjib says, I talked to Disaster Management about how to reduce this medical waste. Then decided that the statue could be made from it. Sanjib also prepared a 166 kg statue of Maa Durga with electric wires. His name for this was recorded in the Assam Book of Records in 2019.
Sanjeeb has won many awards
Sanjib, 37, is a graduate of Arts but was not a professional artist. Gradually he tried to prepare the statue and it became his hobby. Now whenever they get time, they prepare it. In the last 8 years, Sanjib has also received many awards for making different types of idol of Maa Durga.
Sanjib had also prepared a 166-kg statue of Maa Durga with electric wires last year.
In West Bengal, mother Durga was shown as a doctor and Mahishasura as a corona
Mother Durga is shown under the guise of a doctor in a puja pandal in West Bengal during the coronary and she is seen killing Mahishasura in the form of Coronavirus. Viral pictures of it are becoming viral on social media. The idol has an injection in the form of a trident in the hands of mother Durga, killing the Coronasur.

What a beautiful way to show respect to Corona Warriors- Doctors, nurses, policemen, cleaners and ambulance workers. Mahishasur is Corona virus! How creative ❤️
Hope Ma Durga helps us overcome this pandemic and everyone remains safe and healthy 🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/74EaT9Wuat
