As people are turning to their hobbies during the ongoing lockdown, a student used the time to develop his terrace garden by reusing articles made of plastic. Karthik Chauhan, a class 8 student from Delhi, recycled plastic bottles for pots and used kitchen waste as fertiliser for the plants and vegetables.
The video of the terrace garden is doing rounds on the internet in which Karthik can be heard explaining the efforts made to create it. He says that the use of kitchen waste not only reduced the amount of garbage to be handled by municipal authorities but the relatives and neighbours also got inspired and implemented a similar process for their terrace garden.
A Twitter user named Mohit Chauhan posted the video saying his nephew actively worked to maintain and develop his terrace garden during the COVID-19 lockdown. The video has garnered over 17,000 views within a few hours and netizens are showering praise on the student for admirable effort.
