Bhubaneswar, Nov 14: In a novel tribute to India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru ahead of his 125th Birth Anniversary, 125 differently-abled children have offered roses to his sand sculpture. On the occasion, a 5-foot tall statue of 'Chacha Nehru' was crafted using 50 tonnes of sand by internationally acclaimed sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik at the ongoing Anjali National Children's festival.

"I am honoured to join this unique event with the real heroes to celebrate Nehruji's birth anniversary," Pattnaik said.
