Setting an example of humanity, a man in Assam is using discarded TV sets to make shelters for stray dogs. You read that right!
He built the shelters on December 4.
In the town of Sivasagar in Assam, 32-year-old Abhijit Dowarah is helping these dogs in the winter. As per a report in The New Indian Express, he felt bad seeing how these dogs lived before he created Baator Ghor (street home for the dogs).
“The pets enjoy all comforts but the stray dogs suffer from lack of food and shelter. I thought I should do something for them in whatever little way possible. This led to the creation of the shelters,” he said.
This is not the first time Dowarah has done something like this. He had earlier designed a torch for women's safety and also a gadget for hand sanitisation during the ongoing pandemic.
“Over the past five years, I have created some 50 utility items from scrap. So, people don’t throw away old and unused stuff but give them to me. There were seven old TV sets lying at my two-room residence in Sivasagar’s Phukan Nagar. I thought if I can turn these into the stray dogs’ shelters, they can beat the winter chill,” he added.
