Baripada youth sets out on foot to Bhubaneswar for Alcohol-Free Odisha

Bhubaneswar: In an innovative move, a youth from Baripada town in Odisha has embarked on a journey on foot to spread awareness about the perils of alcohol amongst the millennials as well as the elderly. Seeking an alcohol free state, the youth- Anshuman Das will end his journey at Bhubaneswar after submitting a memorandum to Governor Ganeshi Lal for taking necessary steps in this regard.

Anshuman has always been concerned about the effects of alcohol on human health and society. He also wants the public to become aware about the negative effects of alcohol consumption and convert Odisha to an alcohol free State.

To incorporate this move in a more widespread and effective manner, Anshuman decided to set out on foot so that he can reach out to the public, especially the youth masses personally and make them aware about the perils.

“The society is on the path of destruction. The world we live in is no more in a good condition. Women are getting exploited, youth is going astray, the main reason being alcohol. To avoid this state in future and to bring the youth on the right path so that they can bring progress in society, I have set out on foot to meet the Governor with a strict memorandum,” said, Anshuman Das, the man behind the move.

Das’ padyatra will conclude at Lingaraj Temple in Bhubaneswar on the World Women’s Day (March 8).
