Aurangabad: A team from a government-run Ayurvedic college burned 'dung cakes' at the district administration's press conferees on coronavirus in Osmanabad city in central Maharashtra on Thursday, March 12. The purpose was to demonstrate 'purifying' properties of dung-burning but it had nothing to do with the topic of the press conference, said the district collector. The conference had been arranged at the Collector office. During the press meet, a team of Government Ayurvedic College demonstrated a way to purify air at home. "Instead of incense sticks available in the market, they showed how to purify the air with the help dung cakes and some other ingredients prescribed by Ayurveda," Collector Deepa Mudhol-Munde said. "Though the press meet was about the coronavirus, the demonstration was not related to that," she added.
