“March is already so hot and I can’t imagine how hotter April would get. Therefore, keeping the well-being of the birds in mind, me and Azzfar Razack came up with this project,” he added.


He further added, “To make these bird feeders, we are reusing the existing oil tins, and creating jobs for craftsmen, taking forward the message Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.:

What inspired Ananth to come-up with this initiative is a post by an IFS officer, Parveen Kaswan regarding the same.
