Artiste Ravi Katpadi slips into majestic costume to spread covid-19 awareness

Udupi: Every year on Janmshatami Ravi Katpadi slips into a new avatar — it could be a superhero or even a villain, and goes around visiting every nook and corner of his village, Katpadi in Udupi.

Ravi Katpadi, a laborer from Udupi, like in previous years, has taken up the task of helping the poor children this year by presenting himself in a unique form on the occasion of Srikrishna Janmashtami and like faithful sidekicks, a long line of his most enthusiastic supporters tag along, carrying 5-6 tin boxes to collect whatever money the villagers have to offer.

For Ravi, every Krishna Janmashtami is an occasion for him to do his bit for society and raise money to help children and families by covering their treatments.

This year Ravi too has slipped into the avatar of a demon. He has sought permission from the district administration to spread awareness about COVID-19 and will be doing the same in Udupi on September 10 and 11.

The COVID-19 awareness program by Ravi was inaugurated by Zilla Panchayat member Geethanjali Suvarna. Panchayath Development Minister Enayath was also present on the occasion.
