Ahead of India's 71st Republic Day, a government school teacher from Amritsar has made a national flag with 71,000 toothpicks.
According to a report in ANI, Baljinder Singh took 40 days to achieve the feat.
"For a long time, I had been thinking of doing something which no one has done before. So, I came up with this idea. I want this to be the longest flag. It took me 40 days to complete the flag," Singh told ANI. "At the district level, we will have a Republic Day celebration. I will try to present my flag on the occasion," Singh told ANI.
Netizens were all praise for the teacher and his unique initiative.
