How about a park in your front yard? This Kottayam man leads by example
Nedumkunnam: Muraleedharan was too bored during the lockdown days and to overcome this boredom he started constructing a mini park in his front yard.
Now, a small park with a fishpond, concrete trees, swans and snake boat stand head high on his 6 cent plot. Near the park he has also constructed a bench and a few flower pots.
Muraleedharan, who was operating a footwear store in Kodungoor, had spent his lockdown days at home.
To relieve his boredom, he took to park construction in which he had no prior experience. He worked on his own ideas. He used raw materials like cement and sand available at home.
After shops opened, he bought paint and made the park colourful.
The fish pond is constructed in such a way that water from the terrace will fall into it making it a rainwater storage tank.
