Pune Man Wears Rs.2.89 lakh Worth Gold Mask to protect himself from coronavirus – Insiderfolks, From face masks and handkerchiefs to dupattas and other clothes, people around the world use various items to keep themselves protected from coronavirus.
According to the Home Ministry’s “Unlock 2” guidelines, wearing a face mask/face cover is compulsory in public places, workplaces, and during transport.
A man in Pune gave his mask a luxurious twist. Shankar Kurade, a resident of the Pimpri-Chinchwad district of Pune, was wearing a mask of gold worth Rs 2.89 lakh.
Speaking of the gold mask, Kurade said, “It’s a thin mask with minute holes so there’s no trouble breathing. I’m not sure if this mask will be safe.”
Although there is uncertainty as to how effective the gold mask will be, Shankar Kurade and his gold mask have certainly become the town’s talk. In the photos that are shared online, Kurade can be seen wearing a gold mask along with other gold items.
The mask is made of thin gold leaf along with golden threads to tie it and the cost is approximately equal to the cost of more than 175,000 ordinary disposable masks or more than 700 PPEs on the market.
Hundreds of netizens have posted on the images. One said, “Money can buy you anything but common sense,” while another comment read, “For that value, he could have donated so many lavable cotton masks.”
Here is how the netizens reacted:
Shankar Kurade said he had the idea of getting a gold face mask after he saw a video of a Kolhapur man sporting a silver mask.
Kurade ‘s golden mask is another addition to a group of Maharashtra men who are crazy about gold, including Nashik Pankaj Parakh, who owns a 4.10 kg pure gold shirt costing over Rs 1.30 crore, which won him a spot in the Guinness World Records.
