    In the video, Papon is offered prasad (offerings) in a SUP bag to which he says, “The prasad is a blessing for us but this prasad in a plastic bag is a curse for us and for the environment. So, I request everyone to stop using SUPs and we should carry a shopping bag whenever we visit a vegetable market, this will inculcate the practice of refusing plastic bags.”

    “This plastic bag is harmful and I request everyone to stop using SUP bags to save our earth,” he added.
