Creativity can come from anyone and inspiration, from anywhere. This is exactly what this 52-year old head constable from a rural area proves. Posted in Hubli Rural Police station, Chandrakant Hutgi found a way to handle pressure and make his job more interesting by converting the deadly lathi into a beautiful flute and playing a soothing tune on it.
The video was shared by IPS (Indian Police Service) officer Bhaskar Rao, the Additional Director General of Police, Bangalore. No doubt the post became viral and was lauded by netizens.
The 1:05-minute long clip is captioned “Chandrakant Hutgi, Head Constable from Hubli Rural Police station has converted his Deadly Fiber Lathi into a Musical Instrument… we are proud of him…”

These are some rare sights we spot.
The kind of job Policeman are involved in is very hectic & doesn’t allow them to take leaves.
This is innovative. Optimal utilization of available resources.
The stick that fears the criminal also produces music for others.

Wonderful talent! We should recognise such folks time to time. The image of police in public eyes is changing to positive. On lighter note, this gentleman’s lathi charge would be a musical beat 🙂
