Never is there a dull day for this hard working ladyMaking mud pots and selling them is a big business today, as there is a renewed interest in "going back to nature". Those strong mud pots are also used in cooking. Unlike the old times, even a small mud pot costs Rs.150 or more.
I had recently been to the interiors of a surrounding district. The woman in question and her two daughters were so keen in doing their work. She would hardly speak a few minutes. There seemed to be some sort of assured business as I saw her talking to someone about orders.
She would not tell me the size of her business or about customers. But hard work is her passion. All that she told me was that she has a passion for this business which is profitable.
Let us salute such people. In fact, the market is back and there is a growing demand. It is great that such traditional occupations are back with a vengeance.
