The potters who 'shape' destinies!

The potters who 'shape' destinies!
The potters of Dharavi's Kumbharwada will no longer have to deal with the menace of air pollution caused by the smoke-emitting furnaces – thanks to the new smoke-free furnaces which these potters use for making clay plots during festive seasons. The 200-member potter community of Dharavi supplies everything from cooking pots and decorative lamps to flower pots and and clay vessels. Mumbaikars also depend on them to supply lamps for Diwali and kheer pots for Eid. However, these families face health issues such as asthma, burns, and eye problems owing to the use of 'chullas'. However, with te smoke-free chullas, the potters of Kumbharwada can heave a sigh of relief as the process has become more better, easier and faster – also environment friendly!
