Potters in Patna gear up for Diwali
The Hindu festival of lights, Diwali has made potters at Patna to roll up their sleeves. The festive season increases their sale of traditional earthen lamps. With changing times, these traditional clay lamps have undergone a major transformation but they wait eagerly for this time of the year. Although potters hope to earn money during the festive season, they also lament that the traditional earthen lamps have nowadays been replaced with wax candles and gel candles.
