Earthen lamps gets takers this Deepavali due to social media blitz


Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Oct 17 2019: Deepavali is just round the corner, there are signs that potters on the outskirts of the city are set to produce more earthen lamps (Diyas) thanks to social media blitz promoting this cause.

Recently there is good demand for Diyas and earthen pots. The profits in this business is not much, loss to is not grave. Diyas and pots made are sold in the city generally.

The clay is procured from Ganjimutt, Pallipadi, Polali and Muthooru. Two loads of clay is sufficient for my requirement for the entire year for one potter. Each load fetches Rs 15,000. However, firewood to bake the finished goods is expensive,  eight to 10 quintals of firewood for baking the pots made of one load of clay is a must.
