Earthen pots please the Goddess

Bonalu Celebrations(1) (1)Earthen pots are dear to the Goddess Mahankali, therefore it is mandatory to use natural pots in the Bonalu festival, say archakas. It is also healthy from hygienic point of view. Cooking in pots, which are free from chemicals, decorating them with turmeric, kum kum and lime is scientifically good for health, say elders. Earthen ware which depicts the life of rural side is losing importance in the traditional festivals. But today pots are replaced by plastic and other coated ones. Devotees are keen on presenting Bonalu in the latest glittering designs. Potters were busy earlier meeting the demand of Bonalu festival as public lifted Bonam well placed atop earthen pots. But it is a thing of the past. And those engaged in the profession are jobless.
