Plight of the potters in the rainy season, there is no touch of modernity

Sharifa Begum Shiuli Rangpur Correspondent: There is no one to see the plight of potters in Kumar Para during the rainy season. Pottery is one of the ancient arts. Potters make pottery with potter’s or khiyar soil. Clay pots made of tiles, miniature sculptures, sculptures and even practical technical pottery form a unique form of pottery. During the six months of the rainy season, no earthenware can be made. Earthenware cannot dry without sunlight. So the Kumars now want a touch of modernity. Reviewing the history of human civilization, it is seen that the primitive people made pottery from the primitive and unadulterated material of the earth out of necessity. It is from the construction of pottery that the door to artistic thinking of primitive man is opened. The earthenware has survived as a witness to all the advanced civilizations of the world. Archaeological excavations of ancient civilizations have enriched the history of pottery. If we go to Palpara in South Panapukur of Gangachara Upazila, it is known that Palpara consists of 33 houses. 4/5 people do earth work in each house. They have been selling pottery, pots, pans, pots, pans, elephants, horses, banks, jugs, flower tops, children’s toys and other kinds of pottery since the beginning of the 150th century. Village head Shri Montu Nathpal said, “We can’t do soil work for six months in the rainy season.” Everything made of clay pots and pans is stopped. Can’t dry, burn. Land has to be bought for 40/50 thousand rupees in each season. That soil is not found properly. I sell earthen pots, pans, toys, howdas, etc. from five rupees to one hundred and fifty (150) rupees. The chairman member did not give us any cooperation. I am passing the day with great difficulty. Mrs. Bharati Ranipal from the same neighborhood said, “I work for Hamra Kumar, I can’t make earthen things on rainy days, Raid Utena, Shukpar Paina, eating and drinking with children is very difficult in Geiche. There are people’s representatives in Hummer and they also don’t give any Hummer. Honors student Ananta Chandra Pal said, “We all make pottery in 33 families in Palpara.” But at this time it is very difficult to make and save earthenware. The earthenware items in the house cannot be put on the market for six months because of the roads. About 4 kilometers of muddy road. My appeal to the government is the way Bangladesh is moving forward digitally with the touch of modernity. In that way, if the digital tone of pottery co-operates with Anjam, then the six-month rainy season will come to an end. When Barabil UP Chairman Shahid Chowdhury asked Dwip about this, he said, “Hindu Para in my own ward.” The government allocations that came earlier have been given. Now there is nothing to give, I will actually give the government allocation again. If they make a written request for the removal of earthenware from digital method, I will give it to UNO sir. Sir if any action can be taken. Regarding the digital method of potters, UNO of Gangachara Upazila Ershad Uddin said, there is no digital method of potters yet. I don’t know if it will happen in the future.
