Kumbharpara - Bastar, originally uploaded by Feroze Babu.

Kumbharpara is a small village near the Kondegaon town in Bastar. As the name suggests it is a village of potters. They start their works early in the morning; making pots on the wheel, drying and baking them indigenously developed furnaces. Baked pots with ethnic and ornamental designs are everywhere. Women and children carry pots on their heads and go to fetch water in morning itself. Male folk, when they are not working at the wheels, carry the pots in clusters and go out to see them in local bazaars.
