The Bell Maker

DSC_8440

In my recent visit to Nirona in Gujarat, people mistook us for journalists and took us to various houses in the village where they make unique handicrafts. The Khatri family is famous for Rohan painting and the Lohars of the Muslim community make copper coated iron bells. I have written a blog post about it and you can read it here: http://joshimukard.wordpress.com/2014/03/12/two-journalists-in-nirona-rogan-art-copper-bells/.

Here’s an old man from Lohars community demonstrating the craft of making copper bells.
