Jhansi / Bhopal. This time there is a special glow of Diwali in the markets. Markets are out after Corona. Diwali, the festival of lights, may dazzle the city halls with colorful colorful bulbs, but earthen lamps made with faith have a different significance. Diyas have always been in demand on Diwali, but there have been many challenges before the manufacturers of earthen lamps. Its difference is also on the price. In Madhya Pradesh, where the fields and mines were filled with water due to incessant rains, it has become difficult to get soil in Bundelkhand of UP.

Earthen lamps have a different religious belief on Diwali festival. A dimly lit earthen lamp keeps the tradition alive and gives the message of Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya. Due to the survival of this ancient tradition, traditional lamps are being made on chalk in the courtyard of the potters. This year, instead of the Chinese skirting, the demand for earthen lamps is strong, so the ancestral diya maker potters are facing a crisis regarding the soil. Urban expansion has created soil scarcity. Black and clay soil is needed for making a lamp. The effect of its lack is that once the diyas which get 100 of twenty five rupees are getting only 50 and 25 of 100 rupees this time.

Kumbhakar Ramdayal Prajapati, who lives in Khajuri village near Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, says that the work of making ancestral earthen pots and lamps has been done here. This time for the first time the chalk in his courtyard was closed. Ramdayal says that this time it has rained so much that the fields and mines are full of water. This made it difficult for them to get black soil. Because of this, he has come for the first time to buy diyas from another place and sell them on Diwali. They say that they have to pay more money to bring diyas from outside, as well as the loss caused due to breakage in bringing and carrying, it is their compulsion to sell diyas expensive.

Parvati Prajapati, who set up a lamp shop in Bhopal’s Piplani Bazar, says that this time she herself has not made diyas, due to which her profits have decreased. People like earthen lamps. They are buying even when they are expensive, but those who buy 100 diyas are working with only 50 and 25. On the other hand, Lalit Kumhar says that he has bought 1 thousand diyas for 900 rupees. It was not easy to get soil in the village from where he brought the lamps. This is the reason why inflation is visible.

It is difficult to collect only black soil in Bundelkhand
It is difficult to find black soil in Lalitpur of Bundelkhand. This area has been rocky and red soil. Because of this, soil has to be brought here from the farmers’ fields. Earlier, soil was available for free, but now it has to be bought at expensive prices. Suresh Prajapati says that due to continuous rains, digging black and clay soil is a difficult task. Due to this the soil has got less. This time the chalk has turned by bringing some soil from the fields of some farmers. Suresh says that the demand for lamps has also increased more than before, but it is his compulsion to sell these expensive.

On the other hand, Prahlad the potter says that we spend three to four thousand rupees per tractor trolley in transporting soil to the people. This is the reason why diyas are being sold in Lalitpur at the rate of one rupee i.e. 100 rupees per hundred. The cost of big diyas is two rupees per piece in the market.
