Potters, who normally have good business during the festive season, are adversely affected due to coronavirus lockdown this year. Many say that the footfall is far less than what they witnessed during the festive season last year. Pottery, is one of the small scale business giving livelihoods to rural and poor urban families across India. Kumbharwada in Dharavi is known for potters for about a century. About 3,000- 4,000 potter families have worked in Kumbharwada for more than 100 years. This year their sale has been affected by the lockdown severely and hence don't have any hopes for a good Diwali this year.
