The potters of Taleswar village in Bagerhat have clung on to this form of art for over 200 years now and this is still their sole source of income. They have fought tooth and nail with poverty and other obstacles. Albeit this struggle which turned existential, the art has survived. They don’t know how much of this art they’ll be able to hand down to future generations; nonetheless they -- these tenacious fighters -- have kept tunnelling through earth of poverty in search of beauty and art. Salute to them!
