@ kumartuli - customised flower pots

while at kumartuli, i paid a visit to my "tumbri" man.  he makes the shells for the fireworks - flower pots - i make at home for diwali.  i placed my order of 50 for this year, and he made three of his special "motia" shells right infront of me.  these "motia" or "pearled" shells are special and he is one of the few remaining who makes these as they have a re-inforced "pearl" at the mouth from where the fountain of sparkles rises.

the commercial ones look like these

the start
 building the base
 "unfurling" the motia
 giving it the final shape
