Shopping for Diya’s

Diwali is just a few days away.
Time to shop for Diya’s.
These temporary shops in Hydernagar, adjacent to the highway, have lots of beautiful Terracota stuff including diya’s in various patterns and designs.
I can spend an hour watching each one of the items there.
Handicrafts have a special place in my heart.

The creativity,  patience of the craftsmen,  detailing on the objects , the colours  and most importantly , the fact that they are made of clay from Mother Earth is what attracts me to them.
