I woke up for a special day on the farm: pottery-day. People would come to the farm to be part of firing the oven with ceramics they made. It was part of a project to learn them new pottery techniques. They had made water-jars all their life. But ceramic water-jars were replaced by plastic ones, that still looked like the ceramic ones; but were made in mass-production and therefore cheaper. So their source of income had completely dried out. The project was initiated by Padma, who had studied pottery on a school of arts. She had teached the water-jar-makers how to make candlesticks, vases, mobiles and other things that might make some money. The people had dressed themselves in their finest clothes and they had walked for more than 4 hours to reach the farm. It was a special day for them. In the afternoon, when the oven was on fire, some government people came along to see how the project they financed was doing. Well, the project was hot!
