Diversity of Bogura pottery in peril

Pundranagar, the capital of ancient Bengal or present-day Bogura in Bangladesh, is famous for its pottery. Traditional pottery got its fame in the Pal era long back, but now some of the potters community still can be seen here and there in the country including Palpara or Kumaras villages in Bogra. 

Instead of producing diversified earthenware like cooking pot, motka, dhabor, bricks or colourful clay toys and other decorative items, they are now producing only yogurt pots and cups.
