Pandemic Effect: Diyas Made Out Of Cow Dung Are On Demand

Charpali: Innovations are second to none – ask Kailash Mahakur, a resident of Charpali in Odisha. With Diwali around the corner, Mahakur is busy making diyas out of cow-dung which will be eco-friendly and easy to dispose of. This new art has been conceived in the wake of the ban on crackers because of the pandemic.

According to The New Indian Express, the 35-year-old feels it is a potential alternative. Mahakaur owns a dairy farm with eight cows whose dung is used in a sustainable manner. He got the idea after watching a video on the internet recently. Around 13 people are slogging it out under him to meet the demands of such diyas. Mahakaur is getting bulk orders from the districts of Sambalpur, Bargarh, Jharsuguda and Deogarh. After Diwali, Kailash also plans to supply diyas in several temples in the region.

“Each of the workers earns around Rs 200 by working for 5 to 6 hours daily. On an average, more than 5,000 diyas are made every day. I sell these diyas at a nominal Rs 30 for 30 pieces. Usually, diyas made of clay are hard to dispose of. However, the cow dung diyas burn into ashes once they run out of oil,” he said.

And he makes a point. “Majority of the cattle farmers rear hybrid jersey cattle for the purpose of getting milk. However, they are unaware of the utilities they can derive from indigenous breeds of cow. Cow dung and urine of the indigenous breed can be used in various ways and I have been experimenting it for several years,” he concluded.
