Kumhar

Who are they?

The Kumhar are potters who make earthen vessels, water pots, decorative home wares, toys and idols of gods and goddesses. The name Kumhar denotes a maker of pots and pitchers or someone who creates. They are an integral part of Indian society because their creations are an integral part of an Indian’s daily life rituals.

They make idols, statues of famous people and folk deities and animals. They can be found at local markets selling their wares on most days. They have started using terracotta instead of red clay as it can be painted and is less fragile. There is a growing demand for their products in the urban market. This trend is beneficial to the Kumhars as long as they are not exploited by middlemen.

Location

One of the largest castes, they are reportedly spread across 212 districts of India, predominantly in the states of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Gujarat, Maharashtra, parts of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. They are known by different names in each state.

Origin

Each state has its own legend of the Kumhar’s origins. The Maharashtra Kumhar claim that they emerged on earth with the blessing of the Hindu trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma the creator gave them his art, Vishnu the preserver his wheel and Shiva the destroyer, his form. Their first product was a water pot.

In Madhya Pradesh & Uttar Pradesh, they are listed as a scheduled caste (previously called untouchables.) They themselves do not consider themselves as such.

This community has a number of subgroups that vary depending on where they come from. In Uttar Pradesh, there are the Baradia or Baradiya sub-group who carry clay on oxen; the Gadhere subgroup who carry clay on donkeys and the Chakbai (wheel) subgroup.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Kumhar are a landless community who continue in their traditional occupation as potters, with some engaged in animal husbandry and crop farming on a share-cropping basis. Some work as masons and manual labour for a daily wage. Many Kumhar have abandoned their traditional occupation and are employed in government service – as teachers, engineers, doctors, police and armed forces; while others work for private enterprises. Political leadership at various levels is also emerging among them.
When we compare the accounts of 19th and early 20th century ethnographers, we can see that the Kumhar’s traditional occupation has diversified considerably. In addition, there has been a devolving of subgroups and an increasing identity-consciousness across states.

Wheat and rice are staple cereals supplemented by barley, maize and lentils and pulses. Fruit intake is occasional and seasonal. Non vegetarians do not eat beef or pork. Those who follow the Radhasoami sect are strict vegetarians. Alcohol is consumed occasionally.

What Are Their Customs?

Endogamy is practiced at community and subgroup level. Exogamy is practiced among clans as a rule for marriage. However, marriages between subgroups are becoming common. Marriages are arranged by negotiation between the elders of both parties.

Child marriage is becoming less prevalent among the Kumhar. In child marriages, consummation takes place only after the girl has attained puberty at the age of twelve to fifteen. In many cases, especially in rural areas, the bride and groom do not see each other before marriage. Bride price used to be the norm but it has been replaced by a dowry which is in both cash and goods.

The Kumhar are monogamous though polygamy is permitted if the first wife is barren, but such cases are very rare. Junior levirate and junior sororate are recognised and preferred. Remarriage is permitted for widowed persons; remarriage is performed simply by exchanging garlands without the ritual encircling the sacred fire. Though divorce is permissible, it is uncommon as it is looked down upon by their society. Only male heirs have an equal share of the inheritance and the eldest son succeeds as the head of the family.

The literacy rate is very low and child labour is common. Response to developmental aid is mixed – they are encouraged to educate their children, but boys are favored over girls and the dropout rate is high due to social and economic reasons. They use both modern and indigenous medicine and are open to family planning.

What Are Their Beliefs?

The Kumhar are predominantly Hindu. They worship the gods and goddesses of the wider Hindu pantheon and participate in all Hindu religious festivals. Although quite low in the Hindu caste hierarchy, they have access to all the sacred shrines of pilgrimage for Hindus. Families may choose to give importance to a deity. All Hindu workmen, including the Kumhar, regard the tools of their trade as the cause of their prosperity and worship them as such.

Collectively, the Kumhar worship an overwhelming number of local and regional deities for an equally amazing variety of reasons. For example, in Himachal Pradesh a provincial deity called Guga is propitiated for eight days all over the state. Nahar Singh – the whistling deity who lives in the pipal (Indian fig tree) is considered to be a great benevolent god and benefactor of all. In Haryana a regional deity is worshipped for the fulfillment of wishes. In Uttar Pradesh the Kumhar revere Mahadeva, another form of Shiva and worship the potter’s wheel on Diwali (Festival of Lights). In Himachal Pradesh, the god of their choice is Vishwakarma (the great architect of the universe.) They observe a three day fast when they do not make any pots. In Maharashtra the Kumhar worship Sant Gora Kumbhar (White Saint Kumhar), the god Vitthala (an aspect of Vishnu) and goddess Yellamma. In the desert state of Rajasthan the main deity of the Kumhar is Surya Deva (Sun god) as well as Bhairava (a particularly fearsome incarnation of Shiva).

Some Punjabi Kumhar are Sikh while a few, as in the Union Territory of Chandigarh, are Muslims. There are Catholic Kumhars in the state of Goa which is chiefly Christian.

What Are Their Needs?

Practical needs are literacy, economic self-sufficiency and health care.

  1. Pls correct your site only mahar kumhar included in sc list only in three four district of Madhya Pradesh. Not in all Madhya Pradesh. Kumhar are not comes in scheduled caste in uttar pradesh. Please read ancient time ved purans shalivahan stories and chak puja. Kumhar, Prajapati are respectable caste. You are mentioning wrong. I think you are deliberately written this in your website. Please dont make fool society. Kumhar, Prajapatis comes under OBC category and is a medium or higher caste. In south India mostly kumbhar caste worked as priest, pujari. Please gain full knlwledge then write such articles.

    • Reply to Wikipedia blocker/site creater & other english historian & their agents, you are those people who shuck the blood of Kumhar community & other people, Tell me where in the Manusmiriti, Kumhar & sunar caste mentioned shudra. Why in each region of India cobbler (chamars) are 100 to 1000 times more then Kumhar community, tell me?. Where in Hinduism/shastra- labour services taken from donkey/moles are considered unclean whereas Lord Shiva onece take for some time a gesture/birth like donkey to show the world that no animal is inferior ?. All four Verna orignates from Prajapati( Viraat Manav or King or Thakur), then when hinduism or Hindu ritual system gave Kumhar a surname Prajapati(a Viraat Manav) then how they are shudra whereas Hindu ritual system ranked them Kshatriya(King).
      Dear ealier Janeu(sacred thread) firstly had only allowd to Kumhar community alongiwth Brahmin to wear.
      Caste is a very senstive issue, You wikipedia blocker/and this site creater and other english historian people and their agents who used to shuck the blood of this poor holy kumhar caste, The Indian constitution does not permit people like you to write anything on caste which hurts the people and affects their status in the society, therefore, legal action against you including a little knowledge holder historians(agents of britishers) will be taken under Information & technology Act and under various provisions of the constitution of India.As due to you people Kumhar community people are renouncing this holy profession and you people are used to create infefrioty complex among people of this holy caste..
      You people gave many other 90% brahmin, cultivators, many other forwarding casts a shudra(untouhables rank) or status. You propogating the britishers historian philosophy of divide & rule.
      Brahmin are of two types upper (clean) & middle (so callled unclean), but now they used to intermarry with each other because, in fact they are one.
      For higher caste brahmins, all castes are unclean wheather they are Rajput(King), Sunar, Lohar, Vaish(trader caste) etc, Higher caste brahamin are prohibited to take food or water from King (all types of Rajputs or Prajapati), Sunar, Lohar, vaish & shudra castes. But, now this tradition has been relaxed by the Brahmins.
      Manusmirity mentioned about Iron work, gold work, vaish work Badi work, leather work, dom work, julah work, Turi work, Mali work, cultivation work etc and about their verna status..
      All dominating majority castes even cobblers(chamers) are now considered themselves superior to Kumhar (minority holy community). You shudra mind above mentioned people ranked Kumhars below to untouchables.
      There are two type of verna system i.e. according to Hinduism/brahmincial system & another one Britishers verna system which is based on malafide intention to break India and you people are the followers of Britishers verna system which is absoloutely anti to Hinduism. According to Britishers no one is Kshatirya in Hinduism even Rajputs(in whole India), but Hindu Verna system considered Rajputs, Kumhars, Sunar, Jhinwar,Jaats, Gjurjar,Yadav(Ahir), Nair, Bunts, Raju and many other kshatriya castes of India “Kshatriyas(Kings casts).

      • Lohar work(Iron work)=Gold work=a labour work or servant taken from donkey/moles according to shashtra are equal. To work with Kum means Bhumi is considered superior to liron/gold work according to Manusmiriti . In Himachal Pradesh in several Hindu Swarna Devta Temples/Shakti Peeths, . Kumhars are the priest/Pujaries and are considered at par with Brahmins.The Angiras gotra higher caste brahmin used to visit Satrol village of Sati where members of Kumhars community are the purjaris In several places Kumhars are the Lambardars/Zamindars. Historically in Himachal Pradesh Kumhars are considered anderkee or swarana caste. The higher caste Brahmins accept Kachha & Pakka food only from Kumhar community members. In most of the Districts. of India Kumhars are very minority community and only 0.01% of whole population of India and many other communities including other artisian castes are 100 to 1000 times more than Kumhar community members. Therefore, most of the people does not know the real identity of Kumhar community and have many illusions about identity. Pottery is the biggest industry of the past run by the elite people. According to hinduism Pot is worshipable, Chaak is worshable and Kumahars are also woshipbed like Thakur(God) in some places by vaish community. Historians have to first deeply study the Manusmirity, then write about the verna of potters & other coultivaing caste. Moreover, Kumhars are from kshatriya origina in Hindu verna hiarachy and are swarna according to Hinduism and Hindu verna system.

          Turkha(Gaderia or gadhera) Kumhars who is the master of Swa-Ashwa(donkey servant) are very poor people, they are not considered untouchalbes by Hindu shastra or Manusmriti.

          In hindu shatra, neither Swa-Ashwa(Donkey) is impure nor his hairs/dungs made of grass/grains are impure.
          The Turkha Kumbhkars needs economic upliftment, they are considered swarna in casts based census w.e.f. 1901 to 1931 in british era and are kshatriya in Hindu ritual system.

          The people wrote on self explanatory basis or on hearsay basis which is wrong.

      My dear Manusmiri does not provide Scheduled casts status to Kumhar(Prjapati community). Therfore, Prajapti(Kumhar) will never come under SC/ST category in UP/Bihar/Orissa.

      Kumhar Prajapti are general-cum-obc in all 29 states & union territories and only 0.4% sc who are not from the original Kumhar(Prjapati) community and are not allowed to work on holy chaak.

      Moreover, Gold work(unclean), Iron work(unclean) ranked with untouchalbes castes(mentioned in the Manusmiriti.

Please correct the wrong article written above. Kumhar are the ancient caste and according to Ved, Purans and Upnishad kumhar are the origin from Brahamin father and kshatriya mother. In Uttar Pradesh kumhar does not comes in the list of sc, they comes in OBC list. to publish such types of articles please go through all the facts, then written such types of articles.

  4. In my opinion, the writer of this website has little knowledge about the Kumhar Caste, which is regarded as “Prajapati” in over India. When there was no Varna, the Prajapati was there. It is true that the Kumhar (Prajapati) is a respectable caste and who have deep knowledge of Puranas, Vedas and Upnishdas regarded the Prajapati above Brahmins. It is advisable, please do not look at the present picture of the Prajapatis but to attain deep knowledge about the Prajapatis from Vedas especially from Yajur Veda at the first. Maharaja Shalivahana was also a Kumhar. Kumhar are listed under the “Other Backward Classes”, not under Scheduled Castes and never treated as untouchables in the society. In many old and famous temples, located in Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan, a Kumhar/Prajapati can only be a priest and not a Brahmin.

  5. Dear as i read some comments on Kumhar caste some are true and Some are false.As my views according to Hindu Shastra mentioned Three Gods (BRAHAMA,VISHNU&MAHESH).THEY worshiped by all over india.For your kind information Prajapati Daksha was the son of Brahma and Prajapati Daksha Daughter Sati Marriage with Shiva.so two out of Three Gods are our ancestors and you told we Untouchable.please correct this.

Where in Hinduism/shastra- labour services taken from donkey (shudra animal) are considered unclean whereas Lord Shiva onece take for some time a gesture/birth like donkey to show the world that no animal is inferior ?. All four Verna orignates from Prajapati( Viraat Manav or King or Thakur), then when hinduism or Hindu ritual system gave Kumhar a surname Prajapati(a Viraat Manav) then how they are shudra whereas Hindu ritual system ranked them Kshatriya(King).
          Dear ealier Janeu(sacred thread) firstly had only allowd to Kumhar community alongiwth Brahmin to wear.
          Caste is a very senstive issue, You wikipedia blocker/and this site creater and other english historian people and their agents who used to shuck the blood of this poor holy kumhar caste, The Indian constitution does not permit people like you to write anything on caste which hurts the people and affects their status in the society, therefore, legal action against you including a little knowledge holder historians(agents of britishers) will be taken under Information & technology Act and under various provisions of the constitution of India.As due to you people Kumhar community people are renouncing this holy profession and you people are used to create infefrioty complex among people of this holy caste..
          You people gave many other 90% brahmin, cultivators, many other forwarding casts a shudra(untouhables rank) or status. You propogating the britishers historian philosophy of divide & rule.
          Brahmin are of two types upper (clean) & middle (so callled unclean), but now they used to intermarry with each other because, in fact they are one.
          For higher caste brahmins, all castes are unclean wheather they are Rajput(King), Sunar, Lohar, Vaish(trader caste) etc, Higher caste brahamin are prohibited to take food or water from King (all types of Rajputs or Prajapati), Sunar, Lohar, vaish & shudra castes. But, now this tradition has been relaxed by the Brahmins.
          Manusmirity mentioned about Iron work, gold work, vaish work Badi work, leather work, dom work, julah work, Turi work, Mali work, cultivation work etc and about their verna status..
          All dominating majority castes even cobblers(chamers) are now considered themselves superior to Kumhar (minority holy community). You shudra mind above mentioned people ranked Kumhars below to untouchables.
          There are two type of verna system i.e. according to Hinduism/brahmincial system & another one Britishers verna system which is based on malafide intention to break India and you people are the followers of Britishers verna system which is absoloutely anti to Hinduism. According to Britishers no one is Kshatirya in Hinduism even Rajputs(in whole India), but Hindu Verna system considered Rajputs, Kumhars, Sunar, Jhinwar,Jaats, Gjurjar,Yadav(Ahir), Nair, Bunts, Raju and many other kshatriya castes of India “Kshatriyas(Kings casts).

          • Buffalow, donkey etc. except holy cow are ranked shudra animals who are used for milk and Labour services. Pottery is traditinaly a swarna profession in Hinduism. Therefore, 96% potters (Kumhars who make holy pots on holy chaak) are pure and swarna and other 4% are those who are Koli(sc) & other minal casts who are not allowed to make pots on the holy chaak and not have the religious rights like holy pure kumhars and ranked shudra.
            Pottery is the biggest indusry of the past and holy pots are used by all highers casts for cooking, drinking and for worship in holy festivals and occassions.

    • There is a tradition in Vaish(wealthy community) who used to on fast during the Basra days of Adi Shakti Maa Durga Ambe Sheetla Maa. They used to offer different dishes(veg.) to Adi Shakti Maa Ambe Sheetla Maa and holy potter family. Holy Kumhars are an Ishwaria(God or Thakur) Jatti Verga -only backward in numbers game.

He is on the anti Kumhar/Prajapati community compaign. Holy Kumhars/Prajapti are general-cum-obc in all 29 Indian States & 7 unition terrirtory. Only 0.4% are the Scheduled caste who are not from the orignal Kumhar community and have different technique to make pots.Kumhar are not shudra according to Manushmriti. The Iron work(unclean work) & gold work(but not shudra) is ranked with untouchables in Manusmriti. Lohar, Sunar,vaish& Brahmin, King, Dumna, Chammar, Julah etc. casts are mentioned in the Manusmiriti, But it is strange that holy Kumhar/Prajapati casts is not mentioned in the Manusmiriti. Therefore, Kumhar community are traditionly swarna and hence, stayed in U.P. by the Hon’ble Court.

    The holy pure Kumhar/Prajapati(Viraat Manav or King or God caste) are traditionaly a swarna community, they will never come under SC/ST. Therefore don’t put wrong numbers in the mind of common people and don’t make fool.

  50. Mr. Jeanny Auboyer in his work Daily Life in Ancient India(1965) stated that and I quote, “Both the Kings suit and the army were naturally recruited from among their caste, but not every Kshatriya exercised a Military calling. Many Kshatriya were authorised to take up craft or trade rather then gaining their living in professional warrior”.
    Therefore, Kumhar(Prajapati or Raj-janya) are those Kshatriyas who were authorised to take up craft or trade of holy swarna profession pottery rather then gaining their living in professional warrior.
    The surname Verma or Verman, Rana, Raje, Pal or Paul, Wodeyar, Kumawat, Prajapati(Raj-janya), Rao and Singh etc. are ritualy used with Kumahar Community and the Kumhars are from Kshatriya origin in Hindu Verna Hiarachy.

    Kumhars/Prajapati are general-cum-obc in all 29 states and union territories of India i/c Bihar & Orissa and only 0.4% scheduled castes who are not from the original Kumhar/Prajapati Community. The holy Kumhar/Prjapati are traditionaly a swarna caste(according to shastra or Manusmiriti). The proposal/question was of 2012(congress period) and accordingly rejected at that time as holy Kumhar/Prjapati are traditionaly a swarna caste(according to shastra or Manusmiriti) much superior to Iron work(unclean) & gold work(unclean but not shudra) who ranked with untouchables according to Manusmiriti. The labour work taken from moles/donkey and Scheduled caste or shudra about Kumhar/Prjapati community are the wrong numbers of PK film which were put in the mind of common people by the narrow minded people since long.
    We all Kumhar Prajapati(Raj-Janya) are from the ancient Kshtriya stock. Therefore, I urge my all community members throughout India or world to get united against these narrow or negative minded people who are on the anti Kumhar/Prajapati community compaign. Kumhar/Prjapati on very big place in the Hinduism.
    Jai Hinduism & Jai Hind.

  51. I am fully statisfied and agreed with the comments of Shri Santosh Verma. Now we do not have to spoil our time to find whether Kumhar/Prajapati/Kumawat/Kumbhkar are same or seperate caste and whether our caste is touchable or untouchable. Now this is time to assemble with unity to prove our caste as high as in the ancient time. First of all, We have to provide better education to our children. Secondly, we do not have to push them to do labour/casual work even the absence of satisfactory source of income. Third, we have to support our children in their tangles.

    Sub: Reservation and minority sentence making: Weaker to nation, Blind to constitution, Producing injustice among the citizen. This is dangerous for national future etc.

    Respected Sir,
    This is known that the Indian administrations are depending on the Democratic system which is best on the earth. Democratic administration is always favourless and not favouring on base of cast, religion, province etc. This is moral duty of every government making strong to the nation, constructing the favourless and justice-full image among the citizen.

    This is surprising that our Centre government and all state government are not caring about justice, morality favour less administration for their citizen. This is a slow poison for Soverginity and dignity of the nation. Please find few sentences which are indicating true as mentioned below:

    Reservations
    1-Reservations are empowering differences among citizen
    2-Reservations are killing national talent and skill
    3-Reservation axing to entire nation in various form: 1- Education. 2- Employment. 3- Promotion. 4- Election.
    4-Reservations are Producing: Vote- banking system, corruption, inefficiency, etc..
    5-Reservations are pushing back to the nation in form of: Slow development, negative brother-hood, un-honesty, loose decision making power
    6-Ignorance’s of educational value, talent and skill are very dangerous for the nation.
    7-The vote banking system is an Abuse for the respected constitution as well as to the entire government.

    The every nation has required good education, talent and skill about their citizen. But in our country, the respected government are acting just opposite. The reservations as SC, BC and General have deep place inside of the Indian constitution.
    The reservations are axing to entire nation in various form as Education, Employment, Promotions, and Election etc.
    Education: The lower percentage in admissions are axing to those student who have higher percentage but unable to get the needed admission.
    Employment: Quality employees are needed to every administration because they have talent and skill. The talented and skilful candidates can develop to the nation in various ways. Promotions: The promotions of employee are needed on ground of work performances, efficiency etc.
    Election: Indian government electing to the public representative on ground Reservation.
    Reservations are axing at: developments. 2-Reservations are leprosy for administrative body.
    Produce of reservations: Vote- banking system, corruption, inefficiency, etc..

    Bad effect:
    The reservations are pushing back to the nation in form of slow development, negative brother-hood, un-honesty, loose decision making power, reservations are empowering differences among the citizen etc.. Ignorance’s of our government by effect of reservations: educational value, talent and skill. It is very dangerous for our respected nation. The citizen of our country is losing by health and wealth. The vote banking system is an Abuse for the respected constitution as well as to the entire government.

    Minority: The sentence is indicating that the few people are not trusting in the law and order of the government. Minority is not favouring to majority. Minority is not trusting in the nation. Minority is like reservation. Minority is dangerous for national sovergenity and dignity. Minority is governmental guest in the nation.

    Slathering of Cow needed to ban:
    Cow is a natural milk producer animal. The milk of Cow is supreme for human health. The milk of Cow is a natural gift of God for mankind on the earth. Killing of Cow is destroying the natural boon of nature which has boon to human being.

    The cow was fully protected in time of: Shri Ram and Shri Krishna, Shri Chandragupta Maurya, Shri Ashok Samrat, Shri Gautam Budha, Shri Mahavir-ji, Shri Vikramditya Maharaj-ji and Shri Chatrapati Maharaj Shiva-ji.

    The Cow was not protected in time of: Rawana, Kansha, Aurangzeb, Mugaliya Shahsan and British government because we were slave.

    We Bhartiya (Indian, Hindistani) are staying in this country in numbering of nearly twelve (12) millions. And Ten (10) million are interested to ban the killing of Cow. But nearly less than two (2) million are interested for slathering of Cow. This is strong violation of Democracy.

    I am an ex Publisher/ Editor/ Printer of a publication which was published from Mumbai, Maharashtra in the year 1993- 2008. So that, making a new political party for restricting (Reservation, Minority and Cow slathering) through the administrations of state. The party is waiting to fight the election of forthcoming election 2017 U.P.. So, interested citizen please join us.

    The respected citizen may contact us for membership.

    • My dear Surya Parkash,
      I am agree with you, there are two types of Kumawats, one i.e. Kumawat(shilpi) or second Kumavat Kumahar

      However, I read the obc list of Rajasthan where at Sr. No.36, both Prajapti Kumhar and Kumawat clubbed as 36(a) &36(b), not at SR. No. 36 & 37.

      Further Kumawat(means protector & Thakur)and Prajapati(means Trimurti, Prajpati Vishnu, Prajapati Brahma, Prajapati Shiv and other 26 Prajapaties I/c Prjapati Manu, also means Protector, Virat Manav & Thakur).

      Prjapati firstly mentioned in the Vedas, Prajapati means also Raj-janya of Vedic period who were later on called Kshatriya or Verma. Rajanya or Prajapati are the Kings who were elected by the common people, they are the part of the Vedic Gantantra.

      I am being a Kshatriya Kumhar/Prajapti urge all the Kshtriya of Hinduism including you Kumawats to get united against the sudra mind ideology of English historian and their agents who are on the path to break our beloved Hinduism.

      Further, we are those Kshatriya who renounced the military callings and adopts the craft/trade as holy profession for livelihood.

      According to Mansumriti, Kumhar(Bhumi work) is considered much superior to Iron(unclean work) & Gold work(unclean work).

    Prajapati (God Caste) means Trimurti i.e. Prajapati Vishnu, Prajapati Brahma, Prajapati Shive I/c Prajapati Manu and 26 other Prajapatis and also means Thakur & Protector.

    In vedas Prajapti are considered Raj-janya who were elected in democratic way by the common people to rule. Later on these Prajpaties or Raj-jan or Rajanya were called Kshatriya or Verma.

    Some Kshatriya renounced their military callings and adopt holy craft/trade like pottery(Bhumi work)etc. In purans, it was mentioned that firstly King Praikshta had made the first pot on holy chaak and give this technique to the world. Pottery(Bhumi work) is the biggest industry/trade of the past run by the elite Kshatriya people.

    I am being a Kshatriya urge all the Kshatriya caste in Hinuism like you Kumawats to get united against the new or old britishers and their agents who adopts the policy of Divide & Rule and used to weakening our Great Religion Hinduism.

    Moreover, in Manusmriti Pottery(Bhumi work) is considered much superior to Iron work(unclean work) & Gold work(unclean work) according to Manusmiriti.

    I urge all the Kshatriya of the Hinduism to get united including you KUmawats against the new or old brisheres and their agents who are against our great religion Hinduism.

    Moreover, According to Manusmriti Pottery(Bhumi work) is considered much superior to Iron work(unclean work) & gold work(unclean) according to Manusmiriti

    Pottery(Bhumi work)

  60. Prajapatis are Kshatriyas who are Descendents of Daksh Prajapati ( Who is King – Kshatriya ) – They should belong to Kshatriya only, When no cast system is there Prajapatis ruled the society by which I can conclude we are in Kshatriya clane only – we can be comes under Kumbhar caste but Kshatriya is always Kshatriya not shudras.

  61. If Prajapati become untouchable then whole Hindu caste system will be untouchable, Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishyas and Shudras all becomes untouchable.According to my knowledge when varna system started he gave importance to make pot work because – the storage of food and some other important things can be made which will be use full to the human survival It doesn’t mean that Daksh Prajapati is Potter we give importance to pot making but King is always King (Whole caste System comes from King Daksh Prajapati but Prajapati’s are not Kshatriyas this is unfare ) – No more questions and arguments who all having the surname with Prajapati they will be Kshatriya Clane only – Live example is in Daksh Prajapati Mandir, Kankhal , Haridwar ( In South Indian You can see the Daksh Prajapati idle with Veerabhadra )

  62. Brother Hari, I am disagree with you on some point. As per Veda & Prajapati(Republicans), Prajapati Vishnu Bhagwan was elected unanimously the Prajapati or Rajjan or Rajanaya by the all subjects & Rishis in North Bharat Bhumi and thereafter Prajapati Brahma, Prajapti Rudras, Prajapati Manu, Prajapati Daksha & all other Prajapaties were elected unanimously. Therefore all above Prajapaties including Kumhar Prajapati are the decendents of Prajapati Vishnu Bhagwan

  63. Who says Kumbhar (Prajapati) are the lower caste. Might be the author is ignorant of Vedas and Indian Myth. Only with the pot made by Kumbhar prasad can be cooked and served to Lord Jagannath in Puri which is considered the doorway to heaven. No marriage ceremony can proceed without four pots being placed (considered as Demi gods) at four corners of marriage mandap. Prajapati don’t place such pots because they themselves are demigod. Prajapati are considered the high and holy Brahmins in Myth..Now coming to Prajapati in present INDIA, we are scattered all over India. We dominate wherever we go..the sad part is we have lost ourselves. I never wanted to know about origin of my community in Odisha. Because there is no one to tell me. We are not the back Ward people.. We have the ability.. I would like to share my part of the story. both my parents are uneducated and we are BPL category.. I decided to study. I managed to come 10 th in the state. after that so many Kumbhar boys have managed to excel with their studies.. IITians are even coming from the village..So you can imagine how capable we Kumbhar are..

  64. Yes, Infact we the prajapaties belongs to higher class people but we have been discriminated by other so called higher class people in getting our political ,economical right. Our tradinational work has been ruined by various other industry like plastic , silver ,iron etc. We must unite to demand to save our traditional work and its development. We must be given preference in getting higher education either medical or engineering to gain our lost glory.
