Eco friendly Business Ideas- Part 1:
Kulhars may have been in use in the region for the past 5,000 years, since the Indus Valley Civilization. A kulhar (Hindustani: कुल्हड़ or کلہڑ) or kulhad, is also known as shikora. Shikora is a traditional handle-less clay cup from North India and Pakistan that is typically unpainted and unglazed, and meant to be disposable.
The most interesting feature of kulhar is not being painted and that differentiates a kulhar from a terra-cotta cup. The kulhar cup is unglazed inside out. Since kulhars are made by firing in a kiln and are almost never reused, they are inherently sterile and hygienic.
Bazaars and food stalls in the Indian subcontinent traditionally served hot beverages, such as tea, in kuhlars, which suffused the beverage with an “earthy aroma” that was often considered appealing. Yoghurt, hot milk with sugar as well as some regional desserts, such as kulfi (traditional ice-cream), are also served in kulhars. Since kulhars are manufactured by small rural kilns, this would assist in boosting rural employment.
Do this again, take it as a business idea. Produce it locally, make it a supply chain or explore the online market that is all up to you. Just do it because it is future. This will surely boost rural employment. You can also group people together and become their investor.
Let’s be kind to Earth and the people living on it.
All the best for a startup. Looking forward to seeing you in future. If this article was of any help to you, please respond in the comment box.
