As per the tradition, earthen garbas have been installed at various places since the beginning of Navla Norta. With the passage of time, now that the pottery business is disappearing, the Prajapati family of Virpur village in Mahisagar district has kept alive the art of making clay garbo.
Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals.The traditional occupation of the Prajapati families involved in pottery is now on the verge of extinction. Clay pots and pans are no longer sold in the cities but buyers are still found in the villages. The basic craftsmanship of pottery has come to a head in the last few years, but the craftsmen of Prajapati Samaj of Virpur village in Mahisagar district have preserved this art even today.
The fifth generation of Bharat Prajapati's family from Virpur has kept the art of pottery alive. As the Navratri festival begins, he has created earthen garbas with innovative designs and colors.
Not only Virpur but also people from the surrounding villages are coming there to buy them. In modern times, Navratri has also been modernized. In Virpur town, the tradition and culture of buying Mataji's Garba in Navratri and lighting the lamp is intact and the place of copper and brass Garba is still very important in Virpur taluka.
