Caption : VELLORE, TAMIL NADU, 25/11/2017: S.Umapathy (44), a blind potter making earthen lamp lives in Choolaimedu, Salavanpet in Vellore, that is home town of many potters. Eyesight has been fading slowly, lost 100 per cent of vision in last 12 years. Doctors said I was born with progressive vision defect, potter told. He use a wheel made of cement make earthen lamp "Agal vilakku". But due to his vision defect, the sizes may differ but there is other hand to help wife Uma(40) gives finishing touches to the lamps and other corrections and his two sons too. Potter said often gets hurt hand and legs while on working wheels. It will be great help if government gives motorised wheel for his safety and livelihood. I used to make 450 lamps approximately aday. Dark vision does not deter this potter ,He continues to light several homes during the festival of lights. Photo: C. Venkatachalapathy
