Kangris selling like hot cakes
After the season’s first snowfall led to drop in temperature in Kashmir, the demand for Kangri (an earthen hot pot woven around with wicker filled with hot embers) has gone up. Kangris are kept beneath traditional clothing to keep the people warm in chilling cold. Vendors in Srinagar and other parts of Kashmir are selling Kangris of different varieties with prices ranging from J120 to J800. Due to power cuts, these Kangris have maintained their utility in the Kashmir Valley despite the availability of electronic gadgets.
