Kan­gris sell­ing like hot cakes

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

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.
