    Are you familiar with my documentary, “The Working Processes of the Potters of India: Bindapur-A Colony of 700 Potters” film documented in 1979? Please look at my website.

    How do I contact the Bindapur potters, especially Suri Bhan, who helped so much in making the documentary? Is it possible to do so after 36 years?
