Per old Indian mythology the Kumhar are offspring of Lord Braham (Prajapati). This is why in some places in India the Kumhar use Pajapati / Prajapat as a surname according to Indian caste system. Ancient Indian culture cannot be deciphered without acknowledging Kumhar.
The Kumhar can be found throughout India by different surnames: Verma, Kumhar, Prajapat, Prajapati and Kumawat.
The Kumhar's livelihood is making earthen pots. It is very difficult for a Kumhar artisan to maintain his existence with kumbhkala.
They claim to be the first inventors of the wheel / cycle. The Kumhar use it to make earthen utensils. The main profession of this cast is to make earthen products. Historically their main way of earning income has been earthen products and agriculture. They are very honest people and make their livelihood by hard work.
The Kumhar are generally Hindu and pray to the Lord Shiva, Godess Mother(Mata). They believe in god, highly spritual, loveable, honest and hard working. In general the Kumhar are loving people.
The Kumhar need education and support for their kumbhkala.
