The Craft of Copper Bell Making:  The practice of copper bell making is widespread in India and is carried out by various communities and artisans across the country. However, some regions and communities are particularly known for their expertise in this craft. In the state of Uttar Pradesh, the Moradabad district is famous for its brass and copper bell making industry. The artisans who practice this craft in Moradabad are known as "Kansaris." They belong to the Muslim community and have been practicing this craft for generations. In the southern state of Kerala, the artisans who make copper bells are known as "Kshetrias." They belong to the Vishwakarma community, who are traditional metalworkers and artisans. In the northeastern state of Assam, the Bell metal industry is concentrated in the Hajo area. The artisans who practice this craft are known as "Ghoshes" and "Dhakis." They belong to the Ojha and Saikia communities and have been practicing this craft for centuries. Other states in India where copper bell making is practiced include Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Rajasthan. In Tamil Nadu, the artisans are known as "Kalaris" and belong to the Vishwakarma community. In Gujarat, the craft is practiced by the Lohar community, while in Rajasthan, the artisans are known as "Kansariyas." The artisans use traditional hand tools such as hammers, chisels, and specialized stamps and the bells are dented and beaten with a hammer to get the perfect pitch. The bells are then finished using a process called "tempering," which involves heating and cooling the metal to improve its strength and durability.
