I love buying Gulaks, Indian version of 'Piggy Banks'. Environment-friendly- Gulaks are earthen pots, which have just one opening, enough to drop just one coin at a time. Once the jar is filled and there is no more space for even a coin, the pot is broken. I generally put all my change in the Gulak and once the jar is filled with coins I use the change to buy something for myself. And the first thing I buy from the money is a new gulak. I saw a lot of Gulaks in the market on my recent trip. In the the right part of the photo, you can see the traditional designs of gulaks. In the last few years, the designs have begun more innovative. In front are red colored ones, shaped like purses or women's handbags.
The one, which I had to buy as soon as I saw it, was this elephant shaped one.
