The artisans were also among the people who were severely affected by this natural calamity. Many of them had to leave their native places to sustain the living of their family. The destruction had forced the artisans to live in the outskirts of the village. Each dawn had its own problems to make the people struggle for their living even more.


This earthquake resulted in the downfall of the handicraft market. The artisans lost their homes, resources, businesses, people, and human capital. The re-establishment led to several turns in their lives. Taking handicrafts further as the source of their living looked impossible. The lost hopes pushed those valuable tools into coffers.
