Standing alone in darkness, hoping to last till morning!


Outdoor night camping lantern

Just like in humans there are 2 types in fire – One that burns everything & one that destroys the darkness…



I look beautiful than modern lighting. Am I right..?



A Diya, divaa, deepam, or deepak is an oil lamp usually made from clay, with a cotton wick dipped in ghee or vegetable oils. Clay diyas are often used temporarily as lighting for special occasions, while diyas made of brass are permanent fixtures in homes and temples. Diyas are native to India, and are often used in Hindu, Sikh, and Jain religious festivals such as Diwali. A similar lamp called a butter lamp is used in Tibetan Buddhist offerings.
