My love for lanterns stem from my childhood memories. Lanterns are an integral part of that memory because we lived in a house in a small town in Kerala, this place had no electricity at that time, but we never ever actually felt the lack of it. The dim light of the rustic lantern which we kept on the ‘poomukham’ (or raised verandah in English) shall remain fresh in my memory forever.
We studied under that light, we prayed and played pranks on each other under that light. Those lanterns and the luminous light emanating from it was witness to some of the bestest years of my life. These are some images which I heart, including the header of my blog, also I have a small collection of miniature lanterns with me.
This mini post is dedicated to my love for lanterns.
