The traditional lamp is indeed a piece of utility in the Indian household. No matter the progress of electricity in our cities and villages, it is considered auspicious to light a lamp somewhere in the house in time for dusk. A ceremony that has emerged out of olden days' habit, lamp-lighting culture has given birth to a whole new genre of art in the subcontinent. Despite its being only a symbolic gesture in this day, its beauty lies in the spiritual meaning it holds and the aesthetics of the same. The sacredness of the peacock to the Indian people, the undulating shapeliness of the valakku, and the dominant gold over silver are all the ingredients you need to add a touch of the Indian to your home.
