Lemon rinds

In a temple, I saw the squeezed lemon rinds used as a base for lighting of batti.

Do you think the person is doing this because of superstition or saving diya by utilising the waste material?


  1. lemon rind for lighting diya!! Never heard or saw that before. Cool. So how did they do it? I mean how can the wick glow ?? was oil still used? Will be interesting to know what others will have to comment on this one Chandrika.

  2. dont know about that .. but it does look good and when it burns maybe the smell too is good


  3. Chandrika,

    Do we ever care for recycling or such? It is former surely.

    Take care
