  • Hanging Lamps from Poompuhar

    Lamps are one of the most loved symbols of the Indian society. They come in various forms, makes and materials; each one different from the other and meant to cater different purposes. A Hindu assembly known as Puja can never initiate without a Deepam. The Indian festival of Deepawali is a time when almost the entire country is covered with Deepak or lamps. Lighting the Deepak Coils is considered similar to cutting the red ribbon. Every Indian function that connects itself to ‘Indian-ness’  starts with the lighting of a deepam by the esteemed chief guests.

    Deepaks add to the good fortune of one’s home. They banish out the bad omens with the light they scatter. They make the negative energy burn off as they replace it with positive energy and simultaneously add to the beauty of the place they are kept.

    Most of us have mostly seen deepaks resting on a table or a puja thali. But Have u ever seen or heard of ‘Hanging Deepaks’?To many of us it may sound new, but quite a few of us might have seen them. In fact we try to think harder, most of us shall realise seeing them ‘in-reality’ or ‘reelity’. Those of us who haven’t seen them in our day –to-day lives can easily remember them swaying to-and-fro in a movie sequence where the protagonist is asking for God’s mercy. When all the temple bells chant together as they oscillate under the influence of the harsh winds.

    Hanging Lamps come in various forms and sizes. They may resemble a standard lamp with a spout and an oval bowl to contain the lamp while they may also be of various shapes or may have many lamps stacking together in a row or column. They are generally made out of brass since brass imparts both beauty and strength. They are the handiwork of artisans that work day and night to give shape to these masterpieces.

    Panjatchara Lamp has 5 lamps arranges one under the other. Each of the lamps is attached to the other with a brass link. The entire setup is connected to a series of links that form a metallic chain. It is a traditional lamp that is worthy enough to find a place in every traditional gathering.
