It was "Karva Chauth" - a festival where Indian wives fast and pray for the well-being of their husbands. The lady living next door lighted this lamp under the Curry Leaves plant on our terrace (believe me Mom was furious). But to me, it was nothing more than a possible good shot - except for the red halo around the lamp. Guess couldn't help that - with a shutterspeed of 30 seconds (had to keep it open that long :-P) this was unavoidable.
