The age old Oil Lamp of Kerala

Older days of Kerala, have witnessed the kerosene lamps ('mannenna vilakku') in their nights.There was no proper electric connection  in the district years back.At that time people used different kind of lamps for lightning their houses. The kerosene lamps made of brass was such a common thing.Today also there are remote villages which are still making use of these lamps.
On my visit to a old 'tharavadu'(ancestral home) in Kerala, I found one such lamp.
