CLICK: June 2009 Stacks
I took this picture today to send it to this month's CLICK: Stacks, hosted by Jugalbandi.
This is a common sight in India. It is believed that this string of lemon and chillies wards off any evil. Commonly found hanging from lorries (large trucks), this reflects the myriad colours of Indian culture. The authentic Indian version is a yellow lemon with green chillies, but mine is custom made according to what is available here! If I had attempted to give it the traditional look, it would've ended up looking like a humungus replica as the lemons and green chillies here are, well, let's just say, really bigger versions :)
