My neighbors lit a fire in the middle of their living room floor.
Yes. They did.
Right there on the marble floor, they sat around it like it was a winter evening campfire.
What must the people above have thought when the smoke filled their living room and their toes were toastier than usual?
It seems it was a holiday, Makar Sankranti. But usually, people celebrate by flying kites or taking a dip in the River Ganges. So I don't know what led them to light a fire in the house.
Maybe their heater wasn't working?
It's a mystery.
