Fire in the house

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.

Yikes! I admit being cold enough in India that the thought of lighting a fire in the middle of the room has crossed my mind. But I would have never acted on it of course. Just when you think nothing else could surprise you anymore, guess what? ;)
Ah, India!

Never imagine there's no surprises left. Ha. :)
