I have never been able to submit any photos in time for CLICK or I must say I lack creativity while I take pictures. I am sending my lamp under the name 'Nanda Deepa' which means a lamp which gives light 24*7, 365 days nonstop. Usually ever house has a lamp which they worship, here is our lamp for 'CLICK'-Metal event.
