4) in summer days, they used to damp long clothes like bedsheets and tie at their doorway, keep buckets under them to gather the water. so that , they would get cool breeze from the doorway and have protection from the sun.they used to drink water from pots.they wore light and light colured clothes. they used to sleep by putting coconut coir under their cots at the verendas .
               in winter seasons, they used to put fire and enjoy the warmth.
