A black velvet curtain, a long shower curtain and a navy curtain are the common curtains in India that are being burnt orange.
A few of them are even going through the fire and are reportedly going to be melted by the sun.
But the situation is more complex, says the Times of India.
“The curtains have a natural colour, but when they get burnt, the natural colour fades.
They are also not visible at night.
In some areas, the curtains have even been burnt,” said S.B. Raju, a photographer who works for a daily newspaper.”
If you have a long curtain, it is possible that the flames will spread inside the house.
It is also possible that they will go out, so you should keep your curtains in a closed position.”
The Times of Indian reported that the curtains in these homes are being left on to burn and that the government is now planning to ban the curtains.
But what about the other curtains?
The Times report quoted an official at the Ministry of Environment and Forests as saying that the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) is looking into the issue.
“We are closely monitoring the situation and will soon take appropriate action,” he said.
“If we find that the curtain in question is burning, it will be brought under control and burnt off, he said, adding that if it continues to burn, then the curtains should be replaced.
