Definition

A metal container, usually a bucket, lined with mud that functions as a stove, using dried cow-dung, coal, and small pieces of wood for fuel. Mainly seen in rural or rustic areas, widely used found in northern India. While its main use is for cooking, it also provides warmth in the harsh winters.

Usage

Lighting a sigri is a herculean task. First of all coal, cow dung, and wood pieces are loaded from the top. A piece of cow dung soaked in kerosene is then lit and inserted through the hole in the side below the iron rods. The sigri is then left in the open air until it stops smoking - once up to temperature, it produces smokeless heat. (With thanks to wikipedia.org).
Sign seen in some train compartments: "No sigris allowed." As if one would want this under a side-berth.
