Neembu Mirch Lemon N Chillies
Lemon and green chillies tied on the doorways of shops, business establishments and houses is a common sight in India. Lemon and green chilly tied on a thread are hung outside the door to keep Alakshmi, or Jyestha, who is considered inauspicious.
Alakshmi is the sister of Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of fortune and prosperity. Alakshmi brings poverty and misery.
Alakshmi likes sour, pungent and hot things. Therefore shopkeepers, merchants and people tie lemons and green chillies on the doorways of their shops and homes so that Alakshmi will only come up to the door and eat her favorite food and satisfy her hunger and leave without entering the shop or house.
It is believed that after consuming lemon and green chillies, Alakshmi loses her urge to enter the house or shop. She will turn around without casting her malevolent eye.
