Shez

is it an ash tray? Oops !! Yes IT IS


**************************SPOILER************************


I asked my parents that why do we have an ash tray in our house when nobody smokes in the house and we even don't allow any visitor to smoke in the house. It is kept in the drawing room at the centre of table without any purpose


Congrats Shez for the solve!!!!! Well played everyone

Maybe you all could mail your disued ash trays to me. I actually smoke but do not own an ash tray, as I don't smoke inside and use a large bucket just outside my back porch. :D
