These mudha were recorded in the same residence and they were mostly used outdoors in the front yard of the house. The mudha in the bottom image was especially made for the eldest male member of the family to use while smoking hookah (smoking pipe). Both the mudha were washed once every three months with soap and water to keep them clean.
