Charcoal fired hot basket known as Kangdi at Chatpal in Kashmir, India
That's how the Kashmiris keep themselves warm. They wear a woolen coat called "firan" and carry this basket called "kangdi" with hot coal in it. The firan is loose enough for the kangdi to fit inside around the stomach or the back. In the freezing cold, this is an extremely effective personal heater. Not very safe, though.
