Rangoli


Hello Friends ... I wish you all Happy Pongal..

Pongal is the most popular harvest festival of Tamilnadu. Pongal comes in mid-January every year and marks the beginning of Uttarayan, the Sun's movement northward for a six month period. Celebrations include painting entire house, drawing of kolam, cooking of delicious pongal....

Now you can guess what my part here is....?!? Of course I have started 2 draw kolam yesterday night itself. One with paint in pooja room, one with sunnambu(lime stone) paste in front door and another one with colour powders at front gate. Kolams are believed to bring prosperity to homes and not only meant for decoration purpose. So I love to draw kolam's especially rangoli. Because, I am not good in dotted kolam.

But the Celtic knot design(yellow paint), I have made with the help of dots, because the measurements should be equal in all lines. I got the Celtic Design from the link below


and did some changes.
