sure mOhanaji can get you the books on chandassu, i will be in Portland from July10th to16th and in SFO on july17/18th are you close by?......pass me the titles.
mOhana sir, thank you for the link. It is very interesting!
As many of you might be knowing, I have a great interest in prosody, the art of writing classical poetry, in all Indian languages. In that connection, one of my friends sent me a book on Tamil prosody. I looked at the url ( http://www.thamizham.net ) for it and was looking for other books. In that connection, I found this kOlam book. There are quite a few other books there that might interest others. Of course, if any one of you find any good book in any language on chandas, chandassu, chandam or vritta, vRtta, viruttam, please remember me
A real treasure for kolam lovers , Mohanaji! I wonder when did they published the first edition! (the third edition itself is 110 years old) My MIL wonders how and where did you get this and preserved so nicely. From this we can see that chikku kolam is the traditional kolam of South India. Thank You so much for sharing this precious book:)
Wow, wonderful collection. I see lot of nagabandhas and all other old kolams here. Thanks for sharing this.
Thanks for sharing,
Love is the answer
very nice collections of kolam
very nice book...lovely collections of kolams.....after seeing this i logged out without giving any comments...but something struck me and when i saw d comments in this page.....vidhs idu roooooooombbbbba oooooverppppa....eppa paru enna vambukku izukkureenga....two much three much....hundred muchpaaa...
wow....great treasure of good old sikkus, nagabandhas... i liked Sun & Moon sikku too, thanks mOhanaji for sharing is wonderful collection.
Excellent collection.. Arputha kola Manjari is really arputham.. But very difficicult to try.. As per my assumption our legends like Rajamma ji, Lakshmi ... can def try n succeed..And the most lovable collection of chikku kolam is available like Lala Shop Halwa.. Ppl who has int in chiku kolam can have a great time by trying the creations seen in the book.. But u know what.. Kolam No.77 of Pg no.32, already tried by me n available in my gallerryy.. yeee yappeeee!!! (ipdilam oru vilambaram thevaiya nu rani munumunukuradu en kadula vizhunduruchu.. hehe)
mOhana Sir, Great treasure, indeed! I loved the nagabandanas and the names given for each!
