Let's get romantic - Feb 14

February 14th! A day most romantic people look forward to. Many of you might exchange flowers, chocolates, and/or cards among yourselves. We have always felt a strong connection towards our ikolam community, and hope to spend Feb 14th with ikolam. So, got any love for us? Smile We didn't plan on throwing any such trick questions, but in case you have some sort of "hearty" feelings towards us (us as in ikolam), then may be you might want to consider sharing it with all of us.

Mardi gras

Mardi Gras is a festival celebrated prior to fasting season of Lent. It is also known as Shrove Tuesday and Fat Tuesday. It refers to the practice of the last night of consuming rich array of foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten period, that begins on Ash Wednesday. This year, Mardi Gras occurs on February 12. Celebrations include floats, carnivals, parades, sport competitions, dancing, and parties where people celebrate with fancy costumes and masks.

Contest results

This year, for the Margazhi dew drops kolam contest, we had requested two of our members, who also happen to be non-participants of this contest, to judge the kolam contest entries. We are pleased with the way our Judges, Mrs.Rajamma Sitaraman and Mrs.Jaya Mohan had judged the entries, keeping in mind all the pertaining contest requirements.
