Suguna, this member is not going to answer anytime soon since she is not a frequent visitor nowadays. I guess I'll have to do it in the meantime. She is the inspiration behind this site's birth. :) She is my daughter Aarushi. I knew she wasn't going to "get" easy access to her grandmas and aunts (like the way I did) who might teach/ share ways to make rangolis, since she was being raised in the US. I decided to make my own tool that shows the strokes for kolams, which is how ikolam came into existence (my blog). Initially, I shared with family/friends, and then opened it out to the world, and started sharing others works as well. This is the short story. :) She is a college student and makes rangolis only for special days.
