Jaya, asaththeettiye. romba neat and beautiful. Having a nice frontyard like this you rarely allow ikolam members visit this to admire your kolams.

Achil Varthathu pola ulathu (looks like a printed version). I'm glued to the monitor admiring the steady strokes. The outer border lines and the dots elevate the beauty of the kolam.

This speaks the talent and the experience Jayaji! Very steady and neat strokes and the dots make this kolam like a newly wedded girl (புது மணப்பெண் ). Why don't you treat us like this very often?

My MIL also enjoyed this very much:)

Jaya mam, this kolam looks like a print on the floor. Very beautifully drawn. As Brindha mam has rightly said, this kolam shows how much experienced you are. I liked ur steady strokes. May be one day, I'll also get such beautiful steady strokes. (Not over ambitious - I always have a belief that if u aim for 100%, u'll atleast gain 50% success).

Thank you madam.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments! This is a common design and anybody is free to copy/try!I would like to see different versions of this! Alamelu madam, Iam not very comfortable with double ezhai. I've done as single line only!
Vidhya, My grand daughter is doing fine. Thanks for your affectionate enquiry!Brindha, It is sheer laziness that prevents me from doing more. Also when I see your amazing creations I feel like going under my shell!

Amazingly neat work Jaya - I wish you could shake that lazy feeling off your bones more often and give us treats like this one. Very interesting design and excellent presentation - no more words to say what I feel when seeing this beautiful bride.
