Rangoli: Happy pongal / Sankranthi

Wish all ikolam members a Happy Pongal / Shankranthi.
Wanted to draw some rangoli, but Sahana wanted it this way.With her able help in putting the scene, preparations colour poder and final touch by my daughter I could complete it only today.
( when about to finish my 5 year old grandson, Sashank showed his appreciation by putting his hand on it, so corrections took some more time and finally it is for u to enjoy and Comment)

Rangoli: Ezhai kolam with dots

These type of kolams with wet rice mavu can be put for functions inside the house or in wedding halls on the previous day itself and if you add little maida mavu to the mixture then even somebody walk over the kolam it will not get spoilt.
