Chikku kolam

Lata's picture
About Chikku kolam:

I got interested in making this chikku kolam, after I had read the comments from Jayanthi's kolam ( In order to show the design without any borders/frills, I have drawn the strokes and omitted the central netted square filler that we see in Jayanthi's design. I'm hoping Dawn would find this easy. Smile

Dotted kolam

Excellent. No words. I love the way the line takes new new unexpected turns. This teaches us a lesson also. The line which moves may be compared to our LIFE whcih also takes unexpected turns, move straight for some time, again a bend, and finally when it completes the path, Thats the end of our life. If the final design comes out to be a fine art "THEN WHAT WE LEAD - OUR LIFE IS a successful / satisfactory life". Thanks alot Lata.

Wow, Lata, that was just great! Thanks so much for the animation; although I had liked the original one a lot, I had given up trying it.
You have the enthusiasm and intuition of a born teacher. God bless you.
