Soory for the late reply. I

Soory for the late reply. I had missed this as it has passed when i have not logged on to ikolam.

Sorry lata, Chukki means - dot. the other meaning is "Star" Sometimes we call this rangoli as "Gantina Rangoli" i.e sikku means - Gantu - Complex etc. Finally there are 3 types
1. CHUKKI Rangoli - Dotted Rangoli - i.e rangoli with dots either straight lines or curved.
2. Gantina Rangoli - Sikku Kolam - which is very complex as the curves are not easy to follow.
3. Ele Rangoli - Free hand rangoli's with lines. "Ele" means lines either single/double/four strokes.

Lata it is not your ignorance, even i dont know lot many words in Tamil. Now my tamil vocabulory is getting improved from iKolam. Thank you for that.

Nice Chukki rangoli Padma.

Nice Chukki rangoli Padma. You've provided a swing for your dotted rangoli. Cute hearts.
By the way, please tell me what "chukki" means. Does it mean dotted? Pardon my ignorance, I don't know even the common words in languages other than tamil, hindi and english. But, I'm willing to learn. Smile
