Here is an animated circular dotted kolam that I'm uploading after a long time. It has 17 dots at the center line followed by 15, and then it varies. Hope you enjoy it.

Lovely pC kolam and animation Lata. It is not only useful for the beginners but also to us. How come this time the outer circle is made as a separate body. Any idea behind that?

Simply super Latha. I feel like trying this immediately as I am fan of Sikku kolams. If time permits I will try.

Padma, the outer circle is just a round border to enclose the design.
Kameswari, hope you get some time in the near future.
Rani, hope you'll try it in soon, in Margazhi.

Lovely kolam and lovely animation. The blending of colors in the background as well on the lines are super!

Beautiful animation for a beautiful design. It looks like a car chase in a suspense movie One or two suggestions, if you don't mind. A plain background would have been more apt. With this background, the colours in the bottom half are barely visible. The outer circular border, while in itself is quite charming, distracts the view from the main design.

Hi Mahalakshmi, sure, you can try any design. I believe we don't have to ask or wait for anybody's permission since these are kolams/rangolis and most of them (atleast in the case of chikku designs) are passed from one to the other. We all end up with our own versions, which adds to the variety.
You're right Mohanaji, I had two backgrounds (another one was pale pink), but ended up choosing this one because someone in my family liked it.

Eye catching kolam. I liked the four angles of the kolam. The circle border gives finish to the kolam.
By the way, everybody is mentioning about Markazhi Month kolams. What is it about? Does everybody upload different kolams everyday - like the one put in Tamil Nadu daily -or is there any contest during this period. Eager to know about it and share some kolams from my collection. In th process, it gives me a chance to learn new beautiful kolams from this site.

Pragaya, Margazhi month is between mid-december to mid-january. People make kolams during this season predominantly in south india. You can try to make kolams, and upload here to share, if you like. And we also conduct a contest. So, you're welcome to participate if you like.

Thanks for the reply Lata. Eagerly awaiting the contest announcement, so that I can see and learn different kolams.
