I was in India during Marghazhi and had the pleasure of doing kolams along with my sister in law. After finishing we felt we had done a complete exercise routine.

Very lovely kolam and good colouring. I agree with you that it gives you a very good exercise (bending, stretching, thinking about the kolam (exercise for the brain), finger movements, etc.). That is why I feel that apart from putting kolams/rangolis during festivals and occasions, the insistence should be on putting the kolam daily. Even if only a small kolam, it should be put on a daily basis in the morning. Our ancestors have set up certain regimens for us, which has some basis and relevance even today.

Lovely kolam Ganga - gives a wonderful feeling once you have completed the task right?? I personally think it would have looked better if all the shanks were facing the same direction..

Thanks for your comments . It would be nice if someone can explain in what propotion one needs to mix rice flour and kolam powder along with the colors. We found the colors were a little bit dull.
