Rajamji thank you ,actually I had gone to stay with my mother for a few days as she was about to go for yatra(Chinmaya mission's family camp in Guptakasi and Kunda)I just wanted to make sure she packed her things properly.though my brother does everything even I wanted to be with her.Rajamji ,how was your Haridwar yatra??

One more ikolam-Chinmaya family!
No wonder we don't get to "talk to" Asha that often! Smile
The colors you've chosen for this kolam reminds me of the popular mysore-silk, pattu saree color combination of mustard yellow + maroon. Do you have one in that color? I need to get one in my next visit (Nalli in my area is limited in choices).

Please let me know if you come to know of any Chinmaya retreats for seniors (in Bangalore/Chennai). Although I wouldn't be of retirable age in a decade, I still would like to be in one of those Chinmaya madams for good! Smile

Binny silk?? Asha then it must be quite an old saree... or do you still get Binny Silk sarees??? very pretty combination...

ashanagendra's picture

yes Judy,thats an old saree .now we don't get binny silks only mysore silk sarees,that too very expensive!

I guessed as much - I too had a Binny saree (dont know exactly what material - somewhat like chiffon) - it could literally be folded and put into a matchbox - so soft and comfortable - bottle green with flowers..

Such a classic design. I know you have tried to explain before, but after 5 tries I was still unable to follow :-). I think I understand how you have connected, but I am not getting how you place the dots. Would you be able to just upload the dots pattern ?

Peela's picture

Ah finally, by devi's grace, I got it! It took 6 tries :-).
