ammuchandhini's picture

Thank u anirudh and welcome back here after a is a tradition here to keep lighted diyas during karthigai evenings and also margazhi mornings after we finish our margazhi spl kolams... Smile

lakshmiraghu's picture

rani please explain me ..why diyas.. margazhi mornings ?? any reason...?i have this doubt for a long time...

ammuchandhini's picture

I don't know d exact reason pa...but i have heard in my native place(tanjore and trichy) relatives keep diyas in karthigai evenings in addition to their maadam(niche) diyas and also in margazhi mornings....after they finish their kolams....waiting for somebody who has a better answer to this.. Smile .

anirudh's picture

in Karnataka, we only keep diyas during kArthika evenings. Not sure of margaLi.

lakshmiraghu's picture

yes Anirudh in Andhra pradesh and karnataka... diyas during kArthika evenings.but in tamilnadu only i am seeing this...

ammuchandhini's picture hubby is saying as margazhi is a month devoted fully to music, bhakthi and kolams....(as it is not a practice to celebrate any function)...may be ladies in those days did big spl kolams during this month and also kept diyas...even now in srirangam and tanjore we can see lot of elderly men and children chanting bhajans on d streets in d early mornings of this month... Smile

Rani, ur kudam ( Dirol kolam is so cute with nice kuzhal border.
Rani, I too kep the kolampaper with me while putting chikku kolam for referring then and there.
Regarding the Deepams for margazhi kolam.. may be early morning ladies put the big kolam and to avoid people stamping on it during the early moring fog and dim light, diyas were kept!

ammuchandhini's picture

Thanks rajamma mam...was waiting for ur views since we had that discussion about those diyas....also wanted u to see this sikku kolam... J) ...thanks anyways... Smile
