Pattathu Yaanai

rajamma_2's picture

I am Veni Deivanai, who recently visited this ikolam site and got impressed.As my first entry, I am herewith enclosing a Chikku kolam for the " Margazhi kolam contest".
In olden days, when the Maharaja dies without leaving his heir for the throne,the Pattaththu yaanai, i.e the main Elephant of the Raajmahal will be sent with a garland around the city, to select the next person for the throne.Towhomesoever the Elephant put the garland will be declared as the next Raja.
Here, I have put a chikku kolam in the form of Pattathu yaanai with the real garland in his hand on its way to select the RAJA. Hope you all will enjoy this. Smile

Rangoli: Pattathu  Yaanai

very nice one...also like the way of using flowers for the garland.
Veni ma'm welcome to iKolam!!!

i was showing this to mom and immediately she recalled the poem "tirukanorva ooramunde muruku dharmashaaleyalli ......kariya baayge kusumamaale....." (a poorman sleeping in dharmasala has a dream where the elephant comes with garland and makes him the king and series of fun things happen in the dream....and atlast he wakes up Smile ).
