Red and white Padikolam

rajamma_2's picture

We put padikolam on all auspecious days. Today is Kaaradayaan nonbu. It is celebrated at the time of Tamil months Maasi and Panguni meet. It is called Savithri nonbu, since on this day Sathi Savithri fought back her husband Sathyavaan's life from Yamadharma Raja.
So ladies keep vruth and tie a yellow thread in the neck and make sweet and kaara Adai for prasad. .
So it is a simple Padikolam drawn today before pooja with wet maavu and red( Arakku) color powder.

Rangoli: Red and white Padikolam

Red and white colouring on a black background makes your kolam so attractive! Very pretty designing work, Rajamma ma'am...

Very nice red and white padi kolam. Cute extensions. We also celebrated Kaaradaiyaan Nonbu by preparing uppu and vella adai and tying the yellow thread in the neck. I also put maa kolam, which I shall upload in a day or two.
