Sweet packet :-)

jkmrao's picture

Here is a hexagonal chikku kOlam for a triangle (dots 9 to 1). There are five independent strings. The second one on the left top is actually light yellow, but somehow it came out almost white, but didn't feel like repeating the whole thing again Wink For some reason, when I see this, I am reminded of my childhood days when we used to purchase packets of sweet and savoury in shops with heaps of them arranged as pyramids. They used to take dried lotus leaves and make a pyramidal type of packet with a string tied all over. In those days, they used to cost one anna (six paise) when rice used to be sold for one rupee a paDi (not kilo). Well, any way, enjoy!

I'm going to be busy unraveling these colorful strings in my dreams tonight, and hopefully get to eat some yummy Agra-ka peda. I can dream about any sweet that I'm in the mood for. No wait, I want more. On the way, I'm going to stop by Mathura too for some Mathura-ka pedas. :0
I'm reminded of the padi measure (from 1/4 onwards) that my grandma uses back home. And I think she still uses her 'ser' measurement for measuring freshly churned butter, if I remember it right. Smile
