Created by madhuharini on 2009-02-13,

In our daugter-in-law's valaikappu we put pilliyar in navadania. We prepare a savory called kollu payiru. It contains kollu, pachaipayaru, bengalgram, pottukadalai and managaram. All are roasted and, salt & chilli is added. But the pilliyar was made with colourful daniams.

This is straight dotted kambi kolam. 65 dots straight line and 33 dots horizontal line.

I have put this Vinayagar kolam for the Times of India margazhi kolam contest and I won the prize worth Rs.25,000/- Designer saree from RMKV. First I put this vinayagar on paper with pencil. It took 2hrs. Then I thought if I drew this kolam with rice flour, would it take more than 3hrs? So, I started this kolam at 3am in the early morning. Dots tooks 2 hrs, after that I finished Vinayagar at around 8.30am in the morning. Behind my house there is space to draw my Vinayagar. In that place we didn't have proper lights. My father and brothers made some temporary arrangements and fixed a small light, and my sister and brother's wife were also up early morning, and they stood in both sides and gave some feedback every now and then ( looks nice, good, draw the line properly, correctly). My family supports to me a lot.

Hard work never fails. Its god's gift.

With Regards

This was a Rangoli for for my friend's wedding - my biggest ever about 9 feet in diameter (picture taken from 6th floor balcony). The black astral projections were a part of the Hotel flooring (The Retreat, Madh Island, Mumbai) and I'd to centre the Rangoli in a way that Rangoli was symmetrically distributed over these asters...the effect seems superb though!
