Dear iKolam members,
Welcome to our Annual Navaratri contests! As always, we are conducting both Golu and Marapachi doll decor contests. Please help spread the word and participate.
May the blessings of Goddess Durga be with all!
Aadi kolams for the month of Aadi. The Tamil month of Aadi starts mid July and ends in mid-August. The Goddess is worshipped to establish peace and harmony in the world. Adiperukku is a Tamil festival celebrated on the 18th day of the Tamil month of Adi (mid July). The festival coincides with the annual freshes of the rivers and to pay tribute to water's life-sustaining properties. It is celebrated near river basins, water tanks, lakes and wells etc. of Tamil Nadu.
Check out the Pinterest board for Aadi kolams and rangolis.

Wishing a happy Ugadi, and a happy Gudi padwa to all of our members who celebrate these rejuvenating spring festivals! We've already feasted our eyes on some of the latest beautiful and special rangolis. And we believe there are more to come.
