Mardi gras

Mardi Gras is a festival celebrated prior to fasting season of Lent. It is also known as Shrove Tuesday and Fat Tuesday. It refers to the practice of the last night of consuming rich array of foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten period, that begins on Ash Wednesday. This year, Mardi Gras occurs on February 12. Celebrations include floats, carnivals, parades, sport competitions, dancing, and parties where people celebrate with fancy costumes and masks.

Contest results

This year, for the Margazhi dew drops kolam contest, we had requested two of our members, who also happen to be non-participants of this contest, to judge the kolam contest entries. We are pleased with the way our Judges, Mrs.Rajamma Sitaraman and Mrs.Jaya Mohan had judged the entries, keeping in mind all the pertaining contest requirements.

Instant publish

We have decided to instantly publish most of our members' rangolis who have been members in this site for at least more than an year. The rangolis would get displayed instantly in members' galleries, and also on the main Rangoli page (displays the latest rangolis).
We still would have to moderate to a certain level to showcase the rangolis in the front-page.
