Congrats for all the winners and participants. It was really a wonderful opportunity for me to see all beautiful kolams and learn something out of this. I generally dont try chikku kolam as i feel this is too complex for me, I dont have any chikku kolam in my kolam note. But seeing this contest kolams i tried some of them - copied the kolam in my kolam note first. I just noticed today that i have missed to comment on some kolams, sorry that i missed - I just forgot to click post comment as i was voting and commenting at the same time. So my wishes to all the participants for whom i missed to comment.

Congratulations to Mrs latA and Mr maNi for their energy and enthusiasm in conducting the contest. Special congratulations to all the participants for zealously creating excellent patterns. The next accolade goes to all the voters. Finally I wish to offer my hearty congratulations to the ranked women, viz., sarvaSrImati preeti, hEmA, jayA, rAjammA and rANi. I cannot resist the temptation of mentioning the name of SrI aniruddha, the one and only representative of the XY gen. A bit preoccupied nowadays, I will offer my comments to all the designs in course of time.

Regards! - mOhana

latAjI, am I missing something? You say there are 36 participants, but there are only 35 entries.

Ciao Lata,
Sorry to hear that u r suffering from migraine .I know migraine pain is impossible to tolerate .It drags away all our happiness .Lata please attend some yoga class if it is available at your place. Meditation will help you a lot if you have already leant then it is fine otherwise just smile (there should not be any frill in the forehead) that means smile should be genuine .We can smile by imagining something good happened in the life or you can imagine the picture of God whom u r having the faith or imagine your children’s face whichever giving you the happiness .slowly make your body very relaxed and start emptying the mind(not to think anything),though initially it is very difficult but later on you will masteries on this .sit for 5-10 minutes sin this position .Make sure u repeat this exercise two –three times a day it will definitely help u. When u feel u will get the attack at that time whatever busy u r keep the work aside and do this simple exercise .your smile will work like a tranquilizer .And try to eat some fermented food in the early morning if possible .If you do this exercise after the deep breathing exercise then it is still better .This is only friendly advice

Lata's picture

Thank you for the timely advice Doctor! Smile
I'll definitely try the 'being still for a few minutes' routine and will let you know when I see some progress.

smahalakshmi's picture

Dear Lata, you had mentioned that the complete results and stats about this contest kolams will be published in a week's time. Is that been published here? Where can I see that dear? Since i didn't log into this Ikolam for about 2 to 3 weeks, I might have missed it, in case if it has been published. That's the reason, I asked you about this.


Lata's picture

Here it is:
I had wanted to provide some more stats as well, but due to lack of time and energy, couldn't.
