Thanks latAjI for your fine efforts in bringing out the latent talents of the artists. I had a glimpse of all. Looks like all have put in lot of artistry in their creations. Congratulations to them. I'll comment on all of them when time permits.

I saw the seashell patterns of Mrs mahAlakshmi and Mrs subhAshiNi. Suddenly I remembered the patterns I made with a real seashell long ago. Please have a look at it as it agrees with the present theme. The url is -

Dr.Rekha, you did participate in this theme. You shared a nice guessing game in the last couple of weeks, remember?
And besides, you're always participating with your comments which are very valuable to all of us. Smile

Mohanaji, I enjoyed looking at the shell pattern one more time. Also noticed that there were more shell patterns emerging from the past uploads made by others as well. Smile

Padma, I'm so glad you're on board with us, on this journey as well. It wasn't the same without you dear. Smile

I'm so glad you got the connection at your home, Vasanthi! No wonder we missed you and your comments for a couple of days, a few days ago. Now we get to hear your thoughts almost every day and night, I believe. :0

Ganga and Radhika, we're glad you enjoyed everyone's creations. I hope you two will find some time to participate the next time. Smile

hi lata, have been away for a long time....this is a wonderful theme, and the best part is the ideas and imagination put in the form of rangoli. It's really great to see these wonderful creations from all of you.
