Hello All,

Thank you so much for all your inputs. I have participated in iKolam for the first time and feeling really motivated. As Latha has mentioned, I have used Rock / Crystal salt mixed with Rangoli colours and the brown on the four edges is the Ragi.

Thank you all,

Yashoda Shivashankar

Do you know? This is a famous pattern.
If you take out the top node and make it
as the head and tail of a serpent, this
becomes nAgabandha, a pattern used in
prosody (ChaMdassu)! Poems are written
in this pattern. Where two lines cross,
there the letter must be the same for
two lines of the poem (like in crossword
puzzles). Good! - mOhana

Hi Mohana, Your comment tells me that you know quite a lot about these kind of unique art patterns. I've seen the serpent patterns that you've mentioned in books and I hope to draw them in the site one day...until then, I'll enjoy reading more from your end...please Smile

Dear Yashoda
Thanx for sharing the experience!
I thought yours will definitely win a prize!
Anyways, participation is most important.
