I've opened this page three times already, and I still don't know how to appreciate it better. The inner pattern is so attractive! Beautiful work with bright colors.

About 12 years ago 'Idhayam' published a book of 100 rangolis drawn by different people selected by 'kola kalai arasi' Santha Narayanan. This one and your previous rangolis are taken from that collection. Am I right Sakaji?
