Free-hand rangoli for margazhi masam in front of my house.
Dots 21-11 middle dots. Rangoli is decorated with kundan stones, sequins & beads.
This 12 x 12 dot Kolam, shows Peacocks and Lotuses. The colour powder is home made.
This peacock kolam was created for deepavali. The dots are 7-4 middle dots.
This photo of the kolam was taken at the AnnualDay Function of THE STATE BANK LADIES CLUB, KOYEMBEDU, CHENNAI in this year 2008. I participated in the Rangoli Competition, and got the first prize for the same. First it was drawn on the floor by a piece of chalk. Then it was filled with colour rangoli powder, mixed with pure-white rangoli powder. With the help of a single match-stick designs were drawn on the spread-out coloured rangoli powder. Then decorated with some glittering powders, and small pieces of mirror like metal pieces. I felt so happy in getting the prize in front of all the members of the club / all my friends.
I'm proud to mention the name of the Judge. Mrs.Revati Shanmugam, daughter of Thiru. Kaviarasu Kannadasan.
