Amma’s Kolams

As I had mentioned in my post on Margazhi thingal, kolams are a primary part of south Indian tradition, for any function / festival. My mom has been known for her free scale designs in kolam… Though it’s just 2 coloured, it just looks so pleasing for the eyes!

They look so simple, but the symmetry is something I wonder about, and pray for the talent to show up in me if I had inherited at least little bit in the genes and if its hiding somewhere ;-)!

Think pics can better explain than words… I leave it to you to check it out! πŸ™‚

There are lot’s more πŸ˜‰ you’ll see it in other posts too, wherever applicable! πŸ™‚
