A small and simple kolam with lines that can be drawn for the festival season . Though it appears complicated with lots of intersecting lines , watch this rangoli video latest addition to the collection of padi kolam designs
So what does a kolam signify. Drawing a kolam at the entrance shows that all is well in the house. Drawing a kavi border to a kolam shows there is a function in the house - a wedding , house warming of functions like Aksharabhyasam , Seemantham or Valaikappu . Such kolam are also drawn for Namakarana.
So it is our tradition to draw small and simple kolam daily and special kolam for festivals and functions. When I visited some villages near Chennai and Kancheepuram I found that this tradition is still being maintained there.
