Happy Pongal - Quilled Kolam :)


Hello All,

At the outset, my family and I wish you a very happy Pongal/Makar Sankranti. Pongal (in Tamil Nadu) and Makar Sankranti (in some parts of the country) are some the harvest festivals in India. My husband and I hail from two different parts of India and the festival is celebrated differently in our places. But the spirit of the festival remains the same - thanking Mother Nature for bestowing us with prosperity in form of good harvest. :) I love this culture of thanking Nature for helping us :)

Here is my colourful and highly symmetrical (12 fold symmetry) wish for all of you out there.........may Mother Nature bestow on your good health and peace of mind. Happy Pongal/Makar Sankranti.......



Happy Quilling

Pritesh

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, plea

Gorgeous indeed! I`m enchanted to know about your celebration through your work, we all have a lot of reasons to be greatfull to mother nature for. (I was wondering, is there any relation between Kolam and Mandala?)

Thank you so much everyone. I don't know if there is a connection between mandala and kolam Anca. At least, I don't know of one but then, the way things are inter-mingled, there may well be :)
