Sikku, meaning “knotted” and is a type of kolam done around the dots .In a “Sikku” kolam white lines curl around a dot.
As I snake around the dots with my fingers squeezing the powder on the mat I need to simultaneously concentrate on the screenshot of the pattern on my mobile screen and on the dot grid on the mat . It requires focus and speed and I seem to enjoy the twists and the turns . Isn’t this similar to the twists and turns
that we face in our life too and also feel as pleased as a punch at the final sweet outcome sometimes !!
