Margazhyi Kolams Day11:

Friday is normally associated with Lakshmi Devi, the Goddess of fortune, wealth, abundance, good luck and prosperity. The Padi kolam is special and is drawn to honour and invite her into the house.
The basic square pattern with 4 lines each on the perimeter is the same at the centre and the ways one keeps expanding and building it up is left to the creativity and imagination.

The patterns created in different regions of India might be different but isn’ t it interesting to know that in terms of intention and symbolic value there is a common purpose!!
