In South India , similar to Meerabai we have Aandal who composed songs for Lord Ranganatha( Vishnu) and was a true devotee of lord Ranganatha and wanted to marry him. Aandal’ s wish comes true and she gets fully decked up as a bride to marry the Lord and like Meerabai she too merges into Ranganatha’ s idol.
Margazhi day 27 is called ” koodarai” and is special for Aandal
A special hairdo is an important part of a south Indian bride’s attire similar to the bharatanatyam dance style. One of the ornaments worn on the hair is the ” Rakodi” .
Day 27: Today I have drawn a rangoli similar to the ornament “Rakodi “which Aandal would wear as one of the ornaments as a bride.
