South India .. Pongal, a celebration of harvest and prosperity. Simple everyday kolam’s were replaced by intricate and colourful geometric patterns. Though of course it’s always fun to spot urban symbols like ducks and hearts in our modern-day kolams! :) I’m used to calling this Rangoli, however the tradition of drawing kolams in front of your home every morning is mostly South Indian. It’s not just decoration. Kolam’s signify welcoming, harmony and prosperity.
