The Rangoli designers have been asking us to host a contest for some years now. We were a bit stubborn - keen to stick to the kolam always. But it made sense to promote creativity of all kinds - this Festival stands for this.
So on January 13 we allowed 30 people to design rangolis on the Pongal theme. And what a show is turned out to be - the carpet of rangolis got bigger attention at the far end of North Mada Street, near the Mangollai junction.
