Designer Earth

The design below is called ‘kolam’ in Tamil (one of the oldest and most unique languages of the world, and my mother tongue).

Many Indians decorate their home entrances with such designs every day, as symbols of prosperity.

The white rice flour + ‘mokku’ mix against the pressed and wet brown soil is eye-catching, isn’t it! This kolam was done by our farm help Ms. Amalaa, quite an adept in this art!
