Happy Sankranti/Pongal

Sankranti is celebrated for 3 days,this was my fav festival since babyhood.I am kind of person who wants to celebrate always then when it comes to festivals i will never give up my chance of rejoice.Yummy Pongal,New Movies,Colourful rangolis along the streets and people with new clothes and lots n lots of hapiness around!!!Celebrating pongal in small town is a wonderful experience Haridas visit to each house of town,Bulls decorated in colourful clothing and dances according to the tunes of Nadaswaram and Dhol.Donating rice to the bull men and haridas is fun!!Hold in high esteem all the small town celebration memories.Mom's used to cook all the traditional sweets for this festival and pass to every house.In the city streets we don't see the haridas,bulls and colorful rangolis but the sky is filled with the Splashy kites!!! Young and Old will have fun in flying kites.I am fortunate to experince both the Urban n smalltown celebrations..Ladies will be spreading their art on the streets with splashy colourful rangolis for this festival.They spend hours and hours together to design a beautiful rangolis i don't feel like walking on the streets i just wanna fly and glimpse over the beautiful creative arts!!In western countries we don't have a chance of desiging this rangolis which is very tough in these freezing temperatures.I know this festival is making me talk so much ;).
For many traditional parties they make this creative arts with flowers,dals,glitters...I got an idea of creating a rangoli in my living room,there was an old rice which is lying in my kitchen pantry so i made best use of it.Added some food colours to rice and droped the design for the Lakshmi pooja last year.


To pop-up my rangoli i used white paper.So howz that???


Closer shot of my splashy creation..
What do u think of little,cute colourful Diya's :) 
 
For this year i am gonna enjoy this white snow Sankranti!!!
 

Happy Sankranti !!!!

Pongal nalvazhthukkal!! Pongal always holds a very special place in my heart! 4 days of fun and holidays! In my apartment we used to put the kolam on all the 30 days of margazhi and until the kaanum pongal! Oh god, Marina beach used to be full of heads on that day! It's so much fun! Your rice kolam is fabulous! Enjoy the snowy pongal there!

You Kolams are beautiful.When you are away from India you do feel that you must make it a point to celebrate in whatever small way.
Using colored rice is a beautiful idea.
