Pongalo Pongal - Thai Thirunal Celebration! :)


Wish you all a very happy Pongal!!!! :)


Thai Thirunal Valzhtukkal!!


Pongal celebration
Miniature of traditional pongal setting that I did


Pongal is a very traditional and interesting festival that we love to celebrate. This year, just as ever we had a lot of fun.

The extra fun that I had this year was to decorate a miniature mockup of the ethnic pongal celebration. :) hey of course the pongal in it is true and edible. :)

The pic above is a set of small earthen pots that I got from Valluvar kotam. I pained it to make it look more special and ethnic. :) Loved making the sand base and miniature kolam too. :)

The entire scene setting is just within half feet measure. :)


Pongal
It was hard to balance the sugarcanes that way. But I loved this pic :)


And yeah.. Kolam is one other thing that becomes mandatory for any traditional celebration. :)

Here is my first try on color kolam. I enjoyed doing it though it was a little time consuming. :) Yet to master the tricks of using color in kolam. :)
