Kolam

Today was good. Started by waking up very very late, special diwali food in the afternoon, a kolam (or rangoli as they call it here) competition, diwali fireworks ending with special diwali dinner.

My friend and I teamed up to take part in a rangoli competition. We chose a simple-looking design from i-kolam.com. Everything looks simple on paper. We rushed to the hall and saw that 5 other people had already started their's about 45 minutes ago. We had very little white powder to start with though there were a lot of coloured powders. While we went for a traditional Tamil kolam, the others had chosed rangoli, where you draw the otline first and then fill it up with coloured powder. So, our's looked very bland in comparison. This was the final result. The picture was supposed to be symmetrical; it is for the most part, except for the colours.



Later, fireworks started. Some guys said that they paid close to half a lakh this term alone and this was their chance to get their money's worth. Two and a half hours later, a few thousands of rupees ('s worth of crackers) had gone up in smoke. The fireworks in the sky were spectacular, though.
