60 We draw kolam with love and affection. On Fridays and auspicious events, we make large kolams. I would love to make big kolams every day, but I don’t have time because of all my household duties. Sometimes, when I can’t stop myself from giving the design a little extra work, my mother-in-law complains. Before marriage, when I lived in my mother’s house, mum complained about all the time I wasted on kolam. But I kept on drawing until they forced me to stop and take on other chores. I draw kolam with love and great interest, I always try to find time to put it.
