Some useful links on Kolams

Here are some sites I found while looking for Kolams.

1. Lakshmi Sarathy has put some good pages in SysIndia. There's a detailed description about what is Kolam and what does it signify. Check out one of Lakshmi Sarathy's Galleries.

2. Institute of Indology and Tamil Studies (IITS), University of Cologne has a page on 'Kolam'. There's a useful link 'Kolams of M. Gandhimati' that, though written in German, has a good lot of 'pulli kolams' with very intricate designs.

3. i-Kolam, an interactive Kolam site offers a good number of resources on 'do-it-yourself' simple, challenging and very complex Kolams.

4. Tamilnadu Electronic Library has some pages in Geocities, owned by K.Kalyanasundaram. He's tried to bring out the importance of what Kolams are and there are a good number of simple 'pulli kolam' designs in that page.

More about these later.

Got some links and resources on Kolams? Let me know.
