The four Trust Cross Streets of Mandavelipakkam showcase perhaps the best range of kolams and rangolis in one cluster at this time of the year.
Residents here get up early to design small, medium and large kolams and some colourfuol rangolis. And they do it on all days of the margazhi season.
On Sunday, to acknowledge the creativity and effort, Mylapore Times newspaper invited Amarnath and Surendranath of The Mylapore Trio ( Aparna being the third member of this family) to walk down the four narrow streets and choose some kolams and rangolis that deserved special gifts.
The duo, who used to reside in this area, did a quick job of their assignment, talking to families who were still working on their creative work as the fog held on.
Similarly, kolam expert Gayathri Shankaranarayan, after completing her kolam at her residence in CIT Colony, dashed down to the Sri Madhava Perumal Temple zone to go around five local streets and choose a bunch of kolams and rangolis that deserved gifts.
Mylapore Times intends to host similar melas next margazhi across 10 neighbourhoods on one day. If your residents’ group is keen to join hands, be collaborators and enjoy this experience, mail us at – firstname.lastname@example.org
