Maybe 3-4 years ago – I did this, amid much laughter and fun with my mom in January – when VVR uncle and aunty had the Kottarotsavam, when Lord Krishna is brought to their house – its a huge honor and has been in their family tradition for years – and in turn, I had the honor for a few years – ever since I met them over eleven years ago. This particular year, rather than do the rangoli on the floor, I did it on cardboard because their house had just been renovated and I didn’t want the colors staining the vitreous flooring. So I did this at home – and it was mom’s idea to take a photograph of it for timepass. 🙂
