The festival of colours is coming and of course, it is not complete without colourful Kolam! Kolam is a form of traditional Hindu art, practised since the olden times and is usually drawn in front of homes to symbolise auspiciousness. As the world progresses rapidly and people are pressed for time, the humble art of ‘kolam’ drawing has evolved to suit their needs. First, came the ‘kolam’ drawn using coloured powders in which the geometrical shapes of design are filled with dyed rice or sugee flour. Then came the ‘pookolam’ where flowers of different colours are arranged in shaping the beautiful designs.
Families with creative streaks, here’s your chance to show off your talent! The Diwali Kolam Competition by Utropolis Marketplace gives families of up to four persons the opportunity to participate in this fun event with cash prizes up for grabs. Registration fee is RM20 per group, and only the first 20 groups will qualify for a spot. If you prefer to just go kolam-hunting around the city, visit shopping malls like Mid Valley Megamall, Berjaya Times Square, Da Men Mall and Sungei Wang to see these beautifully-created designs!
