So as i mentioned in a previous post, Hindu Indian women get up around 4 or five in the morning and make these drawings outside the entrances to their homes. It is considered to be bad luck to repeat the exact same kolam pattern within a 30-day period.
They then proceed to do all their housework including some very complex cooking processes so that by round about 10 in the morning when it starts to get hot, they can take things easy…but only for the “wealthier” women. For the others after household duties they would then go on to labour in the fields.
