Anjali started making pookalam from Attam (as per Malayalam calender), September 4, 2016.
She continued to make new patterns each day, to follow the tradition.
Take a look at her designs!
IMAGE: Anjali (left) has been making pookalams every year on Onam, since her childhood.
IMAGE: Quite an elaborate pookalam, isn’t it? Loved the play of colours.
IMAGE: On Day 2, Anjali used leaves and petals creatively.
IMAGE: Her love for flowers reflects in these beautiful pookalams she makes.
IMAGE: Surprisingly, she never ran short of ideas and everyday the pookalams looked different.
IMAGE: This pookalam is a fusion of leaves and four different coloured flowers.
IMAGE: This one here is pretty colourful, right?
IMAGE: From Day 7, she began experimenting with the shapes.
IMAGE: As the days passed, the shapes got wackier, like this one.
IMAGE: There she’s back to the regular circle, but with a twist.
IMAGE: See how she played around with simple geometry in this pookalam!
IMAGE: And the her last pookalam reminds us of the one she made on Day One.
