In Tamil Nadu after Deepavali in November, Poongal is a famous festival. On that day people use new rice to make poongal sweets and say thanks to Sun God who give us light everyday. On that day everybody makes the most colorful Kolam at the entrance of their door to attract the attention of the passengers and to welcome guests.
With this first photo I like to welcome you with all the colors as warm greetings from Tamil Nadu .

Great composition. Nice detail, lighting, and perspective. I like how the drawing includes the color of her dress.

Welcome to TE with this great shot. Personally I have been very tired of Indian photos taken mostly western photographers in this site, standing on your people.
Hope to see India from an Indian eyes in your portfolio with a great photograpy like this one.

What a nice tradition you have where you welcome guests by painting the entrance. This is a nice and colourful image and I like how the girls dress is matching the colour in the pattern :O)
And welcome to you here on TE.
