Kolam practitioner, Grace Gitadellia tells us how this “visual language” can speak to those who can read it

Every living form is made up of sound and light that threads, weaves and knots us together in a Matrix of endless possibilities. These possibilities are expanding with our consciousness and awakening. Kolam makes that visual, what we already know deep within for being true but just can't seem to put our finger on it yet. And then Kolam takes you by that finger, the hand, the arm, the heart and mind and leads you to discoveries of self and your connectedness in this world and the Universe.

While singing a bandish dedicated to Devi Durga he explained, "this is not easy. One has to understand the entire personality of the god or goddess to present or dedicate the song.
