Mada Kuzhi

Mada Kuzhi (c)ramaswamyn.com

Mada Kuzhi, is an artistic expression in ancestrol homes. This hole in the wall was multi purpose, used to light a lamp in the evenings / to keep “kolam podi” the rice powder used to draw kolams outside the homes and many left to the imagination of the ladies at these homes.

Now it seems a museum piece and not seen in modern homes.

Today DailyPhoto Chennai Completes ONE YEAR.

Thanks to all who encouraged & encouraging this Photoblog about Chennai to keep it going.

  1. The flat culture has flattened these out.

    I think it also used to serve as a letter (posts) keeper.

    Ram: Yes that too is added to the list … i was actually waiting for you to add to this list (since you are a resident of Triplicane)
