Kolam is drawn by thousands of women across different regions of India at pre-dawn at the threshold of the house. It is an intense geometric design consisting of dots and lines that symbolically connects her sacred private realm to the public, which is traditionally occupied by men. Kolams are dense with meaning and are a blend of mathematics, art, science, and creativity.
Many women across India are challenging social and cultural norms and making a space for themselves in the public arena. They have dared to cross the threshold of their house and have created assets and developed micro, small and community enterprises in both urban and rural India.
Kolam Konnect will share the stories of grit, courage, and passion from the change makers, influencers and trendsetters across the different spectrum of the society.
We are a big tent for a female voice that needs to be heard and empowered and also inspire action for social change.
