A simple but beautiful kalam (or religious platform) prepared using rice powder, turmeric, kumkum, and powdered leaves. This is normally done before keralites hindu priests when they do pooja at home, where idols are not used. They prepare this platform and do sankalpam (meditate upon) the god or godess and perform the pooja.
What is amazing is the efficiency with which the priest(s) draw these? It leads us immediately to the simple management principles of concentration, focus and goal.
In one way or other, we do pray and conduct all these rituals for achieving one or all of the above.
