This video shows how we can create a beautiful and simple Pongal pot kolam with just 5 by 5 dot pattern.  The Pongal or Sankranti Pot is drawn with 5 by 5 dots.  The birds , sugarcane and the sun are drawn free hand.  I have shown only the white rangoli 

         
The harvest festival Pongal is when in the villages ,  sweet Pongal is made with freshly harvested rice, jaggery .  It is celebrated with great pomp and splendour.  A new Pot is purchased painted with designs .  Sweet Pongal is prepared and offered to the Sun God as a mark of respect and gratitude for helping the farmers in agriculture.  Two fully grown sugar cane are also offered.  Kolam  are drawn in the area and at the entrance of the house also with generous use of colours.  When the sweet Pongal starts to overflow everyone around shouts "Pongalo Pongal".  There is joy and happiness all around.
