Tamilians are proud of their rich culture which is displayed through its rich literature, iconic architecture, vibrant cinematic culture and absorbing art. Kolam is a daily chore and forms an important ritualistic art form for Tamil Hindu women. Each day before dawn, millions of women in the town, villages and the cities of Tamil Nadu draw kolam on the thresholds and floors of houses, temples and businesses. In Tamil culture, the threshold is of great significance as the meeting point of the internal and the external and kolam is one of the many manifestations of that significance.
Speaking about the record setting event, Puneet Das, Vice President – Marketing - India, Tata Global Beverages, said, “Tata Tea Chakra Gold is a popular tea brand of Tamil Nadu, and is a blend specially crafted for Tamilians. Its new campaign is all about evoking regional pride of Tamil Nadu. Kolam is a ceremonial Tamizh art, and is a symbol of divinity and pride for many Tamilians. We wanted to highlight this blend of creativity and Tamizh ritual showcased through the initiative to enter Asia Book of Records for Most Number of Unique Kolams in a single location in Coimbatore. With this Asia Book of Records activity, the brand attempted to highlight the richness of state’s art and culture, take this art form on a larger platform and together, celebrate the Tamil way of Life”.
