KOLAM:-
-------
Kolam in simple terms is the line passing through n X m dots. When n and m are
increasing it is difficult to produce the kolam. I likes to share with you the simplified method
of producing new kolams with any values for n and m. Simple kolam is circle with centre to
generalize this idea, In kolam all the dots has to be covered by line.
Take for example 3 by 3 dots
eg.,
Sample 1:
---------
Kolam with single dot
|-----|
| |
| 0 |
|-----|
Sample 2:
---------
Kolam with 3 by 3 dots
Step 1:
0 0 0
0 0 0
0 0 0
Step 2: Keep dots mid-point between horizontal and vertical dots as shown below.
0 # 0 # 0
# # #
0 # 0 # 0
# # #
0 # 0 # 0
Step 3: Joint all the #'s

Sample 3:
---------
Step 1:
-------
Let us take the following case:
0 # 0 # 0

0 # 0 # 0

0 # 0 # 0
Step 2:
-------
Corresponding Kolam is:
