This is not a a very serious defect or lacuna but still prudence says that as far as possible we should avoid this situation.
Pillars and walls are constructed to support the uttaram from the basement . On the basis of padmana the height of pillar can be raised upto utharam by reducing pedestal seating called oma and the thickness of pothika ( pillar supporting bracket ) . Different types of hard stones and wood are used to make pillars of square , octagonal , circular , or 16 sided with varied designs . According to mayamatam square pillars are called brahma kanta , octagonal pillars are known in the name of vishnu kanta , circular pillars are called rudra kanta , 16 sided pillar are usually called saumya kanta and the combinations of all variety of pillars are rudra chandra . The pillar base is oma while the top is pothika. The peetham oma has strength if made with stones or hardwood . All pillars should have tenons of width equal to 1/3 of its own width. The width is equal to the diagonal base of pillar and the height is equal to half diagonal or 1/3 , 1/4 or 1/2 or less than that resembling the lotus flower or fillets. The width is known as danda . The proportionate system of dandamana is used for pillars and carvings . According to the load bearing capacity of the pillars the ratio mentioned as 1/11 and 1/4 . The wood used for pillars has the ratio 1/10 or 1/11 . For stone pillars the ratio may be between 1/8 and 1/9 . The pillars are made with mud for which the ratio will be 1/5 or 1/4 . This ratio is used in the design of columns of modern engineering practice. Certain parts of the house are governed with very extensive ancient methods of making details which are rarely used nowadays. Hence only the names are mentioned as follows wall ( bhiti ) , pothika ( support bracket ) , varotharam ( wall plate for small houses ) arudotharam ( wall plate for big houses) chututharam ( around utharam reapers ) dwara madhya sutram kazukole ( reapers ) .
