Inspired by GVK’s post, here are a few from my archives. The collage shows our home’s – my mother is an artist in it. Each day, she has a new design. I boast, none can match the finesse from her fingers esp. when the curves and straight lines are drawn. I never stop admiring her skill even at her old age.
The others are from different places. Early in the mornings, the ladies of the houses clean the gate/doorfronts of their houses with water after sweeping and then draw the rangoli. It carries the belief that it drives away evil spirits and welcoming Goddess Lakshmi into the homes and signifies auspiciousness.
