In this post i am sharing about most beautiful and Incredible Art Patterns of India "Rangoli designs" by starting with a beautiful 2014 Rangoli design.
Rangoli, also known as Kolam or muggu is a Folk Art from India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali, Onam, Pongal and other Indian festivals. They are meant to be sacred welcoming areas for the Hindu deities. The ancient symbols have been passed down through the ages, from each generation to the next, keeping both the art form and the tradition alive. Similar practices are followed in different Indian states: Muggulu in Andhra Pradesh; Kolam in Tamil Nadu; Mandana in Rajasthan; Chowkpurna in Northern India; Alpana in West Bengal; Aripana in Bihar; Chowk Pujan in Uttar Pradesh; and others.
These are some Sankranthi (Pongal) special Rangolis. I am using them from Mrs.Sravani Gopal's blog with her permission.
