Colorful Patterns

I still remember when I was 10, I used to be so excited to play with those colored dust and make something that I liked. But it is not only about making one in front of your home for a festival but, also expressing your emotion and thoughts through it. Rangoli (रंगोली) is an art form that originated from Indian subordinates. It represents the happiness, positivity, and liveliness of the household. It has many names like Alpana, Saaz, Muggu, Kolam, Zuti, Mandana, etc. They are the pattern created on the floor using powered dry rice flour, quartz powder, flower petals, and colored rock. On Diwali (Indian festival), Hindus draw bright Rangoli patterns to welcome goddess Lakshmi to enter their homes. Rangoli is so famous, and it requires so much talent that some people have opted for rangoli making as their career India also conducted a wide variety of rangoli making competitions not only at a bigger level but also at schools and colleges. Shikha Sharma (famously known as 3d rangoli artist) participated in her first exhibition representing India, on an international level, and won the BEST ARTWORK PRIZE. She makes the biggest rangoli for each Indian festival which requires around 30 hours of hard work.
