“Beauty is the shadow of imperfection.” – Simon Van Booy

With the onset of festive season, this is my first rangoli for the season. Though the lines are crooked and imperfect it does capture the festive vibe.

Happy Shankranti to everyone celebrating it!!!

Happy Rangoli!!!

“Cultures grow on the vine of tradition” – Jonah Goldberg

The above rangoli represents abundance with pots brimming and overflowing with milk. The festival Makar Shankranti celebrates the Sun God entering into Capricorn(Makar) constellation thus Sun starts its journey in the Northern Hemisphere. This is also a harvesting festival(since most of our ancestors were farmers) so people pray to Sun for abundance and prosperity.

A chariot for the Sun God 🙂

Happy Rangoli!!!

“Fly high but keep the soul connected to root” – Amlan

Sankranti is also a festival when kids and adults alike fly kites. So I decided to make kite my theme. Actually.. the truth is I just kept making a square rangoli but still wasn’t satisfied because it didnot look complete. Then my husband came to my rescue and suggested I make the tail to make it look like a kite.  If not for him I would have broken my back on day one of the festival. And for what ??? so that the cow can eat it in 15 mins. I used rice flour and flower petals to make it and the cows might have thought that I was serving breakfast …. uffff

So much for my eco friendliness!!!

Happy Rangoli!!!

“Have no fear of perfection, you will never reach it” – Marie Curie

Peacock has been my recent obsession…. for no reason what so ever. Trying to draw all types of peacocks and in different ways 🙂

Happy Rangoli!!!

“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life” – Wayne Dyer

 

It’s festive season and one of the main traditions about Shankranti is Rangoli. Rangoli is one of the folk art in which patterns are created on floor, courtyard or living rooms using rice flour, colored powder, colored sand or flower petals. Its done daily for a month.  I couldn’t do it for the entire month so I plan to do some rangolis during the last week.

You will have to excuse my free hand drawing skills with rice flour and colored sand where there is no room for mistakes. If you want to correct your mistake all you have to do is wash the entire thing with water and redo it again. Phewww…..

Happy Rangoli !!!
