Rangoli.....the painted prayers of India!!!
Also called the painted prayers, the term rangoli is derived from the words rang (colour) and aavalli ('coloured creepers'). It is known with different names in different parts of India, Kolam in Kerala, Alpana in Bengal, Madana in Rajasthan etc.
The designs are beautiful to behold & just reflect the fact that every person is born with an artistic bent of mind!!!
