The Modern 'Muggu' Rangoli for Sankranthi
Gone are the days of following the traditional way of rangoli with dots and lines....the creative generations are bringing in much innovative methods and ideas even into Rangoli designs.....these ideas are complicated, sometimes easy, breathtaking, sometimes timetaking, yet always extremely beautiful.
Some are using flowers only with just a basic usage of chalk or rice flour for the framework, Some are using storebought plastic stencils decorated with Kundans and colorful Stones, and Sometimes it is a combination of Zari and Sparkles.
Some are still following the circular rangoli pattern, some think of squares and Mehendi-like designs, some are doing it 'the Cutting-edge' way by chopping off the edges and creating quarter-circles. Very interestingly, some creative heads are using pebbles and vessels to draw cute little rangoli designs to impress!!
I congratulate all these talented people who are extending their creative Rangoli hands to keep the unforgettable traditions, going on, impressively!!

Ashtadalam Muggu Special
The Ashtadalam Muggu is a high energy Muggu or design especially meant for Lakshmi Poojas. This Muggu is specifically drawn on Fridays and during the Shravana Masa Lakshmi Pooja day ,i.e. Varalakshmi Vratham day.
This Geometric pattern is said to be so powerful that if your put this design in your Pooja room or Pooja Mandiram for 21 days with an intent for something that you wish for , it will happen. It requires no Pooja and all you have to do is just put this muggu. So for all those girls who want to get married or those who seek happiness, joy, a good job and prosperity should definitely try this.
It may seem slightly complicated but when you practice it regularly you will get the hang of it.
1. Put a dot in the center.
2. Put 5 tiny dots at the 8 corners.
3. Start joining the dots from the numbers 1–3 –5 – 2 – 4 and back to 1.
The count would be 1-3-5-2-4-1. If you miss even one dot you will be able to make out when it goes wrong as the lines won’t join and would be uneven.
4. Repeat the same for all the remaining dots till you get the pattern of an 8 petal Lotus.
5. You can add turmeric and saffron kumkum to enhance the beauty of this pattern.
Wishing you all lovely ladies a Happy Varalakhshmi Vratham with the choicest of abundance and prosperity!
