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!!

Diwali Special - Free hand Rangoli
Couple of years ago, on a boring afternoon, just before Diwali i needed some interesting job to pass the time. And Lo, here is the outcome i cherish every year i look at the picture saved. This wonderful art piece started without any picture in mind, totally free hand, took us two people with an artistic mind to create this. We used dinner plates, plastic tubs and buckets for the circles and then few minutes of thinking in between for the next steps.....well you dont have to spend so much time, as here is my idea and you can use it as-is or bring in some modern designs.
But the day you have to sweep it away, you will feel so bad...it will be your treasure too !!
