The art of making designs…

Rangoli is the folk art of our country. This is one of the finest art form found in India though it presently is not very popular. Rangoli is normally made in rituals and other Indian festivities moreover we can see Rangoli in almost every festival of India. Rangoli is actually an art with dust where the main color is white. The white color is dyed in different colors to form different beautiful colors. Rangoli has got different names in different places. And in some places it is taken as an important subject. Like in Shantiniketan it is considered as an important subject like other subjects. In Bengali it is known as Alpana.
