Nearly everybody feels the impact of colours on their feelings. Red, orange, brilliant yellows, and shades of pink can invigorate and lift up the mood. A woman wearing them will feel more joyful and will draw joy to her as well. Blue can be calming and purifying; greens can be rejuvenating, etcetera.
Rangoli is an old artistic expression that is found all through India. Intricate patterns are skilfully drawn on the doorsteps or courtyards of Hindu dwellings and temples. They make use of white “pulis” or dots, around which lines are drawn, creating beautiful sacred geometry forms, or images of nature such as flowers and animals. Rice, flour, sand, turmeric, vermilion and flower petals are all used to fill up the forms with vibrant colours. The patterns and motifs used in the Rangoli´s are handed down from generation to generation as family traditions. Rangoli in Sanskrit signifies and design in colour and or all the more expressively & the declaration of imaginative vision through the cheerful utilisation of colours.
