Rangoli: Sankranti Muggu
Created by Sailaja Sharma on 2014-01-09,

Pongal or Sankranti as we call in Andhra is basically a festival of thanksgiving to Sun and Lord Vishnu. It is an agriculture or rather harvest festival and celebrated very well in small town and villages. this festival brings back my child hood memories when all of our family members used to meet at my grandma's place and celebrate. Kolams, dolls kolu, bhogi bonfires, Kanuma cattle worship, going to latest movies and what not...I miss it all. Hence this kolam.

Rangoli: Diwali Rangoli

This Rangoli is one which I have created for Diwali 2013. This is drawn on paper. This was posted on my blog.

I keep on creating new Rangolis for various festivals and post some on my blog- http:/summersofindia.blogspot.in

Some times it takes me days to create one Rangoli and some times it just takes a few hours. This one took me three hours. I wanted, lotuses, Diyas as an offering to Goddess Lakshmi. I also wanted the chain rangoli to be part of this. Hence the creation.

I like simple easy to draw Rangolis as I feel that on festive days we have to do so many things and spending lot of time on Rangoli gives me tension and spoils the festive spirit.
