Rangoli Introduction

Art and music are blended with Indian culture since it’s originated. India has rich and powerful cultural value. Its heritage is incomparable. Rangoli is one of the rich Indian arts. Every Indian, especially women should know and how to present creatively the Rangoli design. Women will be taught Rangoli from their childhood onwards by their parents. Rangoli stands for Row of colors. Our motto of launching this website is to bring the attention of everyone to learn Rangoli. This art should not be extinct.


In this website I have presented a simple tutorial that makes everyone to learn Rangoli very easily. I have presented range of designs from expert. Basically Indians get everything from the Nature. They lived with nature the so called five elements, Earth, Water, Air, Sky and Fire. The idea of making Rangoli designs and colors is taken from butterfly, peacock, flowers, leaves etc. If you have a closer look on clouds in the sky, Cross cut trunk of a tree, nerves of a leaf and River you would notice some design pattern.


If you absorb the color combination of butterfly, Bees, peacock you wonder the nature. The Basic idea of Rangoli is creative design that filled with rich colors.
