The real rangoli

I don’t just look for silly photos.  Here is a picture of something pretty – the artwork that I often see drawn outside Indian houses.   It’s called “rangoli” and I spotted this one on my paper round, delivering “The Rangoli”.  Our magazine began long before I arrived in Bangalore, but I assume it was named after the traditional rangoli, as both are artforms created primarily by women.

I am editing this post in August 2013, to add a photo of another rangoli, drawn by my driver’s wife.
