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.
