Rangoli: Christmas Rangoli

We normally decorate our office for Christmas. This year, I used rangoli as a Team Building exercise for my Team. This was the first time they were seeing a rangoli. So to make it easy, I created a template of a christmas carpet by copying several pictures from clip arts. I showed them how to draw simple lines with sand. We then made the rangoli using colored sand. It was a huge success with several people visiting our department just to watch the rangoli (sand art as my team named it). Several of my team said they were going to try it at home too. Thought I will share this with all kolam lovers. Hope you enjoy it!

My Golu consists of a main golu and a theme Golu. My main Golu is made of 7+5+1 padis; 7 steps in the front, 5 to the side and 1 that connects both. Theme Golu is based on mythological stories and Indian traditions and I change this every year. This year I chose Ramayan. This picture here is the main Golu.

I tried a different way of arranging my padis. I usually have 7 padis and with my increasing dolls, I needed more space and so thought of something different and created another set of padi to the side and connected them with a single padi. This is my main Golu. To the side I have a theme golu. This year my theme is Ramayana with 12 scenes. The photo here is the main Golu

My golu theme this year is Ramayana. I have created 12 scenes depicting the Ramayana. Here is the picture of the scene where Guha helps Rama, Seetha and Lakshmana cross the river.
