thought to bring good luck. this
practice is showcased during occasions such
as festivals, auspicious observances, marriage
celebrations and other similar milestones and
gatherings. Rangoli art is an adornment or decoration that
has different names in different states of India;
for example, Chaookpurna in Chhattisgarh,
mmandn in Rajasthan, aripan in Bihar, alpana in
Bengal and Maharashtra, rangavallie in
Karnataka, Kollam in Tamil Nadu, muggu in
Andhra Pradesh, alikhthap in Kumaon, kolam in
Kerala, and saathiya in Gujarat. Not just in
names, the designs also vary as per the region.
In Maharashtra, rangoli are drawn on the doors
of homes so that evil forces attempting to enter
are repelled. During the festival of Onam in
Kerala, flowers are laid down for each of the ten
days of the celebration, the design growing
larger and more complex every day. In Tamil
Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, the kolam
is drawn upon the ground or floor daily. In Rajasthan
the mandana are painted on walls.
