Rangoli – Featuring my Aunts

Here’s a link to lovely film on Rangoli – the folk art of powder painting that was practiced across the length & breadth of India by all housewives. ALL.

Video by the Films Division with creative contributions from my greatgrandaunt and featuring my late grandaunt and aunts.

Do watch the superb vintage video below:

Now this art is mostly dying out in big cities … for we – the new gen of housewives – are too busy with recent fads like gyms & blogs & such. šŸ˜¶

I know how to make rangolis but I haven’t taught my daughter. Or my sons.

Guilty.
