Doorstep Rangoli ...

A traditional Indian artform, this rangoli though has taken modern touch and created by paint on pavement tiles. In Indian cultures, all guests and visitors occupy a very special place, and a rangoli is considered as an expression of warm hospitality. In particular, the festivals are widely celebrated with rangoli, since at this time; people visit each other's homes to exchange greetings and sweets.
