A colourful design called a Rangoli is made near the entrance to a house to welcome guests.Traditionally they are painted or created out of coloured sand/rice powder.A symmetrical design like the one opp can be drawn on paper or card and then decorated by children with crumpled tissue paper. Also sand could be used, mixed with paint or coloured with food colourings.(mix sand with water coloured with food colourant,pour off excess and leave to dry in a warm place).Chalk could also be used to draw a Rangoli directly on to paving stones in a secure outside area.In a traditional household,the lady of the house starts her daily chores with purifying herself, drawing some Rangoli lines in front of the pooja room nd the tulsi.Her regular routine begins after this ritual.With this,her entire day remains fresh and lively.
