Artwork at doorfront

Traditionally such artwork, called Kolam/Rangoli, was done using rice flour. The idea, presumably, was to feast ants and flour-eating insects on festive occasions when people decorate their door-fronts with their artwork. The photo was taken from the third-floor sit-out in our Mysore apartment block.

  2. These days plastic sheets with adhesive are available. I hope the tradition with flour doesn't fade away. Great picture.

  4. What if you feed the ants and they don't go away?

    A SPLASH OF RED

    A splash of red or a dash of blue—
    Which is the color that’s just for you?

    A hint of blue or a tint of red—
    Which of these colors goes to your head?

    Of all the colors under the sun,
    Red is simply my favorite one!
