The Art of Rangoli is the ultimate dance form for me.

As my eyes follow the colorful lines curving through and around the perfectly spaced dots, my spirit soars… Dances in unison with the lines…

One Love…

As my eyes fell on the two peacocks in the Rangoli gazing lovingly at each other, I had my answer.

For a long time, I had been pondering over the question – not very intent on the answer, but the question remained in my mind nevertheless.

Why is there this unquenchable thirst, an all-encompassing pressing need for a companion in this world? People reach out for love, seek out their mates endlessly, again and again, despite innumerable discouragements and setbacks.

It is almost like they are drawn to their partner almost unknowingly, by some universal force…

Then it hit me! Yes, it’s the Universe – bringing the two together always.

Of course, didn’t God create everything in pairs? No wonder every living being in Nature is drawn to its mate in a love that is universal and unique at the same time…

One Love.

Dancing lines…

… and a splash of colors… The beauty of the Rangoli appeases my senses in more ways than one.

In fact, I feel it goes beyond the five senses and touches my soul.

As I gaze on and on at this amazing piece of creative art that is Rangoli, I am bathed in a glow of incredible peace and well-being.

The flowing lines and vibrant colors seem to have a therapeutic effect on me.

Is it the symmetry? Is it my penchant for order? The repeating patterns of lines and curves have a calming effect on my nerves…

The two sides of my brain – the left with its logical thinking and reasoning abilities, and the right with its intuitive abilities – seem to get balanced when I am creating, looking at Rangoli.

I feel centered, emotionally stable.

Rangoli, true to its meaning being associated with color and cheerfulness, with its symmetry and visual appeal, has a rejuvenating effect on me.

I am enamored by this Sacred Geometry, I am enraptured by this Divine Art of Rangoli.

It’s simple, really…
