These rangoli are screaming and they are colorful and often decorated with flowers, diya, and props like sugar cane, legumes, rice, etc. that are harvested for the season.
Muggu’s or rangoli’s are generally made by designing a series of points in patterns to create elaborate and creative designs. Simple rangoli designs with dots are the most common muggus practiced by girls.
