The Rangoli has been created out of vibrant, neon colours by artists Javairia M Rafiq and Saima Zaidi. The two artists have introduced these celebratory and happy patterns around the fountain in the Frere Hall gardens.
Traditionally, Rangoli patterns have been created in the subcontinent by women at entrances and open floorings. Dyes, flour and coloured grains are used to bring the vibrant and homely effect to it. “The idea was to bring maximum space involvement of people in here,” said Rafiq. “These colours though very bright produce a relaxing effect. Especially at night, the ambience is a scene to behold.”
