Rangoli

Americans of Indian descent have introduced the beautiful but impermanent tradition of decorating the ground and especially entrance ways with colored powders, spices and sands. The practice known as Rangoli is waning in both India and the United States but cultural practitioners such as Amita Bhakta are encouraging a revival of this ancient tradition. Journey Proud drops in on Alabama’s first-ever Rangoli competition at the annual Diwali festival in Florence.
