Today is Day fOUR of the Five Photos Five Stories (FPFS) and my photo of the day is Rangoli: Colors of life. The picture was taken three years ago when I visited my Alma Mater, Fergusson College in Pune where the junior were celebrating their college festival. I immediately took a shot of the beautiful, Rangoli. The challenge works like that: You post a picture for five consecutive days and attach a post to it, fiction, poem or short write up. It can be anything that suits your taste. On Day Four, I am tagging my super creative friend, book author and artist Sharmistha Basu. As part of the challenge, I will tag a new person during the challenge.
Divine colors of life,
passionate made with love and care
to delight hearts.
Rangoli celebrating happiness and contentment,
to bring small joy in the simplicity of life.
A rich traditional legacy kept alive across generations,
an inheritance of vibrant art and aesthetic,
expressing various colors and symbols.
The beauty created by nature and brought to the fore by
men and women, symbolizing peace, joy and love,
serving as treat to senses.
The five elements earth, water, air, sky and fire
brings together and bind human emotions
to carve the chain of humanity.
