The festival of colours, Holi, is a celebration that brings families, friends and communities together. On this day, people in India put their clean clothes aside, cover their cars and furniture, and leave their valuables in safekeeping to venture out into streets without any inhibitions. They enjoy the day with the simple pleasures of colour, music, dance and traditional sweets like gujia. It’s a day of freedom, laughter and love.
Painter Kureshi decided to make a rangoli, which is a design or traditional motif that is usually created on the floor in, or outside of, one’s house as a decoration during festivals. Rangoli are thought to bring good luck and prosperity to the home.
