I have ONE page of distinctly modern patterns .... 3 out of 70 or so
patterns. The peacock is one of those three. EVerything else is at
least pre 1970 and rural. Because rangoli continue to evolve, like
henna, I felt it was important to include what's driven by
brilliantly colored commercial rangoli powder apearing in the city
markets as opposed to what's driven by rice powder leftover from
cooking in rural villages.. I didn't get into the massive sidewalk
rangoli competitions that depict epic scenes from the Mahabarata and
suchlike. I kept it to what women are doing for their own families.
