Tips for drawing this Republic Day special rangoli with a unique teechnique

The rangoli below has been drawn using this technique.  First saffron and green lines have been drawn simultaneously.


Then the white line has been drawn with kola podi between the two colours 

Add spirals and other patterns for decorating the rangoli design. Even for the short lines and dots I have used orange, green and white . Quite a small yet awesome rangoli because of the difficult technique adopted.

Many types of rangoli are possible for the auspicious celebration of  our Republic Day. 

 Using the colours in the tricolour symbolically represent  and remind us of  the two important days in the history of our country. - Republic Day and Independence Day.  

Please note drawing two parallel lines that are visible separately comes with practice.  Drawing two parallel lines of different colours demands more practice . 

 We should ensure that the colours do not mix when the rangoli powder flows between the fingers.  Anyway it is worth it.
