Vtsalya is a selection of handpicked designs from the author's collection of rangolis, which she has created over a period of time. They have been made with great love, care and attention to details for special occasions like the birthdays of family members, anniversaries, festivals like Diwali, Dussehra, New Year, etc. They take hours, and in some cases, days to make and is a process the author terms `immensely enjoyable'. However, since the lives of these rangolis are very short, this book is created to give longevity to these designs, and in that process, be used as a coffee table book, adding aesthetic value to the décor of the place or perhaps inspire other artists in any way possible.
Featured in this book are mostly freehand rangolis along with some traditional kolams with a twist, galicha (carpet) rangoli design, portrait rangoli and pookalam.
This book is intended for aesthetic use, and this is not a rangoli tutorial book.
