  1. Isn’t this amazing? I well remember the extraordinary effort of the women in India to decorate their homes. Many would also make a floor decoration after they had swept the bare earth in front of the door. I even bought a bamboo stick with holes drilled into it which you filled with chalk and rolled on the ground: hey presto a beautiful pattern! We don’t need elaborate or expensive equipment, techniques or even places to be creative every day do we?
