Absolutely beautiful - and to think that kids made them! I've always loved the intense colors people use in art in India. Thanks for sharing these great pics!

Yes, it is as stunning every day, to pass by and see all the decorations on the ground! Women do them, I think the young girl I took a photo of is just practicing. All the best.
