Wordless Wednesdays : A celebration of green

A world of green-
some natural, some man-made
a carpet at the Taj, Mumbai
the hanging vines in a brewery in Bangalore
rain-drenched leaves
painted steps
waters in a pool
mountains dotted with trees
fields in different hues
peacock feather rongoli*
made on Diwali**

*rangoli- colored powder used to make designs on the floor or to play Holi
**Diwali – festival of lights

    Lots of lovely greens! That peacock feather rongoli is beautiful, so intricate. It must have taken hours of work!

      Thank you, Sarah for checking out the post. We thought they were real feathers when we first saw it. Only when we read the notice we realized that it was made with colored powder. This was at the Taj hotel,Mumbai. I agree it must have taken a lot of time to do it so perfectly.

    Hi Smitha, this is lovely and I enjoyed the Oscar Wilde quote although I disagree with his thoughts.

      Hi Robbie, thank you! It’s been a while. I know what you mean. Most of his thoughts are debatable.
