On Twitter, Harsh Goenka, an industrialist, routinely tweets fascinating articles to his 1.7 million followers. This time, the RPG Group Chairperson also delighted social media users with a video of a “unique rangoli competition” in which the participating women designed their rangolis just like the patterns and motifs on the dupattas of their sarees. Rangolis are a traditional Indian art form using colored sand or powder to decorate a floor.
Mr. Goenka captioned the photo, “Unique rangoli competition…amazing to see the crafts of our people.”
The 39-second film showcases the incredible artwork created by the contestants, who were women. They are standing next to their lovely rangolis, inspired by the patterns on their attire.

The 84-year-old business mogul discussed his life’s “biggest joys” in the video.
