Half-Light, Posting another poem by Rabindranath Tagore and that is National Anthem of India Jana-Gana-Mana. This Rangoli is made on the eve of Independence Day 2015. The words above represent Vande Mataram meaning Salute to Motherland. Vande Mataram is also a national song of India written by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. Many other occasional Rangolis can be viewed on my blog. Readers can also read more poetry by Rabindranath Tagore,
