For Madhulika Srikanth of India, drawing pictures with sand is a ritual. Each year in India, Srikanth gets together with friends and family to form intricate sand patterns in front of her home. This year, Srikanth will share her country's centuries-old tradition with the people of Wichita.
On Saturday, members of the Association of Hindu Students in America at Wichita State University will demonstrate the art of rangoli. Many of the society's members will wear traditional dress as they carefully place pink, green, aqua and yellow particles into a pattern on the floor of the Ulrich Museum's second floor gallery.
