Firozabad, Nov 2 (IANS) A total of 120 girls, boys and women worked for hours to make what the organisers said was the world’s largest rangoli at the SRK college ground in this Uttar Pradesh town.

Praveeen Agarwal, secretary of the Indian Career Welfare Society which organised the show, said the rangoli was made on 12,000 sq feet of ground, using 13 quintals of red, yellow, green and black gulal.

“We also used white marble powder,” Agarwal told IANS. The rangoli was opened for public viewing later.

Participants were trained for a week. Computer aided diagram and sketches helped the artists to work on 17 different blocks simultaneously. The figure was of a human face.

The next step, the organisers said, was to get a Guinness certificate.
