world largest alpana


Alpana or also called Alpona are colourful motifs, painted on fortunate days such as weddings or community events in the Bengal region. Alpana art has some religious significance on the Indian subcontinent and varies from region to region.

To celebrate the coming of the Bengal new year, Airtel, supported by Prothom Alo, got together with 5 of the country’s leading artist to create history. The dream was to paint the world’s largest Alpana- a hand painted motif- on Manik Mia avenue in Dhaka Bangladesh.
