        verticalArrangement = Arrangement.Center,
        // below line is used for specifying

            modifier = Modifier.padding(16.dp),
            // below line is use to add color 
            // to our progress bar.
            color = colorResource(id = R.color.purple_200),
            // below line is use to add stroke 
            // width to our progress bar.
