Rangoli Designs for Diwali

In Bangalore, huge colorful rangoli designs are drawn in front of every household. The front yard is even more colorful during Diwali.

So what’s Rangoli?

A rangoli is a colourful design made on the floor near the entrance to a house to welcome guests. During Diwali, Hindus draw bright, colorful Rangoli designs. The patterns are traditionally drawn with the fingers using flour, rice grains or coloured chalk.

Join me and lets draw colorful rangoli’s this Diwali season and welcome Goddess Lakshmi into our homes and hearts.

Here is one such Rangoli drawn by my nephew GuruPrasad.

        In front of puja room, usually they put the shanka on right, chkra on left and padma in the mid. Infront of the padma, devara paada is drawn..

  3. Your collection is very beautiful….being an art lover it spurs me to introduce a rangoli catagory on my site; intuitionlight.com……..thanks

    nice design…looks like Mr.Guruprasad has his own customized stencils to make designs perfect. We would be glad if he (or you) can share more of his creations. Also you can join http://www.iKolam.com, which is more dedicated to rangolis/ kolams, where i too have my small contribution there :-)
