October 21 : Diwali is not just a festival of lights. Rangoli plays an integral part to brighten up your house. Rangolis are created mainly at the entrance of the house to welcome goddess Lakshmi and to bring luck and prosperity to your home. Our spiritual gurus believe that rangolis are a science of creating energy. The patterns, symbols, lines and colours, all play important roles. So you see, rangolis mean more than they meet the eye. To make your home festive ready, here are some of the easiest and colourful rangoli designs to add colour and vibrancy to the ambience. You can use coloured rangoli powders, ground rice powder, dry flour, different spices, brick powder, flowers and diyas to create beautiful rangoli designs.
Many people make Lord Ganesh’s image on their rangoli as he brings prosperity and good luck. Rangoli with Lord Ganesh in the centre surrounded by a flurry of colours should be made at the entrance of your house.
Each design and pattern used in creating a rangoli has deep implications and these designs have been passed from one generation to the next, which kept this art form alive. Rangolis with different flowers not only add a pop of colour and fragrance to your Diwali decorations but is also eco-friendly.
Rangoli designs are usually taken from nature—peacocks, swans, flowers, trees, leaves are popular. A peacock flaunts its grandeur, symbolizing beauty.
