Rangoli and Lightings – Diwali (4th Nov 2021)

Rangoli – Is decorating house with designs made from petals of flower, natural materials such as, turmeric powder, red powder, wheat white flour, herbal colors, leaves.

The word Rang is hindi word meaning color.

Rangoli is made on many occasions. Diwali is the biggest occasion for coloring with colors of flower petals of all colors.

The main things I made were (1) Kalash – an earthen pot, used to store holy water to pray and as a nectar of worship, (2) Earthen diya (deep) – a small earthen pot to light in oil with a thick thread/cotton (3) Om Symbol (4) Swastik Symbol.

Here are this year colors some captures.

These are floating candles in water. These are made from wax.
