No Deepavali is complete without a rangoli. Rangolis are an expression of the myriad colours that are associated with Diwali.
Here are a few rangolis that I made this year for Diwali. The peacock rangoli was etched out and colored just outside my front door and the Ganesh rangoli in the foyer of my house. The ‘Om’ rangoli is a table top one.
For all three rangolis I have used colored powders, mirrors, peacock feathers and small flowers. All the rangolis have been adorned with diyas.
