My daughter aishwarya's(6 years old) rangoli on diwali

Hi

Attached is the Rangoli display made for this year Diwali celebration in Dublin. Kudos to the organizers to arrange for multicultural performances. There are 3600 people attended this function thus made it a mega diwali celebration.

This year, i planned for Carpet display in Rangoli. Owing to the difficulty in arranging for the color powders here, I designed and painted few rangoli designs already. These rangoli design includes lotus, dancing peacock, mango and elephant. Also i prepared different bharatnatyam position templates for the smaller circles in the Carpet.

Thanks to my lovely friends who has given their time and effort to make this approximately 4.5 meters Rangoli carpet display successfully.

Glad to share with you all.
Luv n Cheers
Meena

I put this rangoli on the Night before Deepavali, it took me around 40 minutes to complete the rangoli.
Guys, please comment on it. I need to improve a lot.
Thenks & Happy Deepavali to all of you...
