Another simple diya kolam for this diwali. I had created a poster version of this kolam a while back while demonstrating kolam/rangoli in a local library.

Deepavali or Diwali is celebrated by the hindus world-wide. The word "Deep" means light, and "avali" means "in a row". Deepavali is known as the "festival of lights". Traditional Rangoli motifs adorn the front-yards and entryways of every house. People light earthen lamps called "diya" on this day and thank Goddess Lakshmi for the wealth and happiness that she has bestowed upon them.

On this day, people visit friends and relatives and also exchange gifts and sweets. Diwali teaches us to drive away the ignorance, the darkness around us and to uphold the true values of life.

The pattern shown here is an example of a Diwali kolam/Rangoli. After the outlines are drawn, the design is colored with bright colors.
