dipAvaLi is a series of festivals. The thirteenth day is the pre dIpAvaLi festivities (we call it nIru tuMbuva habba or jalapUrNa trayOdaSi, i.e. the vessel in which water for the next day's bath is used is worshipped to be blessed), the fourteenth day is naraka chaturdaSi, the new moon day is the dIpAvaLi on which day kEdArESvara is worshipped and lakshmI pUja is performed, the first day is bali pADyami when bali is honoured as in ONam, the second day is the brother's festival (bhAyi dUj) and the third day the sister's festival, the fourth day is nAgachaviti and the fifth day is garuDa panchami. Actually, yamunA, the river with dark waters invited her brother yama on this day on bhAyI dUj. On the occasion of the sister's festival tomorrow, here is one made especially for all the ikOlam sisters. Enjoy the i-gift

My Malaysia Team participated in the Rangoli Contest for DeepaavaLi Celebration at office. I selected this peacock design for them to make it and gave the necessary steps to draw & color. The colors where given at the contest itself and hence had to make use of the available ones. I am happy as they participated for first time and got second prize, btw all of them are chinese, & me being the virtual guide :), as i was flying back on the eventday
...inspired by one of the glass painting found on net. I have used the same peacock back in home for the festival
Hai Friends... I made this kolam Diwali day evening with wet maavu. Your views please...
