Hi everybody, i don't have time to put kolam to participate in the Diwali contest. But i have put a rangoli in our office to celebrate the Diwali. Iam uploading the same under Diwali Contest. Your views and suggestions please
diwali rangoli contest - 2010
I know its late,but i am not sure whether this would be uploaded for the Rangoli contest,otherwise i will be happy to have it in my gallery archives.
I am a beginner in colour rangoli.... But I believe you all like my Color Rangoli also....
This is a dotted kolam. Using 13-7, and3,2,1 on all sides( inbetween dots )this design was drawn.
I have used colored kolam powder to fill the rangoli. Since Diwali is
a festivel of lights , the darkness removed by rays of light, the kolam is decorated with Diya's. To give a divine look added flowers around the rangoli.Hope You all will enjoy this.
Hi friends this is a simple rangoli that was created by me on diwali hope it is fine.....
Daughters from young age will watch their mothers drawing Kolam. So Kolam drawing is passed down from generation to generation.
My mother always said, “Lakshmi will protect us from money-related sorrows and bring wisdom, intelligence and good luck. She is our main Deity on Diwali Day.”
My cousins and I would decorate the doorstep of our house with Rangoli designs depict diyas, flowers and Peacock, India’s National Bird.
Exchanging sweets and gifts and meeting members of the family and friends are my favourite part of Diwali.
The Diwali that I experienced in India was a religious, social and family occasion to meet, greet, chat and spend time happily. A variety of gift items including dry fruits, sweets would be exchanged between families and friends
If there was one bad aspect of Diwali, it was over-indulgence in exotic and rich food.
But as we used to say, ‘After all, it is just for a day!” Rangoli also has a religious significance, enhancing the beauty of the surroundings and spreading joy and happiness all around.
Hi, this is a dotted rangoli and called Sangu kolam. For a change I dint ouline it and it turned out to be good (Dots- 13 to 7).
This is a Decoration of Goddess Durga/Lakshi using Rangoli color.
The chamkis and diyas around the rangoli, light up the face of the goddess.
I felt the power & energy of Durga ma while working on this. passing on that energy and good wishes to all of you.
Here is a Rangoli of a side-lying Ganesha inspired by a Tanjore painting which I made for our Hindu Temple in Canton, Michigan. The temple celebrates Diwali by letting kids and adults make Rangolis inside the temple a week before Diwali, every year! That is the special importance Rangoli gets , here in Michigan! And its a beautiful sight to see little kids and adults create different rangolis with various mediums - rangoli powder, saboodhana, flowers,fruits etc. I am proud to say that this side lying Ganesha won the applaud and compliments of everyone there !
