My Stint with Rangoli and Designs!!

Helloo everyone,

A very very HAPPPY DHANTERAS to all of u, a bit late I know but had been running whole day. Trying to catch up with all the pending tasks… pheewww!!

Happy-Dhanteras @2013

Diwali Β πŸ™‚ “Festival Of Lights” πŸ™‚ is just 2 days to go and we all must have been super-busy with all the decoration, lighting, welcoming guests and the endless preparations for the festivity.

How many of you went for GOLD shopping today.. πŸ˜€ :D. It’s not only hauling, distributing gifts, lighting candles and diyas that makes Diwali one of my favorite festival but I find it much more exciting as its time to adorn the entrance with “RANGOLI“. Β I don’t like burning crackers.. actually I get scared of being so close to fire πŸ˜› and have been celebrating “Green and Safe Diwali” for past many years which made it just a bit boring for me. So, keep up my spirits I started finding substitute and the best thing I came up with is drawingΒ Β “RANGOLI“. I am really poor at drawing but my better half always help me out with that… he prepares the canvas and defines the boundaries and my job is to fill with the Colors of LOVE. <3 <3.

Colors Under Prepration

This time we made out Rangoli extra special by preparing all the raw material at home, no ready made colors from the market. I must tell you it was a super tiring job and couldn’t be done alone, so be sure of helping partner before taking up this task!Β Colors Done with some neons as well..

I am not a fan of abstract designs as I am not able to visualize them, I like it better with pictures so It has to be a “Ganesh JI” or a Colorful Peacock for me!Β Few more design that I liked..

    Lovely Rangolis! You have done justice to the original. I was wondering how you made the colors for the Rangoli. Could you share that with me. πŸ™‚

    You made a beautiful rangoli! I am plannign to make one tomorrow morning, if I get a few hours to spare.. lets see. How did you make the colours at home?

      Thank u so much Swati.. πŸ™‚ .. Waiting for ur rangoli pics now.. πŸ™‚
      Actaully got some cheap rice (10-15 rs/kg) and then grind them a bit in mixer for a more fine raw material.. then pick up ur favorite water and mix it in small quantity of water and the put the rice into the bowl and then let them dry on newspaper.. Thats it!! πŸ™‚
