Rangoli Through The Years!

Every year, for the festival of Diwali, I decorate the front yard of our house with a big, multi colored Rangoli pattern. A Rangoli is usually made during Diwali or any other auspicious Indian festival as a welcoming area for the Gods. It is basically a colored pattern which is created on the floor using flowers, colored rice, colored sand or any other relevant material. A great way to keep traditions alive, a Rangoli adds a colorful touch to all the twinkling Diwali decorations. They are also expected to bring good luck and prosperity to the house. I have been making Rangolis for our Diwali decorations for the last 8…

Victory of Good over Evil

India celebrated the festival of Dussehra last week. Dussehra is a very popular festival which celebrates many events – the victory of good king Rama over demon king Ravana, the victory of goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasur, the festival of Navratri and the nine divine nights of fasting as well as a couple of other mythical happenings from across the country. It also marks the beginning of winter and kick starts the festive season in India, with Diwali being the next big celebration around the corner. The underlying message across each of the above events is the same – the festival of Dussehera celebrates the victory of good over evil.…
