Diwali is known as the festival of lights. Colours, on the other hand, play an essential role in Diwali celebration. Houses are painted and adorned with a plethora of improvements. People shop for new clothes and gifts for their loved ones. However, colours are most easily recognised in the traditional rangoli motifs that adorn each home's passage. The word Rangoli is derived from "Rang" and "Aavali", which means row of colours.
Rangoli is an age-old Indian custom that is still practised today. Alpana, Aripoma, and Kolam are some of the other names for Rangoli. It is a centuries-old art form that is practised in practically every home during the festive season. Designs are often passed down through generations, with some dating back hundreds of years.
The designs and colours of rangolis vary by area, but they all follow the same basic patterns. The geometrical structure of a Rangoli is usually symmetrical. Natural elements such as animals, flowers, and other biological aspects are frequently used in design patterns.
Making Rangoli is not a cakewalk; it requires skills, patience and creativity. But if you are not a rangoli artist; no need to worry. Many exciting yet simple-to-create rangolis will surely help you uniquely celebrate Diwali.
All you need is a spoon, a fork, a few bangles, a round plate, an outliner pen, fillers and a sprinkler for a fantastic Diwali rangoli.
