This year I have made a simple contemporary rangoli design of my own for Diwali. For those who are not familiar with making a rangoli, many things can be used for the design. Great things to use are chalk, colored sugar or colored powders, flower petals from roses or marigolds etc.
I drew my pattern with chalk and then used rangoli colors to fill in by hand. I used battery operated tea lights to avoid the danger and mess of oil and fire.
Happy Diwali to everyone and their families.
