Diwali is known as the festival of lights. People love to line up their homes with diyas and lanterns. New clothes are stitched and the level of excitement is simply amazing. One of the things that makes Diwali all the more beautiful is the stunning rangoli’s outside people’s homes and offices. While people at home change their rangoli everyday, offices indulge in a rangoli making competition and bring out the creative best in everyone. There are different types of rangoli’s. Let’s look at what they are:
Free Hand: In a free hand rangoli, no stencil or any other utensil is used to make the rangoli. The rangoli maker has a design in mind and the rangoli is made accordingly.
Social Message: A new trend that has emerged over the years is to deliver a social message via rangolis. This could be anything from ‘Stop Terrorism’, ‘Save The Girl Child’ or ‘Heal The World’. The scope for creativity here is limitless.
Portrait Rangoli: These rangolis are usually of portraits of freedom fighters of even Goddess Lakshmi. There is a lot of talent needed for these type of rangolis and they take a lot of time and effort to make.
