My colorful Diwali

So I did manage a few things from the to-do list I had made for Diwali this year.

One of them was to make a rangoli. Its been AGES since I tried my hand at it, since its always raining here on Diwali day, and not quite possible to make one. This year, the rain gods were more generous with me, and waiting till after the Diwali day...and I got to make my rangoli.

I did the outline, and the hubby and I together filled in the color. Mr. Perfect did a much better job than me of course, and filled in about 70% of it!

Here are some pics.

Thanks Ria :) Was so excited when I made it! It takes a bit of practice to get it right. Tumhare ghar pe kaun banata hai? Mom?

Akshay said...

Vibrant!! It looks so good!!!

I usually paint a rangoli.... but someone needs to draw a design...lol

Veens said...

sundar hai :)

i really like u get it so well done :D I would have had unsymmetrical idiocy lol :D

it is fantastic..

aneri_masi said...

@akshay, you paint it? like with wet paint? Would like to see yours too :)

@veensie, thank you :) I am quite proud of it too...since I made the design myself and all too.

Samby said...

Rangoli requires patience maybe..pata nahi ..I havent tried... College me tha south me bahut hota tha... jammu me to rare hai...

Pehle banate the ? pehle try ke liye to bahut accha hai... pehel bhi banay hai lagta hai...

nice pics too

Preeti said...

WOW! like W.O.W!!!

Sabita said...

hehehe..That's what husbands are for!!!

aneri_masi said...

@manasa, thank you :)

@samby, kitna analysis karte ho, baba! To answer your questions...
I guess it does take some patience, but its amazing to see the design emerging with every pinch of color that falls in! I used to do it every day in my Diwali vacations when I was in high school...India mein. Such fun it used to be!

@preeti, thank you :)

@sabita, true. But I have also heard horror stories of why husbands should be kept miles away from anything like this..some of them have such a knack of ruining things!
