Sanskarbharti Rangoli on Padwa

Stencil Rangoli

Template Rangoli

This is a new type of Rangoli which called template rangoli. Whats new in it is i am using a design cutout of wood. As you can see red coloured design which very basic shape of mehendi design etc. is highlight of this rangoli. I use wood for its base and applied red oil-paint on it. For decorating it, i use white pearls and blue kundans or stones at the corners of design. In center i put mirrors and yellow kundans. This kundans and pearls makes this template look different for other rangolis.
After that, at down side stensil of rangoli, which is having design of laxmi's feet. which is very religious and imp part of rangoli.

About Diwali festival

        Diwali is one festival that every Hindu will look forward to is Diwali. It is the time to shop for new clothes, to clean and spruce up the home as it is a joyous celebration stretched over five days. Homes sparkle with diyas and lights, the air is laden with fireworks' smoke and the kitchens abuzz with activity for loads of sweets and savouries are to be dished up.

        As rows of diyas light up the home, it symbolises the victory of righteousness and lifting of spiritual darkness. Thus it is called festival of lights. Diwali is celebrated twenty days after Dassera, on amavasya (new moon), the fifteenth day of the dark fortnight of the month of Ashvin.

The five days of Diwali have their own identities and significance. They are known as Dhantrayodashi (Dhanteras), Narakchaturdashi (Kali Chaudas), Diwali (Laxmi Pujan), Bali Pratipada (Govardhan Pooja) and Bhaubij (Bhaiya Dooj).

Diwali cannot be explained in nutshell. But if it all has to be to done, we could say…. It is a festival of lights that illuminates love in our hearts… It is a festival that touches the roots of our souls with sweetness…..

Wish u all very Happy and Prosperous Diwali....!!!!!

Rangoli - Sanskarbharati


Rangoli is a 1 more Indian tradition. This rangoli called as "Sanskarbharati" This rangoli drawn with 5 fingers of hand. Its each shape has some meaning of this rangoli. I drawn this rangoli before 4-5 years in Diwali. 

Diya Thali(plate) for Diwali

After long time I made Diya thali for Diwali celebration. This is a festive season. And i just love to decorate my house with Rangoli, diff diya's, lamps.
For making this Thali, i use ceramic clay plate for base. And 8 molds of Diya. Even i am using Tulasi mold in center. It looks perfect with all Diya's.
I use metalic colours, golden colour and kundans to decorate it. First i colour all diya's and then i stick them to my plate.

Diya for Diwali festival

It's a festival time!!! "Diwali", India's biggest festival. This is a festival of Lights, Colours. For this occasion we decorate our house with different Diya's or lamp , Rangoli. We make so many types of sweets.
I bring the mold of Diya from market, it was only brown in colour. I used red, yellow, green, white oilpaints to colour this. But before colouring them we need to wash them with water, otherwise paint will be not spead evenly.
