Happy Diwali!!!!



Happy Diwali peeps!!
My first Diwali at my Inlaw's place and had a really great time. This is the rangoli that I made outside their door. They were quite thrilled with it(I hope!;)).

for the clueless, a rangoli is artwork(usually patterns and designs) made outside ones home using coloured powder. Its quite standard practise during the festival of Diwali(festival of lights)

Happy Diwali and really beautiful rangoli pictures. Rangoli is a part of diwali celebration. Diwali is a festival of lights and this is a series of five day festival. on different different days of festival, people do different different rangoli work. and really it is amazing. All Indains are celebrated this festival with great joy and exchange Diwali Gifts with one another. And non resident indians also send online diwali gifts to india to relatives and near and dear one.
