Diwali, a worldwide Indian ceremony by many and celebrated too. It’s one of the most beautiful and enthusiastic sights you’ll ever see, and you’ll definitely enjoy being in the scene. The colors of the festival are simply things you cannot ignore.
Rangolis are common decorations for this festival. Rangoli for Diwali, is like pancake for syrup. They both go hand-in-hand. They are actually designed as a way of asking goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, for blessings.
Rangoli for Diwali traditions go as far back as 5 millennia ago, for Indian people decorations. It is weird, since there are myths about rangoli too, such as the ability to control the ants in people’s homes.
The most widespread are simple designs such as blossoms, petals, and anything with a simple shape. Other Hindu gods are often included into the ceremonies, Including Ganesha, Laxmi or Rama. Diya Lamps, Swatiskas, Om, and other Hindu religious signals, may be found in Rangolis as well.
Within Tamil Nadu, a state in South-India, ‘Deepavali’ is celebrated by the citizens, rather than ‘Diwali’. Rangolis there are called ‘Kolam’, which tend to not be as colorful as Rangoli designs for Diwali. The name differences also occur with different states in India too, and also for different ceremonies, such as Pookkalam in Kerala during Onam.
