Tradition of Rangoli on Diwali Festival

As we all know about Rangoli in Diwali, we are decorating walls and the entrance of the house. People also used Rangoli to decorate the place of worship and the place where they used to take meal along with their guests. Rangoli is the art of Maharashtra but now a day’s it’s been used or created in almost every part of India on festivals as well as on regular days. It is set up with colorful rice powder, kumkum (vermillion) and turmeric powder (Haldi). It is the creativity of creator. Mostly people used to create religious and ritual designs. The religious symbols like Swastik and Om are used profusely. Besides this the shapes of triangles, circle and stars are also used. Creation of Rangoli doesn’t need any formal training. This is what we get in legacy from our elders. People create multi colored and multi pattern Rangolis and also draw the images of deity in Rangoli Pattern. People also use the petals of different flowers to create Rangoli.

 

On Diwali Goddess Lakshmi’s pooja is of great importance. So people create Rangoli at the door stem to welcome her in their house and also to please her. At Pooja place (the place where people worship goddess ) a circular Rangoli is created in the middle of which resides the image of Goddess. Around the picture, the petals of Lotus flower are drawn as Goddess Laksmi loves this flower very much. In some Rangolis the shapes representing the different planets are created as these planets are believed to affect the one’s life very much.
