Deepavali, also known as Diwali, is celebrated by the hindus world-wide. The word "Deepa" means "light" and "avali" means "a row", which makes Deepavali the "festival of light". Traditional Rangoli motifs adorn the frontyards and entryways of every house. People light earthen lamps called "diya" on this day and thank Goddess Lakshmi for the wealth and happiness that she has bestowed upon them. On this day, people visit friends and relatives and also exchange gifts and sweets. Diwali teaches us to drive away the ignorance, the darkness around us and to uphold the true values of life. This Rangoli pattern shown here is an example for anyone who wants to make a Rangoli. After the outlines are drawn, the rangoli is colored with bright powdered dyes/colored sand.
