Diwali is never complete without a rangoli. The colourful piece of art adds a festive flair. The tradition of making rangoli designs started centuries ago and over the years the art has seen a transformation. Though it is called by different names in different Indian states it is made with common intention which is to bring good luck. Earlier, rice flour was used to create rangoli designs as it also acts as a source of food for insects and birds. Today, rangoli designs are made using colored rice, dry flour, colored rice, floating diyas, colored sand, flower petals and a burst of colours. Not only Diwali, rangolis are made during all the religious occasions. On the occasion of Diwali we bring to you some of the gorgeous rangoli patterns and designs to try this Diwali.
