A memorable Diwali experience

This resource is about Diwali experiences and preparations. Diwali is a big festival in India and is celebrated with full enthusiasm and goodness in hearts. There is a brief guideline in the article on how to make your own unique rangoli for this day.

Most memorable Diwali experience

The most memorable Diwali experience for me was seven years back. On the night of Diwali, my mother was busy in making arrangements for the prayer and I and my younger brother were sent out to distribute in the neighborhood some boxes of sweets. Down a huge Neem tree, there was a small puppy shivering in cold. I looked at my brother, he looked back at me and immediately he knew what I meant. We came back home, had more sweets and got scolding for being late again. The sweet small puppy we brought home got acceptance and mind it, this worked only because mother got convinced we must welcome all on the sacred day of Diwali.
This is the seventh Diwali with Roli, our pet now, and she sits right next to me while I write this post on her on the occasion of Diwali.

How to make this Diwali memorable with your own unique design of rangoli?

Plan a design

A clear idea about what one wants to portray through his piece of work is most important. Plan your design- make it on a piece of paper first if you want. Use old greeting cards, calendars, Google search for ideas or your put own imagination into work.

Sketch it on floor

- Make a clear sketch of your design on the floor. Use a pencil or chalk for this, it easily erases without marks in case you plan corrections.

Fill in the colors

- Now this is the most creative part of all. Fill in your best colors- bright and lively in tune with the occasion. You can use chalk powder, flowers or even water colors.

Decorate with flowers and lamps- Once the rangoli is prepared, spread around flower petals and light up lamps to decorate. You can also choose to use colorful bright glitter powders in selective areas to decorate.

I am a South Indian from Tamil Nadu. Our celebration may be a little bit different from that of North Indians. On Diwali we bath in hot water after applying sesame oil in the hair and body and then we wear new clothes. We apply some drops of turmeric on our new clothes. We eat sweets prepared for Diwali and enjoy with crackers. Sweets generally consist of athirasam, laddu, maladu etc.
