Here are a collection of our Rangoli designs.
We made our own Mehndi hands.
The lights have a two fold significance. They are lit to welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, into people's homes. They are also linked to the story of the return of Rama and Sita from their fourteen year exile. According to the ancient tale, the people of their kingdom lit thousands of clay lamps to welcome the exiles back home.
