rangoli-patternsHey it is Diwali. Diwali is my favorite festival and I am exited to wait for that festival. I love the legend of Diwali. it says it is celebrated to mark the victory of Lord Rama over evil King Ravana. People of Ayodya welcomed Lord Rama when he returned to Ayodya after defeating Ravana. They lighted Lamps all over the street to spread the joy and happiness, and exchanged sweets and victory messages.  I love Diwali because it is celebrated as the victory of light over darkness.  Now Rangoli is an integral part of Hindu culture and Hindus believe Rangoli is a welcome symbol for Gods. So without Rangoli How can we celebrate a festival which started as welcome festival for lord Rama after his victory over evil king Ravana
