Deepawali Rangoli

Deepawali at office was different this year; the team made a colorful freehand floral Rangoli.

A part of the team is drawing the core, in the background another part of the team is mixing rangoli powder and colors.


Outer section being drawn around the core. Lines were drawn, erased and redrawn, over and again to get the right shapes.


Initial stages of color filling.


Coloring was done with lot of care, no such thing called 'undo' in this work.


Even a tea-strainer was used for sieving colored powder :)


Outlines around the colored sections.


Oil lamps join the Rangoli. Part of the team creating Kannada text "Deepawali Subhashayagalu"


The five-flame Deepa at the center.


Aaro Dalada Rangoli
Mean time, another team had drawn Rangoli at the entrance and also the stairway to ground floor.


That's our team!


Shivana-Butti creates it's own shadow rangoli.


Good team work!! A memorable Deepawali.

Here's the link to the video- Deepawali Rangoli.

It was fun making the office colorful with a Rangoli for the very first time :). And nice diyas (lamps) too and the akashbutti also.

Also missed those colleagues who were not here that day - it would have been best if everyone was present.

siddeshwar said...

@ Shilpa, I too wished all were at office on Monday. In fact we did try to get Haseena join us. Anyway, that afternoon office was the liveliest since we started working.

@ Gouher, I guess you came with the design. Though it looked easy, it wasn't easy to draw.

@ Ashwini, yes.. I wanted it to be a surprise event. I'm glad it gave happiness to all at office.

Surprises brings uncountable happiness for both who gives surprise & the one who gets surprised. :)

Gouher said...

No Sir, when the email arrived;we discussed & i did draw that design roughly on paper copying from “Google” image...i felt it easy because floral drawing is my leisure time hobby....this event made me learn how to put rangoli powder..
