Rangoli - 318

Carpet of Roses



19 to 1 straight dots. Follow the design above. 

As the Sun rises in the east on this winter morning, the reds and oranges, yellows and pinks  of the morning sky is beautiful to watch through the curtains of the mist. These colours are reflected in this design. 

Hope you like it.

Watch out for more in my next posts......

Rangoli - 317

Pumpkin Flowers and Gobbillu



15 dots- 3 rows in the center, 13, 11, 9......till 3, straight dots. You can follow the design from the picture above. 


Gobbillu are cow dung shaped into balls or pyramid shape, decorated with flowers (pumkin and marigold flowers), turmeric and vermilion  and kept on the Rangolis and worshiped. 

It is known as Gobbi Puja. It is done through out this month till Sankranti. They are made and worshipped daily morning and evening and each day they are patted to a wall to make cow dung cakes. Once thoroughly dried they are used as fuel. These cow dung cakes are biodegradable and cheap, made by every house in the villages. However the  Gobbi cow dung cakes are used for the sacred fire on the Rath Saptami Day when sun God is worshiped. 

Gobbi as per some peoples opinion is Gowri Devi or Consort of Lord Shiva and worshipped as such by maiden girls for a good husband and good future. Some feel that Goobi means Gopis. meaning cow herd girls also known as Gopikas, Gopemma. They were known for their devotion to Lord Krishna. 

So in this Rangoli, I have drawn Gobbi (cow dung balls) with marigold flowers and pumpkin flowers in between. I will write about these in detail in another post.

Watch out for more Rangolis....

Rangoli - 316

Leaf plates and Pongali


We Indians in olden days used plates and cups made from leaves. Even now we use when ever we can. These are called Vistaraakulu in Telugu and Patroli in Hindi. These are biodegradable and environment friendly. 

Well this is Dhanurmasam- whole month we Worship lord Vishnu and offer him different Prasadam made of rice like Pongali, Pulihora and Dadhyojanam. 

That is why I used this theme.

This is 19 to 1 straight dots.  Watch out for more Rangolis.....

Rangoli - 315

Hello Friends!

It has been a long time since I posted. I was busy with many personal matters and also my health was on and off. 

Ok, from tomorrow we are starting  our Dhanurmasam-and the month long Rangoli till Sankranti. I will be posting Rangolis. Hope you like them.

Here is my first one for the season:

Flowers and berries


16 dots- 2 rows in the center, 14, 12 and so on straight dots till 2 dots. You can easily follow the rest.

Sorry for the ugly watermark. But so many of my creations have been stolen by others who put them on their sites and blogs even claiming the copyright. 

Well look out for more Rangoli designs......
