The People's Station Radio 90.5 FM
invites you to participate in our
6th Annual Divali Rangoli Contest
Rangoli is a beautiful art form originating in India that uses a variety of materials to create beautiful patterns on the floor or a tabletop. The geometric designs may also be religious symbols that are powerful. Rangoli creation is also found in Hindu mythology. The art of drawing unique Rangoli designs is considered an auspicious sign, they are drawn meticulously and with bare fingers to ward off all evils. They are often beautiful and unique, and they have the ability to inspire feelings of joy and peace. Rangoli for Divali are designed as a gesture to welcome Goddess Lakshmi into a home or other space.
