Happy Diwali

Wish all my viewers a very Happy Diwali. In West Bengal, Diwali is the eve of Kalipuja  but the basic decorations are all the same through out India and that is obviously with  "light". The best part of Diwali for me was putting  the diyas all over our house. But now, here in US it's not feasible to do that outside. So, I have to be happy with my small Diwali decoration corner.
Making "Rangoli" is not a major practice in Bengal, as a result I have never done it. I always love the Rangoli patters and designs but mostly the team effort behind every Rangoli is the key of making it so special.   Colors (sometime flowers) and lamps are the best playmates in Diwali.  I decided to make Bengali "alpana" instead of Rangoli as my tribute to "Festival of Light"

                                                           After I switched off the light.

                                                                                Alpana only


  1. That is simply amazing! What a lovely diwali decoration. you're so great in designing.
    Happy Diwali and my best Diwali greetings to you and your family.
