Rangolis are something each of us can easily relate to as they signify two important things – Colours, which we Indians love and Festivities, which we Indians enjoy with our families. Be it any occasion, a family function or a festival, a Rangoli can lift the mood of everyone and can fetch you some quick compliments. It’s a great way to add colour to the otherwise gloomy monochrome life by adding some glamour to your houses. During festivals it is considered a tradition to make Rangoli throughout India. But just as we Indians are so different in our ways, the styles and techniques of doing Rangoli are different in various cultures.

Rangoli is an art, and it takes time and practice to become an expert in any art. And if you want to participate in Rangoli competitions, we have some unique Rangoli designs for you to choose from. Designs for Rangolis vary with festive type and occasion and you can choose for your competition accordingly.

Traditionally we have seen Rangolis being made with special Rangoli colours but these days we are also seeing flower petals as the ingredients for Rangolis too. Also in designs, there has been a vast change with people becoming more aware of this beautiful traditional art, indulging and creating various types of designs which people thought were not possible before.

Here we are presenting some current ideas and latest Rangoli designs for competitions happening in 2013. All of these designs are theme based, i.e they are meant for certain occasions and we believe you will find these very useful to prepare yourself for the competition.  These are unique, bold and will definitely attract much appreciation and will surely get you 1st prize in the competition.
