There is just one line left on the four sides , a small circle is placed on either side to complete the design. Why don't we try this for Diwali , this is as creative as one can get with a rangoli with just lines and few colours. The final image shows how beautiful a rangoli can become with just lines and a few patterns.
Diwali is one of the most auspicious festivals and celebrated in various parts of India , USA , UK , Europe and many other countries unlike some festivals that are celebrated at a state or regional level, Diwali is celebrated through out the world where ever Indians live. Padi kolam or rangoli designs with lines are drawn for auspicious occasions and festivals. We can try this beautiful art for Diwali or Laxmi Puja decoration, or for Bhai dooj . We decorate this kolam with a kaavi ( red ochre ) border when drawn on Fridays, festivals and functions like wedding , house warming . The images should be self explanatory for the steps in drawing this rangoli . It can be drawn free hand also but I have used a 4 by 4 dot pattern.
