Rangoli Contest

 Rangoli Contest!!

Rangoli is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Rangavalli’.

Rangoli is an art which precedes sculpture and painting. It is both an auspicious and a preliminary necessity in any religious ritual. It is customary to draw rangoli at the site of an auspicious religious ritual such as a holy occasion, a religious festival, a pious function like a wedding.

Rangoli Contest Theme – Ritu – Garland of Seasons!!

There are 6 Ritus (seasons) in a year according to the Hindu Calendar.

  • Vasanta Ritu (Spring Season)
  • Grishma Ritu (Summer Season)
  • Varsha Ritu (Monsoon Season)
  • Sharad Ritu (Autumn Season)
  • Hemant Ritu (Pre-winter Season)
  • Shishir Ritu (Winter Season)

The Rangoli Contest participants will have to choose a Ritu related topic during the registration as their theme for the rangoli they make. Rangoli competitions are held across India during all major festivals. Taste of India is very festive in the Hampton Roads region and we want you all to have fun while giving your best.
