The Clerke and Joy Diwali Rangoli

For the last week the city has been lit up with flashing LEDs and laterns for Diwali, the Hindu festival of light, and the air has been filled with bangs – fireworks and firecrackers launched from balconies, windows, on the street, in the park. We, in incredibly reserved fashion, decided to partake in a quieter aspect of Diwali by making a Rangoli outside our front door – a carefully arranged powder paint doormat to welcome wealth into our house. We thought it would be easy. It was not. It was fun, though. So here, in all it’s glory, a step-by-step guide to the Clerke and Joy Diwali Rangoli (slightly lumpy, very messy, asymmetric, but hey, we tried)

Oh, and here’s an ‘artfully blurry’ photo of our street at night.
