Welcome Spring

With the advent of spring and its myriad colours of life, lets welcome it with this madhubani floor art of a conch shell heralding the season ahead.

A DIY project was undertaken to decorate the interiors of the "Puja pandal" for  the celebration of  "Vasant Panchami".
Steps:Two old cardboard boxes were taken and a disc cut out to fix a light bulb onto them. Four wooden frames were fitted onto the four corners.Filled the empty boxes with a sand sack,so it doesn't topple over and covered it with a wood finish chart paper. Measured the cloth required to cover it around.Got it painted in Madhubani art with the "Ink pot and feather pen" and the Veena (musical instrument) symbolising the goddess of knowledge, music and art - Goddess Saraswati. Wrapped the cloth around the wooden frames and stuck it with glue. 
Voila! we have two lovely handcrafted standing lamps to light up the place.  
All ready to be placed in the perfect setting now.
The walls are adorned with a riot of colours in madhubani paintings all drawn in-house by the talented ladies of our Puja committee.

A chandelier centrepiece and some hanging lamps have been made out of handmade papers with cutwork  patterns done and pasted over an old waste laminate frame.

Blessings from the goddess.

Now comes the final outcome of our efforts in decorating the  temporary abode for the goddess.With streaks of "basanti" the sunshine yellow as the main colour. Filling up the dark corners of our life and spreading the light of knowledge around.  

Stay blessed all.
