Using Traditional Sarees to add instant touch to the Festivals.........HAPPY DEEPAVALI

Hi readers,
Wish you all a very very Happy and a safe Deepavali... or Happy Diwali.
(Picture : click here)
Deepavali is a Sanskrit word - Deepa meaning light and Avali, meaning a row. It means a row of lights and indeed illumination forms its main attraction. It symbolises that age-old culture of India which teaches us to vanquish ignorance that subdues humanity and to drive away darkness that engulfs the light of knowledge. Deepavali, the festival of lights even to-day in this modern world, projects the rich and glorious past and teaches us to uphold the true values of life. To read more on this, please click here. In the north of India, the same festival is known as Diwali. In this board, I have simply used a traditional south Indian saree as my inspiration to decorate my house for Deepavali.....Please share some of your ideas or pictures here.
