Last week it was Deepawali, or the Festival of Lights. Deepawali is celebrated because Rama, one of the Indian gods, was going to the forest with his brothers and his wife. After they came back all the villagers were so happy to see them so they had a festival of lights.
We learnt how to make Rangoli from our teacher aid Ms.Radhika. We made the Rangoli by sprinkling colored powder on the outlined paper. Ms. Radhika put glue on the paper. They look beautiful and really colourful. The Rangoli took 2 days to dry. It was hard to make because the powder was hard to stick on the glue.
We also got some Indian sweets from Ms. Radika, after we finished making the Rangoli. During Deepawali Indians eat a lot of sweets so they can think good thoughts and have a prosperous life. The sweets are made with lots of ghee which is a fatty Indian butter. They are very yummy though!!!
