The festival of Ugadi, also known as the New Year celebrated in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, will be observed on April 13 this year. It is celebrated on the first day of Chaitra month, as per the Hindu calendar. It typically falls in the month of April of the Gregorian calendar.

On this auspicious occasion, people make rangolis at their homes. The colourful patterns are meant to welcome gods and spread positivity in the surroundings. Traditionally, rangolis are made on the floor with coloured rice and flower petals, however, people nowadays use ready-made colours for vibrancy.

Here are some rangoli designs to brighten up your home:

 1. Kolam

Kolam is one of the easiest yet prettiest rangoli designs. Kolam is generally made with rice flour, chalk, chalk powder, or rock powder and is quite popular in South Indian states. 

2. Flower Rangoli

Flowers are the best way to decorate your home. Making beautiful designs on the floor with flower petals is always creative and different.

3. Rangoli with ready-made colours

The good old way to make rangolis is to use the vibrant colours that are available in the market. Pick whatever design you want to make and you will end with perfect decoration.
