dely | 2950 comments Well, see if you like this idea.
I begin showing you my christmas tree of last year (the one of 2010 are still in the camera).
Under the tree there is also my lovely lovely cat, she always destroyes our tree stealing some decoration and playing with it in the whole house.




From Goodreads: Width must be 0-400, Height must be 0-1000, alt is a description of the image. All three are optional, but recommended.

Notice: But one word of caution regarding uploading photos of families on vacation. Remember this is a public group and that means anyone on goodreads can join this group and will be able to access ur photos. Please keep this in mind, the photos are public to anyone on Goodreads, and the Indian Readers group or its moderators will in no way be responsible for any misuse of those photos. This also goes for revealing/sharing of personal data and subsequent misuse of that. So beware members before u think of sharing something here. That said, we have no power to stop u from sharing anything that u want to, we can only put up disclaimers like these! (Aditya)

I guess 5-6 hours but I guess I can make it in less time too.I can make it in more time as well.I depends on the difficulty level of the rangoli..
@Smitha thanks

Very nice! With which materials have you done it? Flowers and food like for puja? You make rangoli for every feast or only for Diwali?

I put pictures in an other way: I go on "some html is ok" and follow what is written there. I use the website tinypic for hosting images.

The one we made was a very small one, the basic drawing with the chalk or the flour doesn't take more than 15-20 mins. The major part is in putting the colors and other decorations. If you are really organized and have all the colors at your disposal and make a decision as to put which color in which place and all that, you will be done in an hour and a half max :-) Make sure u hav sufficient quantities of each color before hand!


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

lol! spoken like a pro!!


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

@ dely: whenever u make them next can u put up photos of ur home made italian pizzas!


message 26: by dely (new)

dely | 2950 comments Sure!


message 27: by Akanksha (new)

Akanksha  Singh (Akankshasingh92) | 1395 comments
Okay, i'm not a pro but this is what i tried making on bhai duj(the only occasion when mom forces me to make it myself) and its nt rangoli, its a 'chauk'! Its made with flour and its supposed to be for 'shagun' or gud luck during pujas!


message 28: by Akanksha (new)

Akanksha  Singh (Akankshasingh92) | 1395 comments
The cake last nite! Unfortunately, it had a tragic fate, ended up on people's faces instead of being eaten! Had to order another one!!


message 29: by Meenakshi (new)

Meenakshi (Mcoolshi) | 1542 comments @Dely material depends entirely on you.You will be surprised to know that we have no experience of rangoli making (although we have been making them for the past 6 years or so) and we have not used any proffesional rangoli equipments.WE have used the leftover colours of holi, some leftover flowers,already used diyas (which cannot be used in puja again).We have not used chalks at all.I decorated the diyas myself.
The most difficult part is to fill colours abstractly and to fill it in such a way that the shape of the design is not disturbed.
India is a diverse country.Difderent people make different rangolis for different occasions.I make it only on diwali.

@Akansha yummy cake..oh what a waste!!

Akanksha  Singh (Akankshasingh92) | 1395 comments Yeah i know, black forest....my favourite!!

message 33: by Meenakshi (new)

Meenakshi (Mcoolshi) | 1542 comments strawberry as in strawberry cake or strawberry on the cake?


message 34: by Akanksha (new)

Akanksha  Singh (Akankshasingh92) | 1395 comments Flavour!


message 35: by dely (new)

dely | 2950 comments You are artists! We make never things like rangoli or chauk (the one of Aka) for no feast.


message 36: by Meenakshi (new)

Meenakshi (Mcoolshi) | 1542 comments @Akannsha me too..yuck!

Piazza San Marco but they were works at the basilica and so it is covered by a scaffolding:

Dely, now I am interested so much in Italy, that I am on the lookout for Italy based fiction. Sadly I feel the only way I can be in Italy is via 'Armchair travel'through books.

@Smitha try reading non-Don fiction in Italy if u can find any :-)

@Dely thanks for the amazing pics, splendid!

:D
It is so hard to find books about Italy in english that doesn't speak about some Don?

@ Smitha: If it comes to my mind I will advise you some books who talk about Italy.

Dely that is so beautiful! how old are these pics?

Guys can v also have a "Indian Readers vacation to Venice"?? !!
:)


message 42: by Akanksha (new)

Akanksha  Singh (Akankshasingh92) | 1395 comments @Hazel lol.....i wouldn't mind:-) but i guess we'll have to keep Aditya is chains otherwise he'll make us bankrupt by gorging on pizzas!!

@Aditya, @dely, thanks for your suggestions. As you correctly said, most fiction relates Italy to Godfather and Mafia.
@Hazel, book a ticket for me too

If I don't ho wrong they are from 1990. They are very old.

We can exchange our houses for holiday! You come in Italy and I come to India.

@Anbu, fabulous pictures! Are you passionate of photography? Is it your hobby or your work? Because they are really fantastic.
