Subject:  Rangoli is art
Rangoli is truly an art form. While a simple rangoli can be made by anyone, it takes genuine talent to create the elaborate designs that we see all over. Yet, how many of us actually appreciate the true beauty of these designs. We pass by them with just a cursory glance not bothering to appreciate the time and effort that went in to making such a beautiful design.

In my village, the rangolis are big and colourful. Here in the city, everything is so small. Sometimes, I hate urbanisation.

I know what you mean. I think this is largely because people in the city are too busy with their work and have no time to enjoy festivals. Also, don´ t forget that houses in the city are much smaller than traditional village homes.

Diwali is a time for celebration. The rangoli represents the tradition and culture that we belong to. In a sense, it makes us who we are. I feel you could have written more about the types of patterns available and given examples.
