But, suppose there is no such event taking place. Will your little champs be deprived of that joy? The answer is: NO! You can make an effigy of Ravana at home. A small one but nonetheless it will give you the same pleasure when your kid giggles their heart out while shooting it.
Does your kid nurture great love for colors and patterns? The true essence of this festival is deeply rooted in lights and colour. Rangoli portrays it so beautifully that kids love to participate.
