    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2015!

    Dear Friends,

    This is Revathi Srinivas, a Banker by profession and an Artist by passion.



    For the past 25 years, Navaratri has always been a special occasion for me to display my artistic abilities through culturally/ politically/ religiously inclined themes. A brief note about the Kolu:

    Theme of my Kolu is "CLEANLINESS IS GODLINESS". A symbolic representation of the current scenario in india and also a future that we all should aim for, in terms of Cleanliness. The Kolu theme has been mainly portrayed through 3 parts:


    A) OUR CURRENT WAY OF LIFE:

    It portrays the Lack of Cleanliness outside our own homes.

    1. People throw trash turning the tourist spots into garbage dumps, failing to attract tourists to our famous historical tourist destinations.

    2. The river banks converted into slum dwellings and are used as a bath area, toilet, wash area, and also used as domestic water ending up into adulterated and unhygienic water for livelihood.

    3. Waste Fruits and Vegetables are thrown everywhere in the Vegetable and Fruit markets and people happily walk on the Garbage to buy vegetable and fruits

    4. Garbage bins are overflowing and all corners are treated as open toilets.

    5. Every compound wall is filled with posters and paintings of political leaders, making it look very ugly and untidy and leading into accidents.

    6. The toilets in the public places are in unclean condition making people to use the walls for urinating and most of the places toilets are not available.

    7. Unorganised way of constructing houses and dumping garbage everywhere leads to unhealthy environment.

    8. Unplanned and repeated digging is going on in every road making it difficult for the vehicular traffic creating confusion and traffic jam and unnecessary wastage of natural resources like petrol and diesel.

    9. People drinking liquor in the TASMAC shops which have mushroomed all over the city throw bottles on the road and create a fear psychosis among the general public and children.


    B) SWATCH BHARAT ABIYAN

    1. Thanks to our P.M. Narendra Modiji for introducing the Swatch Bharat Abiyan and bringing awareness to the common people about cleanliness and to make our public places waste free, clean and tidy. Massive steps have been taken in this regards.

    2. Most of the schools and NGOs have taken up the task of creating awareness about cleanliness and this is definitely a positive step towards achieving our goal of Clean India.



    C) A PEAK INTO THE FUTURE:

    This part shows that through combined efforts and dedication it is possible for our country to become CLEAN INDIA soon. A peek into into the successful future:

    1. Tourist spots are kept clean and foreigners are coming and staying in our hill resorts.

    2. Water body is kept clean and used for entertainments like boating and swimming.

    3. Animals are happily living in a healthy environment.

    4. Awareness for cleaner environment is created among Literate and illiterate people.

    5. Dustbins and Free toilets everywhere paves way for a cleaner environment along with proper maintenance.

    6. Every house plot has a minimum of 50% green area as a lawn or a garden.

    7. For city expansion vertical housing and vertical car parking helps to leave more open area for greenery.

    8. Garbage is not wasted and used for generating useful gases. “Waste is not a waste until it is wasted” is realised.

    9. Lesser usage of natural resources by using more and more of clean energy like bio-gas, solar power and wind mills, making our city and country pollution free.

    Keeping the city clean and tidy, thereby avoiding health hazards leading into a clean pollution free environment for a healthy living, thereby increasing the quality of life and longevity of the people.

    CONCLUSION:

    People have been asking god for a solution to change our cities like a swargam and god has finally rewarded. It is now very clear that, the only way to godliness is through cleanliness. Sooner our cities will become like a Swargam and our dreams would become a reality.

    I have enclosed few pictures of my golu for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Smile Navarathri Golu Contest

    Dear Penmai members,
    As a part of the Navarathri celebrations, we, everyone from our house get ready to arrange Golu dolls in our house on Mahalaya Amavasai which is an auspicious day. We kept in odd number of steps (padi) [7] for nine nights. We set up the Golu with a lot of involvement and exhibit our handicrafts and toys (made of clay and wood) arranged aesthetically. This is a modest way for us to use our imagination and display our skill and vision of various themes. More Women & Children are visiting our home during this time and Thamboolam is given to sumangalis as its considered very auspicious particularly during this period. We light lamp (Villakku) in front of the Golu in the morning and evening and different types of sundals and sweets are prepared for and distributed as prasadams to guests and visitors. The guests are insisted on showing their talent during this time through various means including singing or playing (instruments) carnatic music in front of the Golu among other things. We are keeping golu for the past 30 years. This year apart from the traditional 7 step Golu, we kept a theme golu called various festivals of India and also a day in a village and city. All the family members take active part in arrangements. The Bommai golus are proud possessions of a family and they are handed down through generations.
    Stories from Hindu Mythology continue to be the favorite theme during Navarathri Golu. We prefer to be creative and opt for something unique.
    Depending upon your theme, you will also need backgrounds and other props like forest, trees, ashrams, animals etc.
    Apart from the mythological subjects, we opt for festival themes, karagatam, various dance performances, concert, market, village life etc.
    We also use modern toys to create themes like Cricket, Tennis, Zoo, town, park etc., We use properties like forest, trees, ponds, paddy field etc at home.
    We explained to children about the importance of man in living in harmony with nature and their fellow living beings viz., (animals, plants, birds, etc), going green, importance of wildlife, etc.

    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2015!

    இங்கே போஸ்ட் செய்திருக்கும் எல்லாருக்கும் என் வாழ்த்துக்கள். இங்கே போட்டியிடுபவர்கள் நிறையவே மெனக்கெட்டு கொலு வைத்துள்ளார்கள்.



    இது எங்கள் வீட்டு கொலு. Traditional ஆக வைக்கப்பட்ட கொலு எங்களுடையது. ரொம்ப நாளாக இதே போல் வைத்து வருகிறோம். அதில் சில ஆன்மீக தகவல்களை இங்கே சொல்கிறேன்.

    பகவான் மஹா விஷ்ணுவை ஐந்து நிலைகளில் சொல்வார்கள். பரத்வாதி பஞ்சகம் என்ற ஸ்தோத்ர நூல் அதை விவரமாக விளக்குகிறது.






    முதலில் இந்த லோகங்களுக்கெல்லாம் அப்பாற்பட்ட பரம பதம் எனப்படும் ஸ்ரீ வைகுண்டத்தில் எழுந்தருளியிருக்கும் பரம பத நாதன், ஆழ்வார்களாக அவதரித்த நித்யசூரிகளுடன் காணப்படுவது மேல் படியில் காட்டப்பட்டுள்ளது.

    நம் போன்ற மனிதர்களால் செல்ல முடியாத இந்த நிலை அண்டத்தை சூழ்ந்துள்ள நீரை ஒத்தது.

    அடுத்து இந்த நிலவுலகுக்கெல்லாம் அப்பாற்பட்ட பாற்கடலில் மஹா விஷ்ணுவாக பாம்பணையில் பள்ளி கொண்ட வ்யூஹ நிலை இரண்டாம் படியில் விளக்கப் படுகிறது. மகாவிஷ்ணுவே வ்யூஹ வாசுதேவன், சங்கர்ஷணன், பிரத்யும்னன், அநிருத்தன் என்று நால்வராக காட்சி அளிப்பதும் ஒவ்வொரு யுகத்துக்கும் ஒவ்வொரு நிறத்தில் காட்சியளிப்பதையும் விளக்க வெள்ளை, சிவப்பு, கரும்பச்சை, கருப்பு அல்லது கருநீலமாக நால்வர் இந்தப் படியில் உள்ளார்கள். தேவர்கள், ரிஷிகளால் மட்டுமே காண முடியும் இந்த நிலை பெருக்காற்று நீரை ஒத்தது.

    அவர்களே வேறு வேறு யுகங்களில் வைபவத்துடன் விபவாவதாரமாக அவதரிக்கிறார்கள். அதில் முக்கிய பத்து அவதாரங்கள் தசாவதாரங்களாக மூன்றாம் படியில் காட்டப்பட்டுள்ளது. இது அந்த கால கட்டத்தில் வாழ்ந்த மனிதர்களால் மட்டுமே சேவிக்கப்பட்டதால் இது மழை நீரை ஒத்தது.

    நம் போன்றவர்களின் கண்களுக்கு இலக்காக வேண்டும் என்பதற்காகவே எப்போதும் நம்முடனே எழுந்தருளியிருக்க வேண்டும் என்பதற்காகவே கோவில்களில் அர்ச்சைகளாக காட்சி தரும் நிலை திருவல்லிக்கேணி பார்த்தசாரதிப் பெருமாளால் நான்காம் படியில் விளக்கப் பட்டுள்ளது. இது ஏரி குளம் கிணறுகளில் நமக்காகவே எப்போதும் இருக்கும் நீரை ஒத்த நிலையாகும்.

    ஐந்தாவதாக நம் எல்லோருடைய மனத்திலும் அந்தர்யாமியாக/ மனசாட்சியாக எழுந்தருளியிருக்கும் நிலை அதே நான்காம் படியில் பெருமாளை வணங்கிக்கொண்டிருக்கும் பக்தர்களால் காட்டப்பட்டுள்ளது. இந்த நிலை பூமிக்கு அடியில் உள்ள நீர் போல நமக்கு காண முடியாதது. இந்த தத்துவத்தை விளக்கும்படி உள்ளது முதல் நான்கு படிகள்.

    ஐந்தாம் படியில் கிருஷ்ணலீலைகளும்,

    ஆறாவது படியில் ஆண்டாள் அவதாரக்கதையும்

    கடைசி ஏழாவது படியில் செட்டியார் கடையுடன் திருமண வைபவமும் உள்ளது.





    இடது கோடியில் காஞ்சீபுரம் கருட சேவையுடன்
    நடுவில் ஒரு கிராமப்புற காட்சியும் தொழிலாளர்களும் உள்ளனர்.

    பின்புறத்தில் பல வேறு நாட்டினர்கள் உள்ளனர்.

    இதை ஆங்கிலத்திலும் கீழே தந்துள்ளேன்.

    Parathvadhi Panchakam describes Bhagavan Vishnu in five unique forms. Paramapadha Nathan, alias Maha Vishnu, in Paramapadham (the Ultimate Abode), is surrounded by Azwars (incarnation of NIthyasuris) as seen on first step on Top. Paramapadham which is unattainable for mere mortals like us can be compared to the Avarana Water surrounding the Universe.

    The second step depicts the Vyuha form. Somewhere beyond this Universe, Paramapadhanathan can be seen in the Milky Ocean as Maha Vishnu. In this form, Maha Vishnu manifests as Vyuha Vasudeva, Sangarshana, Pradhyumna and Anirudda . These four manifestations adopt four different colors (white, red, green and black respectively) in the four yugas. Since Maha Vishnu in Milky Ocean can only be seen by Devas and Rishis, we can compare this form to Flashfloods.

    Maha Vishnu, incarnates as Dasavataras in different Yugas as can be seen in the Third step. This is similar to rain water as only those who are present at the time can enjoy it.

    To grace mortals like us, He takes the form of Temple Deities (Archavatara). The Parthasarathy Temple Replica Set in the fourth step serves to highlight Maha Vishnu in this form. Since Maha Vishnu is readily accessible to us, this form can be thought of as waterbodies like Lakes, Ponds and Wells.

    The same step hosts the depiction of Maha Vishnu in the final form – Antaryami. It is believed that He resides within every living thing as its Conscience which is shown through the devotees at the temple. This stage can be compared to the hidden water table. This Philosophy is well explained in the first four steps.

    Sri Krishna Leela and Andal Avatara stories are depicted in the fifth and the sixth steps. The last step shows the Marriage function along with the renowned Chettiar shop.

    The left corner is the famous Kanjeepuram Garuda Sevai. In the center portion is a village scene with various artisans at work. People of various countries and nationalities can be seen in the shelves at the back.
