    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2015!

    Hi I kept a golu that covered approximately 300 sq.ft. Mainly we tried to design the padis in a unique manner - 5 steps in the center and 3 steps on each side. We also hand crafted a maha meru (3d of sri chakra) in thermocole and it was actual mathematical model/shape of the sri chakra. I also built a 3D structure of the famous trichy malaikottai, and kept it along with srirangam ranganthar. the malaikotai had uchi pillayar, thaayumanavar swami and also the ambal sannadhi's gopuram. The chettiyar was setup with his own small golu padi of 5 steps. The manu needhi chozhan story is another bommai set inherited from my mother and is very very rare to be seen. The other aspects of the golu was the flag hoisting school theme, cricket game theme, christmas village theme & zoo along with a parking lot designed like many parking lots in the USA. My husband also helped in setting up lighting for these different themes and around the entire room thereby making this navarathri very very festive. You can also notice the kolams that were drawn/hand painted on wooden boards. Lots of crosha work in display that my grandmother gave me and also the valuable navagraha kolam hand embroidered around the maha meru display. I hope you all enjoy the golu pics. Please consider me for this competition, and I was also encouraged by my friends that this is Milwaukee's biggest golu. Since you are only allowing to post 5 photos, I have provided the link to rest of the photos through the URL - https://photos.google.com/album/AF1Q...yFu6NeX1-watuP

    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2015!

    Namaskaram to all
    I am from calicut in Kerala state. I am participating in this contest for the first time. we are celebrating golu in our house for the past 20 years. In Kerala golu is celebrated only in the houses of tamil brahmin community. Hence our friends and neighbours from other caste and religion are much eager to watch our golu. During navarathri festival our house will be crowded with our friends and neighbours who inturn bring their friends or other family members to see the golu. Except the kolu bommas and other plastic items all other items kept are hand made by mother and other relatives. The Taj Mahal was hand made by my mother using small beads. The model of the temple was made using glass bottles. This year we have displayed hand made model Palakkad Kalpathy theru( famous car festival at palakkad), a hand made models of the oldest bridge of our city, malai kovil etc. There is also a park, a small zoo and kalyana set. We have also shown the birth of jesus and draupdi vastrashepam.


    Hope u all enjoy our kolu. My heartfelt thanks to penmai organizers for providing me such a great opportunity.

    நவராத்திரி வைபவம் என்பது பகவானின் அருளினை அடைய ஒரு வழியாகும். ஊர்வன, பறப்பன முதல் ஜங்கம ஸ்தாவர ஜீவராசிகள் வரையான ஒரு அண்டத்தை உள்ளடக்கிய ப்ரம்மம் பகவான். அவன் 4 யுகங்களுக்கும் காரணபூதனாய் தன் அவதாரங்கள் மூலம் தன் கருந்துக்களை வெளிப்படுத்தியுள்ளான்.
    எங்கள் கொலுவில் பல்வேறு அவதார ரூபங்கள், அவதார புருஷர்கள், மனிதர்கள், விலங்குகள், பறவைகள், தாவரங்கள் மற்றும் நிலம், நீர் உள்ளடக்கிய அண்டத்தை பிரதிபலிக்கும் பழமை மாறாத புராதானமான பல பொம்மைகள் இடம் பெற்றுள்ளன.
    கைவேலைப்பாடு செய்த மயிலும், மணமக்களும் இவ்வருட ஸ்பெஷல்.
    காளிங்க நர்த்தனம், உறியடி, கோபிகா நர்த்தனம், ஊஞ்சல் கிருஷ்ணர், குழலூதும் கண்ணன், மாடு மேய்க்கும் கண்ணன் என்று "கண்ணனே" எங்கள் கொலுவின் இவ்வருட கதாநாயகன்
