    Entry for Kolu Contest 2016

    My humble namaskaras to one and all.
    Myself Savita Santosh. I wish to participate in the kolu contest 2016.

    We have been keeping kolu for the past 13 years and every year we try to come up with some innovative themes.
    Our traditional kolu consists of five steps. The highlight is the Navaratri Nayaki set on the third step that depicts the form taken by Goddess on each day. Apart from the traditional kolu we have set multiple themes on both sides.

    On the left side we have set up
    1) Ganeshapuram - A land inhabited by only Ganeshas doing various jobs and playing various games. The temple model is homemade.
    2) Tour around the world in a flying car by Alex- a combination of 3D puzzles, homemade pyramid and souveneirs.
    3) Soft toys gallery - all home made

    On the right side we have set up
    1) Shiva Vishnu Temple - It has Pillaiyar sannidhi, Perumal - Thayar sannidhi, Shiva sannidhi and Nagar sannidhi. The temple model is homemade.
    2 ) Chettiar & co shop selling various items.
    3) Grandma telling stories to a child. The stories depicted are The Thirsty crow, Strength of Unity(homemade model) and Brahmin and the three thieves(homemade model)

    We hope you enjoy the tour of our kolu.
