    We are embracing the Navarathri Golu tradition since 2009. We have been adding more dolls along with some theme every year. This year we set up Golu with 9 steps along with Kumbakarnan and Maya bazar doll set.
    Our Golu is unique with a set up of LORD SIVAN MALAI – we made with Paper mache, Plaster of paris and was painted. We created a small water fall and a town on the foot hills.
    We have added more details on the foothills.
    a Bhajan group in the foothills
    a cable car running between the mountains
    a bridge from mountain to the city with vehicles
    a school with a playground
    a temple with a well
    several people walking around the town
    an airport
    a fenced cricket ground with players
    small houses
    a tower with lights.

    Happy Navarathri!
    Thankyou.

    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2016!

    Dear Members,

    Namaskarams !!!

    Welcoming
    We welcome you to our Navarathiri Kolu that enhances the beauty of our residence. This years Kolu is based on our own experiences and feelings which we have undergone in the last one and a half years.
    The theme we have chosen for this year is “KUZHANDAIYUM DEIVAMUM”.


    Description of the theme
    As we were blessed with a grandson and also as my brother’s wife delivered a baby girl, which elated us further, our theme for this year is “KUZHANDAIYUM DEIVAMUM”.


    • Nadu koodhathil thottil

    We have hung a cradle in the centre of the hall.




    • Love is the starting point

    The first Kolu which you see depicts that “Love is Universal"
    In between the roses and greenery a boy meeting girl scenario is set. They become “Love Birds” and get “Engaged” which is represented as” wearing the ring”.




    • After engagement, its marriage !

    Marriage (Manushya kalyanam-
    To begin with we have shown a Tamil Manushya kalyanam (As observed in day to day life) and Dheiva kalyanam (Celestial marriage of the gods)



    Marriage (Dheiveegha kalyanam)
    Dheiveega kalyanam has its representation in Meenakshi kalyanam, Radha kalyanam and the Thirupathi Venkatachalapathy kalyanam. Valli kalyanam is also very famous. Seeru varisai for these marriages are also depicated in the kolu.


    • After marriage, its Seemandham !


    Manushya seemandham

    Soon after marriage, the obvious question is “vishesham unda”
    Hence, Seemandam and vallakappu set is represented with a seeru varisai .
    Dheiveegha seemandham
    Deiveega seemandam and vallakappu is celebrated on”Aadi pooram”. Ambal is adorned with bangles and all the beautiful things that goes with a pregnant woman.
    Women undergo a lot of changes during pregnancy .To experience the same, Ambal too, after having conceived came to a place called “Putlur”where in sheer exhaustion, she took rest and people over there, took care of her .Even today, she lies in a pregnant woman form and accepts all the food ,vegetables and fruits offered to her. She helps one and all who come to seek her blessings.

    After Seemandham, it is delivery (Applicable for creatures also !!!)
    Every creature (not only humans) which re-produces, undergoes labour pain that, it alone knows. A woman can understand another women’s pain, though they may not be able to measure it.
    We depict the story of a frog undergoing delivery pain. Since the ambience was hot, the frog got exhausted owing to her labour.
    A huge serpent, which on any other day would be the frog’s sworn enemy, gives the frog, shelter by exploding its hood. The frog deliver’s comfortably, under the snakes shelter.
    Shri Adi Shankarar, who saw this miracle, decided to have his first mutt in the place where all this happened.
    Thus, Sringeri was established by him.


    • After delivery, mothers milk & cows milk are important


    After the birth of a baby its natural food is mothers feed. If the biological mother lacks it, any other woman could feed the infant. This had been in practice since time unknown (Dhwapara yuga).
    ”Boothanai” took this crooked way to kill most of the children at Gokulam .She applied poison on her breast and fed babies. Many infants lost their lives .Baby Krishna outwitted her by sucking out her life .Since she held the baby close to her and fed the lord, like a mother, the lord gives boothanai a place in heaven .

    Cow’s milk is an alternate supplement for the baby. Hence, the holy cow is also depicted.

    A universal mother

    Though we mostly address the almighty as “He” the mercy, kindness , sympathy ,love, generosity which He showers on us –that “feeling” we have manifested, is in the form of “Amma” or “Mother”.

    In the above depict, ambal holds her two children, a boy and a girl on her lap. Once she occupies the centre stage, all gods become kids waiting to be pampered by her. We have shown deities like Vishnu, Brahma, Shiva, Karthikeyan, Sastha, Bala,Vinayaka in their respective cradles. They are identified by their faces and their bodies are made of eco-friendly materials. For instance,
    • Shiva - Vilvam
    • Vishnu-Tulsi
    • Brahma-White flowers
    • Sasta- Camphor
    • Krishna-Aval (puffed rice)
    • Kartik-Thinnai rice

    Vinayak- Arugum pul & Rice


    • THE TRADITIONAL GOLU PADI

    The Traditional Kolu padigal conveys the saying “Matha, Pitha, Guru, Dheivam”
    This has to be imparted to all children.
    1st Padi- Matha & Pitha mean the world to us. If they are in harmony with each other, then the children become good citizens.

    2nd Padi- Demonstrates guru tatvam. While the deivam in guru form appear as lord Saraswathy, Lord Hayagriva and Lord Dakshina moorthy who are gods responsible for education.

    3rd Padi-It has all the Alwars and Nayanmars ,Adi sankarar and Ramanujar who were all men given guru stature during their times and are still highly respected.

    4th Step- Gurus (depicted in 3rd step) guide us in our spiritual progress. We are asked to visit temples and adhere to the path of Dharma (Sanathana Dharma) for our spiritual up-liftment.

    5th step- The final and last step is our “Love for the Nation”. We see Subash Chandra Bose saluting Mother India .We have to tell stories of Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda and all the rishis, who made our country proud. While Shri Subash Chandra Bose salutes ”Mother India”, we in the same manner and spirit, salute the ”Women of India”.
    Hence, the 5th step is dedicated to them.


    • A PARK


    Finally, we have a park which denotes greenery.
    There is also a village depicted, where people still spend valuable time with their children playing games, much against the families in cities who spend time before the television and computers.

    Moral of our kolu :

    Parents & Children are god’s gift. Practicing good ethical system in the house and fostering good understanding between the two generations shall keep the family life peaceful.
