    This year the theme of our Kolu is Anbe Sivam . We have displayed hand painted pictures of 63 nayanmargal with 3D effect depicting the story associated with each. We also made Jyothir lingam and two of Shiva’s famous temples – Chidambaram and Thiruvannamalai. We have acquired a unique doll of Shiva dancing in between the horns of Nandi depicting Pradosha kala dance with all gods around. We also kept story scenes from Periyapuranam, Thiruvilayadal puranam, Mahabaratham related to Shiva.

    Re: Special Contest - Navarathri Golu Contest!!!

    Happy Navaratri!


    Please find attached photographs of our 2012 Golu.


    This year we have two unique themes:


    Our Traditional 5 Padi Kolu is based on the Gayatri Mantram’s first phrase: “Om Bhur Bhuvah Suvaha”, wherein the dolls on each padi indicate the meaning of these words: Om: The primeval sound, Bhur: the physical world, Bhuvah: the mental world and Suvah: the celestial, spiritual world.


    Our Contemporary Golu was inspired by the recently held Internatinal coastal cleanup day held at Marina Beach on 15th Sept. 2012. The Golu features a handmade (from scratch) cardboard & Plaster of Paris Lighthouse replete with a revolving light, bajji, ice cream and sholam vendors on the beach and all the statues from the Kamarajar to the Bhartiar selai that line up the Marina beach, additionally there is a float depicting “Marine Life on Tour” reminding people that-MY MARINA is MY RESPONSIBILITY.


    Happy Navaratri!
