    Re: Special Contest - Navarathri Golu Contest!!!

    First of Kolu is a mixed mood of celebration festival. In the morning payasam and poojas. and in the evening real celebrations SUNDAL, silk saris AND lot of visitors. Kolu is kept for both traditional as well as social gathering festival now a days. In some cases those who cannot meet throughout the year, during Kolu time came to our house and had a nice time. Wishing this wonderful festival to continue in our life forever.
    My mother in law and father in law is staying with us and they are keeping kolu for nearly 52 years. wow. I learnt a lot from my mother in law during this festival time.

    I kept kolu in two ways one in a traditional way where we used to do pooja. Second side park, themes,etc which entertain as well as teach social things not only to children but also to the elder people also.

    This year MY KOLU THEME was the

    (1)hazardous caused by CELL PHONE TOWER because of which we are loosing CHITTU KURUVI.
    Many people accepted it and i insisted young children to put FOOD AND KEEP WATER FOR birds in the upstairs daily, which they agreed to do

    (2) SETHU BRIDGE. Which was built by Vanaras and helped Lord Rama to cross the sea 17.50 lacs years ago. (I kept the notice board -NASA agreed that there is a bridge under the sea)

    (3) MODERN CHETTIAR SHOP: where you can get from fridge to furniture, from vegetable to watches, from vegetables to light fittings.
    Even if WALL MART comes to our country, THE CARE OF ANNACHI cannot be compensated by any corporate bodies. Many people liked it.

    (4) BRINDAVAN AND MOUNTAIN. - Green plants nicely came and it seems that Krishna and Radha dancing on it in a real manner
    Glowing mountain on top of it Lord Venkateswara.
    (5) BROOKLYN BRIDGE OF USA.- Many children enjoyed it very much

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.

    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!
    Very nice and cute dolls friend

    Hope I have given you a visual treat to your eyes,eagerly looking forward your valuable comments and lovely feedback.

    Best regards,
    Deepa.
