    Re: Special Contest - Navarathri Golu Contest!!!

    It is a great opportunity to be a part of Kolu Competition,conducted by Penmai.com.Thanks a lot for the initiative.I have attached photos of our Golu-2013 & themes(kept in three spacious rooms) .

    Doll collection for Golu started 7 months earlier & we have kept the display in 2 floors spread across 3 rooms.We have been following the tradition for the past 33 years & we select a theme from mythology and we depict a story /replica in our Golu.

    Themes in our Golu this year are:

    1) 4 South states 4 Temple Towns(Replica of Kanchipuram,Guruvayoor,Tirumala-Tirupathi,Mysore )-we have depicted this theme with handmade temples,Mysore palace,Tirumala Hills,dolls etc:

    a)Tamil Nadu -Kanchi Kamakshi Amman Golden Car/Chariot Procession / Temple & happenings around the temple -streets/shops etc
    b)Kerala-Guruvayoor Krishna Procession with Temple
    c)Andhra-Tirupathi-Brahmotsavam-Garuda Sevai Procession with depiction of Kapila Theertham & Tirumala Hills
    d)Karnataka-Mysore Dussera-Vijayadasami-Chamundi & Mysore King Procession-with Mysore Palace & Garden/Fountain ( 4 fountains were made for Mysore Garden)Background

    2) Krishna Leela-From Lord Krishna's birth till Geethopadesam -Light & Audio show with stories & songs -the show runs for 15 mins & a room is dedicated for this show at our home

    3) Padi Golu is decorated ,in the form of a ratham/chariot-wheels are handmade & roof of the room is decorated with cloth & thombai

    4) Murugan/Mayil Vahanam Kolam

    5) Mandapam decoration & Kids Corner features -TV programme -Vijayadasami special depiction & kid dolls

    The Kolu setup was a team work, with contribution from my husband,Mother in law & my daughter (5 year old),helped us in arranging the dolls & we have a separate room for Kids dolls/Krishna Leela show & Srushti TV -in her name was set up & she proudly explains the features to all our guests.

    Greetings to all on the occasion of Navaratri 2013. Our Kolu is with 5 steps , each featuring a Nilai of Sriman Narayana. Along with it a scene from Kanchipuram Garudasevai. Kolu is also celebrated with the same fervor in Singapore ads it is done back in India.
    Hope all of you would enjoy viewing the photos. Thanks to Penmai for organizing to collect Kolu photos in one place.
    Thanks,
    Chitra Srikanth,
    Singapore
