    Hello.. Bhaishmi Here
    These are a few photos of our house kolu.
    The Ganapathy idol with the traditional "pattu pavadai" is draped over a big "kuthu velakku" and is not a ready made idol. Seeing Ganesha with long hair and a traditional female costume makes him more beautiful..
    The next photo depicts a pond with a park. complete with grass, grazing cows, farmers, people taking water from a pond, kids and animals.
    The next is a rare unique doll depicting the story of prahaladha and lord Narasimha just before the killing of Heranekashipu.
    The next two pictures give the ventral and lateral view of one side of the kolu.

    Hello again..
    I was not able to post all photos in a single reply.
    The first photo here gives a close up of the park, pond, animals and people.
    The second photo is of the famous "Lisieux school". the uniquenes of it is that Lisieux is a boys school but in the kolu it is an all girls school.
    The fourth photo is of the Famous "Marudhamalai" with Lord Muruga on the hill and devotees and horse dancers and pundits.
    The final photo brings out the main godesses of Navrathri. Saraswathi whose pooja is for the last 3 days, Durga for whom Dussera is celebrated and Lakshmi for all round prosperity.
    we have tried to bring out the grandeur of Navrathri in the most unique and meaningful. Hope you all enjoyed it!!
    Keep up the good work Penmai!

    Re: Special Contest - Navarathri Golu Contest!!! - First Post with 5 photos

    Dear People,

    Greetings! Padma here. Following are the pictures of the golu at my home. I always keep around 9 steps as part of the Golu to mark the Navarathiri. The pictures gives a glimpse of all kinds of statues, dolls, miniatures that have been made in different places in India and also well preserved artworks and old dolls. The dolls are from different places like Thanjavur, Jaipur, Kondapalli, Panruti, Traditional ones like the clay made fruits and vegetables, Marapachii family in a well dressed manner attending the wedding ceremony. I always have lord Vinayaga at the first step along with Lakshmi and Saraswathi. This time for a change I've placed Lakshmi Haigrivar and Annapoorni another form of Parvathi along with Vinayagar at the first and topmost step. The ambal kalasam is another important part of the golu that you can see in the 8th step. I also have a Radha-Krishna statue that I keep it separately along with the golu that is almost real. Also I've constructed a "Wonders of the World" park with the 3D puzzle structures, ice-cream sticks, serial bulbs, lego toys. It's a mix of modern and ancient culture. There are navigators placed at different corners pointing the direction to the wonders. The street lights are an attraction that I've used them as park lights. I've created an ice-cream parlour called the ice-cream corner using ice-cream sticks. My golu hence is a mix of modern and ancient traditional art symbolizing how modern we grow we should always be in touch and remember our tradition. I've shared the first 5 photos with this post. The next 5 photos I'll share with the next thread.

    Dear People,

    Greetings! Padma is back with the next 5 photos of her Golu. This is in continuation to my earlier thread. Navarathri is yet another opportunity to portray once creativity, art skills, hidden talents of every individual who is associated with keeping the Golu. I hope people like my Golu. Happy Navarathiri to everyone. Happy Vijayadasami to everyone.
