    We have a concept park which depicts the 5 landscapes of TAMIL NADU - Kurinji, Mullai, Marudham, Paalai, Neithal. In Sangam Literature, the landscapes of TamilNadu are classified based on geography, climate, wildlife , trees and flower. We have done our best to visualize the landscapes as depicted in our ancient Literature.

    Hope you enjoy our presentation.
    Please let us know your comments on our Golu which will surely help us improve our ideas.







    Nice Friend

Kolu dolls are principally of the Gods and Godesses characterizing conviction and folk tales. As per our tradition, we include few wooden dolls too. We create our Kolu with the theme such as wedding, temple, Geetha Ubadesam, Mahabharatham story, Krishna story, Ramayanam Story, Thangather with Meenakshi,park, pooja, Saints, Pongal celebrations, Forest, Village and city, Chithirai festival, Grocery, Thirukkalyam, all form of Gods and Godesses, Lord Shiva Temple, Kacheri, Jesus Christ, Kamadhenu, Krishna Avatharam, Cricket and Tennis etc., Female guests are given prasad, kumkum and a humble packet of goodies. We worshipped by lighting a lamp in front of it for every evening for those nine days and devotional hymns and slokas are chanted. It symbolizes the triumph of good over evil, of knowledge over ignorance, of light over darkness. It commemorates women power, shakthi or inner strength. We displayed more dolls representing nine swaroopa of name, fame, health, wealth, happiness, humanity, education, bhakthi and Sakthi to empower each family in the world. Whatever situations we are born in, our prime aim is to be merge with God. Navarathri Kolu celebration in our home remains us all this.

    Hello,
    First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a ‘Happy Navarathri’. Our main Kolu is made of 7 steps. This carries dolls such as Lakshmi, Saraswathi, Ganesha, Radhey Krishna, Lakshmi Narashimar, Lakshmi Narayanar, Perumal-Thaayar, Pandurangan-Ragumayee, Ramar Set, Dasavatharam, Ashtalaklakshmi, Azhwars, Karthigai Pengal etc.

    In addition to this we have a dual themed kolu this year- (i) 'Nectar of Thiruppavai' & (ii) Family Occasions.

    (i). 'Nectar Of Thiruppavai' - The Tiruppavai is a collection of thirty stanzas (paasuram) in Tamil written by Andal, in praise of the Lord Perumal (Vishnu). I have selected only the important Paasurams. Here comes a brief description of them.

    1. Periyazhwar finding Andal Near a Tulsi plant
    2. Paasuram 1 – Grown up Andal waking up the girls to join her to obtain 'Pavai Nombu',
    3. Paasuram 2 – 'Vaiyathu Vaazhveergaal' depicts Lord Vishnu sleeping in 'Parkadal' with Goddess Lakshmi.
    4. Paasuram 3 – ‘Ongi Ulagalandha ‘ depicts the praise of 'Ulagalandha Perumal' (Thiruvikraman).
    5. Paasuram 4 – ‘Aazhi Mazhai Kanna’– Aandaal asking Lord Krishna for heavy rain.
    6. Paasuram 5 – ‘Maayanai Mannu Vada maindhanai’ depicts the scene in which Lord Krishna was tied to the “Ural”.
    7. Paasuram 6 – ‘Pullum Silambinakaan’ depicts Lord Vishnu in Garuda Vahanam and man blowing conch.
    8. Paasuram 16 – ‘Naayaganaai nindra Nandha Gopanudaiya’ - Girls requesting the door keeper to let them in.
    9. Paasuram 19 – ‘Kuthu Vilakkeriya’ depicts Lord Krishna sleeping on the bosom of Nappinnai.
    10. Paasuram 24 – ‘Andru ivvulagam Alandhaai’ depicts Krishna carrying Govardhana giri.
    11. Paasuram 25 – ‘Oruthi Maganaai Pirandhu’ depicts Krishna’s birth at one place(As Devaki’s son) and transported to another and brought up as Yashodha’s son.
    12. Paasuram 26 – ‘Koodaarai vellum seer Govindha’ – Gopikas serving sweet pongal to Lord Krishna.
    13. Paasuram 30 – ‘Vanga kadal Kadaindha’ – Gopikas dancing with Lord Krishna after winning the parai.
    14. Aandaal joining Rangamannar

    Some of these dolls were handmade by me. Paintings which depicts Paasuram 1 'Margazhi Thingal', Paasuram 4 'Aazhi Mazhai Kanna', and Paasuram 16 'Naayaganaai Nindra' were all painted by me..


    (ii) 'Family Occasions' - This theme is a continuation of last year's with few changes and additions, due to heavy demand from last year’s visitors. 'Family Occasions' starts with a child's 'Naming Ceremony', followed by the 'Ayush Homam/Ear Piercing'', 'Upanayanam', 'Engagement', 'Wedding', 'Seemantham', 'Shastiapthapoorthi' and ends with 'Sathabhishekam''(This year's new addition). As some of these sets were not sold, I had to create them on my own. The cradle & the baby, Brahmobadesam in Upanayanam are few examples of my creation. These dolls were handmade by me.

    I would also like to point out that the dressed up Aandaal statue is made up of one piece. It took more than 2 hrs for me to drape (pretend) the Saree for her.

    I would also like to thank my mom for helping me with the Kolu.

    Thanks for checking out..

    Srividya









    Fantastic.Really Nice...

    Navarathri Kolu 2014 at my house

    Theme of Golu.
    “Golu” is also known as “Kolu” is a unique display of various dolls and figurines in odd numbered steps (Padis). It is celebrated in this manner in the four Southern states of India. The dolls are mostly of the gods and godesses from Hindu Mythology arranged on steps.
    Shiva and Parvati idols made of Rakta Chandan wood, occupy the center stage, which is passed on from generation to generation. The Theme of Decoration this year is the 9 colours of Navratri with Nine forms of Durga (Nav Durga) in each Panel. The Decoration is Eco-friendly made of Ply wood and Paper.
    The South Indian oil Lamp with the face of Devi is placed at the center over the Rangoli and dressed according to the colour code of the day.

    Clay Models of Vegetables / Fruits made by local village, Panruti Potter (Panruti is a town, municipality and taluk headquarters of Cuddalore District of Tamilnadu). This was purchased by my Late Grand Father, (Shri. Peruvamba Shivaraman Iyer) about 100 years ago, when he was working as Chief Station Master at Panruti station in Southern Railway. This has been handed over to me by my uncle Shri. P.S. Murthy in 2008 as an ancestral gift article.
    These items are not repainted or touched up. These are kept as it is since it was made. It is prestigeous and proud possesion for us.
