Hello Everyone,

Wish you all very Happy Navarathri..

Theme of my golu - "Go Green - Have Dream"

Here are the visual treat of my home golu

Go Green

Traditionally we do keep grains like rice, dal varieties etc for chettiyar dolls..but i thought in different way..to keep seeds..that gives idea to make "Go Green" in each and every house. By this way the traditional way is not missed and also "something different".

Have Dream

As everyone guess..yes it is to remember our beloved and ever loved Sir Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam..Rameswaram Pamban bridge..thought to do this handmade..and something engineered using empty oodupathi kuzhal..

Some more pics of my home navarathri golu




Thank You
ram

Always my mom-in-law will create new new things like handmade dolls, furnitures, wire dolls, aarathi plate decoration etc..actually we have four sided golu consisting of Traditional golu(main golu 9 steps), on the other side handmade dolls,on the side side Lord Ganesha(Raja Ganpati), parks with small animals, one side karuda vaagam,and theme golu "Navarathriyil Sivarathri" The story behind the Theme is as follows

A legend explains the all-night worship of Shiva on Shivratri. There was once a poor tribal man who was great devotee of Shiva. One day he went deep into the forest to collect firewood. However he lost his way and could not return home before nightfall. As darkness fell, he heard the growls of wild animals. Terrified, he climbed onto the nearest tree for shelter till day-break. Perched amongst the
A legend explains the all-night worship of Shiva on Shivratri. There was once a poor tribal man who was great devotee of Shiva. One day he went deep into the forest to collect firewood. However he lost his way and could not return home before nightfall. As darkness fell, he heard the growls of wild animals. Terrified, he climbed onto the nearest tree for shelter till day-break. Perched amongst the branches, he was afraid he would doze and fall off the tree. To stay awake, he decided to pluck a leaf at a time from the tree and drop it, while chanting the name of Shiva. At dawn, he realized that he had dropped a thousand leaves onto a Linga to keep himself awake, the tribal plucked one leaf at a time from the tree and dropped it below which he had not seen in the dark. The tree happened to be a wood apple or bel tree. This unwitting all-night worship pleased Shiva, by whose grace the tribal was rewarded with divine bliss. This story is also recited on Mahashivaratri by devotees on fast. After observing the all-night fast, devotees eat the Prasad offered to Shiva.
