Dear Esteemed Judges,

Golu at "Parvath Vihar" , our residence is a 5 step one. The steps are manually built with the help of house hold items rather than the ready made steel steps. Ours is unique and special for the following reasons:

  1. Despite having a 2 3/4 yrs toddler, We've spent lots of hours during his sleep time and late evenings without any external help
  2. 5 themes are key this time
    1. Chennai floods 2015 - depicting the flood situation at flats, individual houses, chennai airport with relief materials through helicopter
    2. Save our environment theme - depicting the importance of food waste and non-biodegradable waste
    3. Puratasi thiruvizha theme- depicting the thiruvizha mood with poi kal kudhiri dances, thanjavur thalaiyatti bommai, karakattam, jallikattu and other entertainment
    4. Organic market theme - depicting the importance of greenery vegetables
    5. Lord Krishna biography theme - various forms of Lord Krishna right from childhood to Geethai upadesam.
  3. Lighting arrangements and hanging decorations add more spirit to the fervour
  4. Last but not the least, daily sundals and gift items for both elders and kids are served with pomp and pleasure and pleasure


Regards
Mahesh, Savitha & Keshav Ajay
