Happy Navrathri !!!!
I have been keeping Golu since 2002. First Golu included just non-traditional dolls available in local market with silver items, marriage dolls etc in a small place. Next year it was a 3 step golu made of boxes with Dashavatar brought from India. As years passed we added more steps and dolls to the Golu. Every day during Navrathri ends with chanting Lalitha Sahasranama, Thamboolam and kids demonstrating their Carnatic talents.
Current year our grand Golu included 7 steps. On right side we have Chottanikara Bhagavathy with Swami Ayappa theme. Kalahasti Navagraha theme is to the front of Swami Ayappa. Towards the right side of Golu steps are Lord Murugan and Garuda Sevai. Step zero starts with Kerala art form Kathakali followed by Pongal and Mylapore Bajanai set. We have Chettiar theme with handmade dolls followed by Barbie shopping theme with dresses handmade by me. Lego theme, Winter wonderland theme, Animal park made by my 2 kids with skating ring completes my Golu 2020.
Thanks for the opportunity & motivation from sapthavarna creations team for contestants to showcase the Golu online.
Have a nice day!
