GOLU AROUND THE GLOBE
Take a peek at Geetha Sekhar's golu from India (+91)
Tell us about your Golu
This year our theme is Lord Shrinathji. The Shrinathji temple is situated in the town of Nathdwara in Rajasthan, depicting Bal Gopal, Lord Krishna as a seven year old child. It symbolizes that form of Krishna, when he lifted the Govardhan hill, highlighting his left hand raised and the right hand made into a fist resting at the waist. Shrinathji's seva is performed in 8 parts of the day, it begins with Mangala and ends at Shayan, here the devotees undertake sacred darshan of the deity.
In our theme, this Navratri we have not only tried to re-create the bal roop of Lord Krishna, depicting various events of his life, but also have presented Lord Srinathji idol in the backdrop and also highlighted the eight prahars (periods) of seva.
The entire theme has been handmade, using eco friendly material like cardboard, cloth, bead work etc., the dolls are hand painted meticulously keeping the essence of theme in mind.
Hope Lord Srinathji keeps blessing all and inspires us to keep the child in us alive!
