Tell us about your Golu
I have been decorating Golu for the last 45 years since my daughter was born. It has grown slowly over the ages as I collected newer dolls. I have always kept 5 steps and on most years I have also created a park. I make yummy goodies every day for prasadam and have different groups of friends visiting every day. My dolls range from traditional clay/paper mache gods as well as festive collections to contemprary mementos collected from our trips to different parts of the country/world. These 10 days are a great source of energy for our family and help renew/restore and keep alive all our human connections.
