Take a peek at Mamatha Devaraj's golu from United Kingdom (+44)
Tell us about your Golu
This is the first year I have kept Golu. I did it to keep up the family tradition on my mother’s side of the family and to introduce this festival to my daughter. I have kept the dolls on 5 steps with kalasha, Lakshmi and Saraswathi dolls on the first step. Second step for deities- Ganesha, Shiva , Parvathi , Murugan , patada gombe and ashta Lakshmi dolls. Third step for Dashavatar and dancing wooden dolls of various deities.
4 th and 5th steps are from scenes of everyday life - grocery shops, marriage scene and sangeetha kacheri. My daughter Namitha has arranged her lego toys and created a park scene. We have grown ragi as grass. We have thoroughly enjoyed the whole festival period and it has brought us together as a family. My daughter has been doing th arati and learning aigri nandini song.
