Tell us about your Golu
Golu for us means childhood sweet memories , smiles and laughter :) We keep this Golu to keep the child in us alive and the energy in us brimming! The pre- festivities of 7-10 days bring us together as a family and keeps our bond closer.
The Hero of our Golu this year is our cute little Ganapa who is the Vignahartha and he is the one who ensured that our Golu's have come so alive and vibrant.
We have kept our Golu in 2 sections, one is our traditional Raja and Rani (attire & jewels are handmade) who represent Able leadership and Prosperity to their subjects and then it follows with the 3 Devi's who represent Knowledge , Prosperity and Courage, 10 Avatara's of the supreme Lord and the man of Principles and fairness Lord Rama and Goddess Sita and other fun dolls which represents the childhood my children. We also have dolls which represent the Mysore Dussera Elephants and procession.
The 2nd section of our Golu has our favorite tradesmen Shetramma and Shetrappa (Gundappa & Gundamma) who holds a special place in every Golu arrangement in the Bangalore & Mysore region. After taking the onus of feeding everyone , this year Shretramma & Shetrappa have expanded their business to textiles where they are ready to dress up everyone!! :)

Looks like only he has the access to vaccination which will relieve the world from the current pandemic!
