Hello dear Judges and all organising panel members, wishing you all a very happy Navaratri. MYy name is Anjani, and I'm from Wales UK. I'm really excited to participate in this golu competition. Its my second time participation in Saptavarna competitions.Last year I participated in kolostavam.
Now coming to the point, its my first time golu in my whole life. I have been seen somany golus in childhood but after that I never seen any. So literally it's my first golu.
I don't have any proper golu toys as it is my first one, but got all the enthusiasm. So I decided to do myself all the toys.
Theme:RECYCLE, RECREATE, RESTORE AND PRESERVE THE TRADITION.
I made 95% of my golu toys, only 5%are shop bought. I tried to add making video but bcoz of 3 min video restriction I tried my level best to add some background work pics.
I used clay, old cloth, plastic bottles, glass jars, laces, cardboard, kids unused toys what not😀.
The final result made me emotional and confident to participate.
I made sofa sets, mama maami, Balaji, loads of sweets, fruits, veggies, all the old traditional kitchen utilities, utensils,. I turned my lil girl's barbies in to Indian bahamas 😀.Made a cardboard mandir fir Balaji, and cloth elephants.
Made flowers with paper.
Step1:In the first step I arranged 2 ganesha idols one is plaster of Paris one and the navadhabya ganesha in the both sides of handmade Balaji's face. Outside 4 handmade rajasthan elephants.
Step 2:-In the second step I arranged little Krishna on the handmade unjal, and radhakrishna under the handmade umbrella. 2 hand made diyas.
Step3:In the third step I arranged two barbies with sweets and haldi kumkuma trays on hands on the both sides of the maama maami surrounded by our traditional food and snacks.
Step4:In the fourth step I arranged traditional handmade kitchen with all the kitchen stuff and old trantional stone grinder etc. And bommai saare with wooden toys.
Step 5:-In the fifth step I arranged modern kitchen with Western food on dining table and a living room scene.
Righthand side country side cottage and railway track with train. And the opposite side handmade sofa set with toys.
Step6:In the sixth step arranged two barbies who are turned into proper Indian Bhamas with flowers and welcome trays in hand. In between them handmade kolam design and with peacock deepa
