I have been keeping golu for 17yrs starting in Singapore,since my first daughter was born with only Durga,Lakshmi and Saraswathi along with her toys.
I shifted to coimbatore by 2013 and started to have good collections of bommais. I made a custom made 9 steps stand and started keeping methodically since then..
Basically,Golu is worshipping Goddesses Durga,Lakshmi and Saraswathi. So my first step in top consists of these 3 Goddesses who are above all the Gods. Without Sakthi , no Shivan...
Without Shivan, no Sakthi, so my next step has Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma .
3rd step again has Goddesses Ashtalakshmis arranged in order..
4th step has Dasavatharam, the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu.
5th step has Lord Krishna with gopikas and Geetha upadesam..
6th step has the elder son of Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, in various designs.
7th step has the younger son Lord Muruga, his arupadai veedu and also the son of Lords Shiva and Vishnu, Lord Ayyappa..
8th step has the Mahaans, born as humans who attained mukthi through their devotion to God. Adhisankarar,Raghavendrirar,Saibaba,Buddha..
9th step has humans ..2marriages happening...
The floor beneath the 9th step has animals, birds, insects and plants..
My theme is basically on evolution of life.. life started from a single cell then multiplied.. likewise,our lives started from plants to insects, birds, animals, humans,mahaans and finally to God's feet(Mukthi)..
In the floor, there are Settiyar and his wife with various grains ,fruits and vegetables..
I have kept 3 pairs of Marapaachi bommais of various sizes given by my mother decorated with sarees and dhotis.
In front of them, we have Barbies with their kids playing in swings.
Also we have Navadhaniyam kept for kids to know about our tradition..
Also I have kept 2 bigg kuthuvilakku made divine by keeping Ambal faces to their top.. they bless all who comes to see them.
Finally we have Snow World with Snow man and his kid along with Elsa,Anna and Olaf in the snow..
When I describe my golu in words, I feel my golu is like a fusion as there are Gods and Goddesses along with Marapacchi,Barbies and Snow world..I felt Golu should be both traditional for elders and also entertaining the kids..

Thanks for giving me this opportunity which made me understand my golu more than anything..
