Hi, we are Gayathri and Sriram from Toronto. This is our second year participating In the Golu contest. My Golu is completely handmade and I have made more than 180 dolls respresenting 14 different themes comprising of a traditional swami set, karthigai pengal, kutcheri set, ponniyin selvan, pandavas, bharata vilas, Harry potter, arsenal football team, friends tv show, disney princesses, karaikudi house, chettiyar kadai, sandhai & kalyana vaibogam 😊
Unlike a mainstream golu, I wanted to showcase many of our favourite characters, that would speak for who we are as a family and something that would stand out unique making it interesting for the visitors as well as the viewers. I hope you enjoyed our golu.

Namaskaram,
I am Gayathri Sriram from Thiruporur.
Every year we are eagerly waiting to see the dolls faces.Each and every doll set is so cute.cuteness of the dolls is really hidden inside.on the Navaratri festival everyone will be so eager to see the golu.Apart from that we will explain each and every set of dolls.For example markandeya set.In that we explain like this is markanden 16 year old boy .he is devotee of Siva and his life time is 16 years.yama will come to take his life then markandeya will hold siva lingam tightly then siva comes and give blessings like that etc,.........
Everyone will be suprised to listen the stories of each and every set.

Dolls also has stories and explanations.Very interesting right!!!
My mother used to keep golu from my childhood .On one Navaratri festival day my mother dressed me like devi ma holding sugarcane in one hand and sulam in other hand.Now every time I keep golu I used to remember my childhood days .It's very interesting cultural festival.I really love navaratri.
.
After my marriage this is my 18 th year I am doing golu festival.Now my daughters are learning how to keep golu and importance of golu.Like that generations to generations they sholuld know the importance of our festivals and they should follow🙏🏻
