I have been keeping dasara display for nearly 38 years now. It's a tradition which is followed in our home from 3 generations atleast. We have 4 pairs of patada gombes including my grandmother's pair, my mother in laws pair and mine. The oldest pair is more than 100 years old. There is also a pair of 120 year old brass patada gombe in our home. That is very unique.
The uniqueness of our golu is that the whole set up is cost effective. We use our creativity and avaliable resources to craft unique themes from 3 years.
In our gombe display this year we have 3 sections.
1. The main gombe display on a 5 step padi including the traditional dolls like the devis. Lakshmi Saraswati and Durga. Then comes Ashtalakshmi set etc
2. The first theme of our Golu display is the Sri Vaikunta dwaram. We have tried to recreate the Vaikunta dwaram using easily available material. We have displayed an idol Lord Paramapadanathan in the middle of the Vaikunta dwaram. Lord Paramapadanathan is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu who resides in ThiruVaikuntam🙏🙏 The Lord has 3 consorts Sridevi, BhoomaDevi and NeelaDevi🙏🙏We have also taken care of minute aspects like the vimana gopura, the dasavathara which are usually on the door frames in temples. Also the shatari, teertha and ladoo prasada are part of our festivities.
The Vaikunta dwaram temple set up was created using logistics available at hoke like bookshelves, benches, mats and umbrella for the Vimana gopura
3. The 2nd theme is our Handmade Navadurga display. We have included nearly ten aspects of the daily navadurga pooja including colour of each day, bhog of the day, naivedyam of the day, flower of each day. There are 9 satvic grains grown and consumed during Navratri. 9 sacred leaves or nnavapatrika are used for the devis puja one each day. Then we have created rangolis for each day. There are also ragas and kritis for each day of Navratri. We have thoroughly researched all these aspects from 2 months
The Navadurga dolls sit on a Peacock pedestal with a backdrop of real peacock feathers.
I am an international Golu award winner from 2 years.
Please go through our display pics and video. Wishing everyone a very Happy Dasara or Navratri.
We have displayed our labour of love and dedication to the Lord and Devi's. May the Lord and Devi's bless you and your families abundantly 🙏🙏🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️
