My Golu theme for this year is Arupadai veedu. The speciality of my golu is a mini version.As we are immigrants, we always practice minimalism as we cannot carry big golu dolls everywhere we travel so I opted for a mini version of golu which I can pack in one medium cardboard box. I started my mini version in 2015 and I do my themetic representation of golu on the sides of my main golu each year. Chettiyar mart, maadu meikum kanne, kolam theme, Nava durgas are some of my previous years golu theme. I shared detailed explanation of how I made my steps , where I sourced my dolls and how I pack my dolls and everything on my youtube channel and my blog vikalpah.com .
This year I chose Arupadai Veedu as the theme, I created different type of mountains to give a little variety. I made sand mountains, airdry clay version and also used window insulation foaming spray to create swamimalai and pazhani. For thiruchendur I added waterbeads to show it is nearby the sea. I made printouts of the each temple gopuram and the forms of muruga to show the uniqueness and also for easy storage. Hope you all like my compact version of golu.
