With Navratri comes the excitement of the Golu display. This is my fifth consecutive year of keeping Golu.  
This year's Golu has been a very special one as we started preparation 2 weeks before to plan, sketch and build the 5 stepped Golu with wooden planks from scratch.
My Golu's main theme is to pay tribute to ISRO. It was a very proud moment for every Indian across the world to watch the success of Chandrayaan-3 on September 23rd, 2023. I wanted to re-live the moment and tell the story to my fellow Canadians about Indian space explorations. You can see that on the right side of the display with solar system and all the rockets and satellite launches done by ISRO till now.
To the middle is the 5-stepped Golu arrangement. The first step being the story telling of Lord Ram and Sita Devi. The second step showcases the Krishna Leela's and third step contains handmade Kailash Parvath with Shiva and his family, handmade DIY of Vishnu Dashavataram and our lord Shripada shri vallabha. Fourth step shows the war between two Indian kings and the fifth step has Ashta lakshmi cutouts.

To the left side of the steps is the depiction of Canada in summer and winter. In summer, everyone gets out to hit the farms and enjoy the nature. In winters the weather becomes snowy and festive with Christmas around.

In the evening on Navami, we called a gathering at our house to display Golu to our friends and invited around 9 families for haldi-kumkum. The best part is to watch the excitement in kid's eyes when they see and hear the stories told by me with the Golu dolls. Thank you for the opportunity to share my Golu with all of you. I shall continue to display interesting themes every year with the blessings of Maa Durga Devi. Happy Dussehra to all.
