Golu

Well it’s Navratri again and its time for this year’s Golu and like every year we managed to set up the golu, not a big one though we tried to make it with 5 steps this time. For those who are not aware of this, try this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golu (long live wiki !!!).



To start with we have the temple idol at the top and the rest of the gods Krishna, Vishnu and Hanuman at the top most. Put on an eagle hanging from the top representing the Garudar. Mom was not happy about my idea of putting a skull in the middle of the idols neither was my sister. Well it was my weird idea of having the devil along with the gods. Anyways that idea was thrown to recycle bin. So we have the next step showcasing the idols of Dhasavatharam (not the different roles of Kamal though), along with the Astalakshmi idols.




Then we have a Gurukulam at the next step, managed to put my idea in this one; placed an idol of a gal and another guy chatting in the class (frying / kadalai) and there is this beer bottles in the middle of the class and there is one guy who hides one of the bottles for himself. Thanks to my nephew Varun’s idea of placing one of the bottle as if it was over .. that was a cool one.. Then we have this marriage ceremony set at the last setup. Well there are other idols and dolls included to fill in the place .. Here are the snaps of the golu.
