The nine days are usually filled with visitors who arrive home , eat “sundal “, sing songs, comment on the collection and go home.Those who keep “kalasa” do puja every day and celebrate it in all religious zeal. To me however, I am more into the art and the cultural aspect of the festival and helps me connect with my roots..

The first nine days are a time of prayer, feasting and social gathering. The last day – Vijayadashami – is a day of renewal or new beginning. Here's a look at the different ways in which India celebrates.

Hello Everyone,

I am excited to share my creations with you all as much as I did enjoy making them. We have all heard of the saying in Tamil "Noyatra vaazhve kuraivatra selvam" meaning "Health is Wealth". How many of us actually take time to follow this? Here's my Village scene from India showing an emphasis on good health. Prevention is better than cure. Follow the wellness industry. "Iyyarkaiyaga thayaarikkapatta Maatru Vitamin"

The Village scene and Zoo are handcrafted by me. I have tried to capture lot of details including Arasamarum Pillayar (Ganesh under peepal tree), cow shed, some shops selling fruits and vegetables, hawkers, women carrying water from the well, farmers following organic methods of farming without the use of insectides or pesticides, some dwelling units and a Ganesha temple on top of the hill. The hill in actual scale is about 18" tall and is made of papier mache. I have even showed the teppakulam, bullock cart and to add to the landscape lots of coconut trees and other trees. The coconut trees are also made by me.

All the materials used are eco friendly.
