Very very beautiful golu arrangement. The vilakku poojai set steals the show,. Lovely it is.
Where are those add-ons? In your description you had mentioned about disney land set up and the mango story which was the root cause for Pazhani Muruga. But I could not see them here.
All the best and keep it up
