Mumbai istyle as in limited space or busy schedules?? Whichever it is, your golu is really cute. How about a closer look at those marapaachi dolls and I love those masks on top - can you zoom that for us too please?? Good to know that lots of people still follow traditions even though they hardly have enough time - well done

it is not a mask..
it is jagannath trio of puri.
ofcourse, we try....
my festivals are celebrated as per my workschedule... the almighty is not annoyed with me in any way.

Look at the chettiar and his lady sitting and chattiing casually! Are they not in Mumbaikars?
Though the golu is small, your pooja with lot of flowers seems to be elaborate! Good!

Jyothy, you do not want prize, but like to have our valuable comments no?
I love your golu. It has everything a golu needs. Looks devine also. The flowers esp, the lotus looking fresh. Chettiar jodi is very cute.Did you sing anysong or chant any slokas in praise of the goddess? where is the chundal prasadam!
I am asking toomuch no?)

happy diwali in advance.
your name evoke(d) terror... i studied in coimbatore...avinashilingam college and the principal was Dr Rajammal Devadas,.... a terror in our times... of course, i know her worth now...
thanks for the comments.
we had the laksharchana and i sent these photos to my daughters.
chundal.. can be sent..if you let me know your whereabouts....

Your idea of balancing both is appreciable,rather than the number of steps

Dear Jyothi Mam,
Your Golu arrangement is very cute. I liked those chettiyaar jodi. Chettiar amma looks so casual and chatting with chettiar. Your flower arrangement and pooja decorations looks divine.
