My Golu consists of a main golu and a theme Golu. My main Golu is made of 7+5+1 padis; 7 steps in the front, 5 to the side and 1 that connects both. Theme Golu is based on mythological stories and Indian traditions and I change this every year. This year I chose Ramayan. This picture here is the main Golu.

Rangoli: Our Navarathri golu
Created by manisang on 2010-10-19,

We had a great Navarathri celebration this year. Hightlight of this year's pooja was the Lalitha Sahasranama Pooja done by Shringeri mutt.
We do a different theme in our golu every year. We had built a small Indian village this year. Kids had a wonderful time making all the huts and houses. We had hatched roof and brick houses built.sowed seeds around for fields in the village. We made a small well, bullock cart, temple etc.I was so happy that I was practically able to show and tell the kids on how simple life in a village would be.
I am happy that Navarathri is well done by all Indians here and it is exposing our kids to the rich Indian culture.
