Being too young to imbibe the essence of Golu last year, this time was my two-year old son's first experience of Navaratri Celebrations. Never tiring to pick the dolls and admiring them, the young one was awe-struck by this colourful display... we all had a fun-filled experience. Who says Bomma golu is for girls only?!

Rangoli: Navaratri Contest
Created by radhika64 on 2010-10-18,

I am participating for the first time. The theme is "Mythological Splendour"
My Navrati Kolu has 5 steps. The top most step is dedicated to Rajareshwari and all devi forms, followed by the next step with Nataraja and various dance music forms. The third step with the kalasha has two themes one -a riverside theme and the other being a temple procession theme. The fourth and fifth steps are dedicated to kailasam and Vishnu forms respectively, with a lot of general items added.

The park has three aspects, all hand made by me , except for the dolls in it. The first is a pilgrimage to Badrinath, the middle one being a Village scene and the last one is Shakuntala's ashram (kanva maharishi).

The rangoli in the front though small is layered with small red manjadi seeds.

Do let me have your feedback. I have really enjoyed setting this up.

Happy dussehra.

2 photos one of the entire kolu and one of the park is being attached.

This Golu is in my friend’s house and they celebrates every year with adding new dolls each time with new message. Each step tells different story.
