DEAR LATA,

MY ELDER DAUGHTER IS IN KOCHI ( PSST... THIS DAUGHTER ONLY TOLD ME ABOUT THIS SITE... THE PICTURE OF THE GOLU OF HER HOME AT VIZAG (SHE STAYS IN KOCHI) IS ONE OF THE CONTESTANTS.... FOR GOLU 2010.
I JUST POSTED MY PHUTVA ( BIHARI STYLE FOR PHOTO) JUST LIKE THAT!

I NEVER KNEW I WOULD GET SO MANY FRIENDS

MY HUSBAND IS IN GERMANY AND WILL GO TO MEET MY DAUGHTER IN SPAIN..THEY ARE SPENDING DIWALI TOGETHER.,..

I WAS WONDERING HOW IT WOULD BE...THIS DIWALI FOR ME..

OF COURSE, LATA...AWAIT THE DIWALI CELEBS!

A DHAMAKA !!!

CHEERS AND BEST WISHES IN ADVANCE.

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 Smile

Dear judelined,
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.

love
and
happy diwali

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?)

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.
