Bommaigalil oru Blooper

The weekend before Navarathri is usually very hectic. I take great pride in my golu bommais which are neatly packed and labeled in separate cartons.

The Giri trading golupadi is by far the most complicated structure I have ever come across and setting it up takes more than two hours with more than a five dozen nuts and bolts. My better-aaf helps me quite a bit in setting up and I do the decoration part of it.

Lack of space is one big deterrent for us to add a big set of bommai year after year but we manage to add a small set somehow.

My next post will have full-on Golu pics with the newbies of the year... but before that, have a look at this ultra cute blooper-bommai! I hope to auction this bommai someday and make a million bucks out of it!

Imported pamabaati & Ashtalakshmi after the last India trip. They occupied even more space and had to retire some of the local dolls from 'Christmas Tree Shops' (read Noah's ark, halloween themed toys)

Next year planning on going big with 9 padis.
