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!
