    Hi lakshmi I like your village very much. Really you must have made a good attempt to collect such nice dolls. The busy workers look realistic. Kudos. Usha krishnan pinnal kolattam is unique. Vasera you are following the tradition in a far off land with the dolls available here. Nice effort. The zoo attracts me a lot.

    Happy Navarathri to everyone!

    Visit our Ganesha-Themed Golu to know more about our most favorite deity Ganesha.

    It was an interesting experience researching about Ganesha (for e.g. kuttu, thoppukaranam thulasi stories were new to me), collecting ideas about various crafts (art using coffee decoction, quilling, embossing), making them and explaining to all our visitors.

    Special thanks to my husband who encouraged and supported me by taking care of three small kids (5 yr old boy and 1.5 yr old twin girls) while I devoted time to do this.
