    Hello Namaskaram,

    I am new to Indus Ladies and look forward to a lot of learning. Soumya_golu-mantapam_view_9840880316.jpg Soumya_golu-side_view_9840880316.jpg Soumya_golu-title_view_9840880316.jpg Soumya_golu-welcome_view_9840880316.jpg

    Please find my entry for "Navarathri Kolu Contest" attached with this mail are pictures taken at my kolu. Five photographs attached

    This year Kolu at our place has the Theme of Temples. Each display has a small write-up with the respective temple displayed in front. For the viewer it will offer a glimpse of our great temples and culture.

    At the entrance of the house there are ornamental drops welcoming the visitor to the Kolu and a summary of what temples are about. The main kolu has several temples with extracts about the history of each temple printed and displayed behind the arrangement.

    Additionally there is a video slide show of the various temples along with vedic chanting on the background.

    All this offers a pleasant and educative experience to the viewer

    You are welcome to visit our Kolu during this Navaratri.

    thanks and regards
    mrs.soumya sriram
