    Hi IL friends,
    Let me introduce myself. My name is vijayalakshmi housewife. I started my Golu by buying a new 3 feet RajaGanapati for decorating my golu. Ganapathy gives us everything what we ask for. he is such a simple god who fulfills all our needs cheerfully.And we kept our Traditional Golu(9 steps) on one side, on the other side with Handmade dolls and Furnitures out of used wedding invitation cards.

To stay awake, he decided to pluck a leaf at a time from the tree and drop it, while chanting the name of Shiva.

The tree happened to be a wood apple or bel tree. This unwitting all-night worship pleased Shiva, by whose grace the tribal was rewarded with divine bliss. This story is also recited on Mahashivaratri by devotees on fast. After observing the all-night fast, devotees eat the Prasad offered to Shiva.
    So I invite all of my new friends to our house for

    I think you need to have made "minimum number of posts" to upload pictures. Not sure of the number though! @IL_Admin can you guide her please?
