I just received email invitations to several friends' homes here, and I fell to musing on the festival...and I thought of this song from the movie,"Navaratti", where Sivaji Ganesan plays nine roles.
Though I am not parituclarly fond of this rather contrived song, it shows the traditons of a few decades ago.
Golu, or Kolu
Apparently, the word means, "divine presence".
is a post of mine, with a photo I took of my friends' golus.
is a post I made about Navami (Saraswati Puja, in Bengali, Sorosshoti Pujo).
is a post from my blog on Citizen Matters, with a lot of photos associated with the 10-day festival.
Happy Navaratri to all my friends who celebrate it! I will be visiting some friends here in St.Louis over the weekend, and will share the photos, too.
