Zip, Zap, Zoom Ratri!

Seriously, did any of you feel like Navratri just flew by?   At the Avial household, a month of prep work went into getting things ready for the festival and before we knew it the nine days got over!

This year, H built me a wooden stand with five steps. This and the fact that my parents were here to celebrate Navratri for the first time with me, inspired me to set up the golu on a grand scale.  The five steps had mostly traditional dolls and on the side Narad and I made a small Christmas village which came out pretty good I must say 🙂

It was a lot of fun though, meeting up with old friends and family and making new ones.

Below are a few pictures of this year’s golu.

Ciao for now,
