Navaratri 2013

Every year I look forward to Navaratri.

Excitement of opening up the doll collection and thinking of the arrangements is a preoccupation before Navaratri comes around.  There is a tradition of adding a new doll every year.  You may as "why?"  Olden days they were mud or clay dolls and each year one would have a causality of one or more dolls.   You would not place damaged dolls in display.  Our ancestors were smart.  Weren't they?

Welcome our Gombe display of 2013.

This was in the foyer area to extend a warm welcome to our guests.  As my kids are grown up, there isn't much driving them around to different activities anymore.  I meet some folks every year only during Navaratri.  I look forward to that.

Here is a glimpse of my display this year:

So folks I do hope you had a wonderful Navaratri as I did.  Do post your comments.  I love hearing from you.
