Navaratri is a time when many homes in Chennai feast on colours, light, music and food. A significant part of the Navratri festival includes the tradition of the Bommai Golu, which is a creation of an assembly of dolls that signify the richness and diversity of life. It is believed that this creation is born from the Mother Divine, and Navrati is the time for one to remember, revere and worship the source – the Devi.
@ Mirra, Navratri is a time when children coming to Mirra experience building the golu steps, setting up the golu bommai and creating themes of their own from materials made available.
Children participated in the making of the prasadam, creating the rangoli with flowers and colours and setting up their own creations.
