When golu bommais attack

Happy Navarathri ! And before I forget, all of you are very cordially invited to our family's golu (featured above). Sundal and onion/cauliflower pakoras made fresh everyday. However, you will be given the aforementioned in excess quantity if you sing/dance or are incredibly cute. Please to come :D

Also, some highly pissing off image kinks with blogger.  Some pictures aren't turning out clear. The only solution which is available to me right now is clicking on it.

    I can neither sing nor dance. I'm incredibly ugly, and I can't stop by your place either. But still, is ther something I can do to get sundal/pakodas?

  6. "Bhai kadai la kadaikum paya,
    Sundal pannaga oon aaya*,
    Ada sapada vanda ennaku kudpiya chaaya,
    Illa door kamichu solluviya bye-ya?"


    *aaya is paati and not iskool aaya.


    WTF! Move over Vairamuthu.

  8. Love navaratri sundal. Reminds me that I need to go get some chaat tonight. Onion pakora as prasadam? What abacharam! No onion or garlic to be used in prasadam!

    BTW, isn't the chettiar bommai a tad racially (or, castically?!) insensitive? :D

    @chokkathangam: The devotees are prostrating in front of a procession or some Vaishnavite preachers. I think it's part of a larger scene of a temple procession with Lord Vishnu on an elephant or palanquin behind the well-namam-ed maamas.

  12. Orey the house visits of India. Sundal collection and singing time!!

    First time in the history of navarathri....onion/cauliflower pakoras for navarathri. If I sing, you wouldn't dare to stay there to hand over the pakoras to me!

  13. @everyone
    thanks! :D


    @chokkathangam
    Idling got it right. Its part of the "Garuda Sevai" set and Vishnu is on garuda's shoulders and is carried in a palanquin, surrounded by iyengar mamas with full pattai naamam.

    @Idling
    Yea well, onion pakora/bajjis are not prasadam exactly, they're just for all the aunties who come home. Prasad is sundal wonly. Without poondu-vengayam. :D
    I don't see any racial insensitivity however, with the chettiar bommais. It's a stereotype, much like any other golu doll. Are all brahmins naamam-pota-thoppa mamas? its to show the mercantile area which the chettiars specialized in. And besides, if the chettiars found it offensive, this doll wouldn't be that popular. Its all a matter of perspective. :)

    BTW, one vonly kossen - In the Mama-brigade picture, is the Iyengar mama with the orange flag, Mr. Ramanujachari of 'Sribhashyam' fame?
