Happy Dasara All!
Ah! one off my bucket-list! Yes, I always wanted to set up gombe for Dasara since I can remember. My childhood memories of dasara are from my Attemma's (My father's sister) home. Her gombe display with landscaping is one of the best I have seen till date! She used to have elaborate 7step (or was it 9?), with a huge Mysore landscape with Seethalakshmi Saree House to assorted chappal shops to KRS to Zoo to everything else a child could dream for!
This year we decided to tick this off the list! Along with my able assistants (Aka my babies!) we set up a basic 3 steps and a humble landscaping this year. Ahh It was so much of fun to set it up & watch them coming together. Babies were generous with lending their toys as their contribution. Though the littlest one points at stainless steel kitchen set, mini Hawkin pressure cooker & say " Idu nandu"(This is mine!) to every gombe visitor we have!
Multiple visits to Jayanagar, some browsing for ideas, some mid-night oil and this was the result.
