Festive Creativity!

Last Friday, on August 28, I performed, Varalakshmi puja at my home. Every year, I look forward towards decorating the Varalakshmi devi (The Goddess of Boons) and try to be creative. For more information about this wonderful tradition check my blog post at:https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=4303195915708670428#editor/target=post;postID=5754354575422591668;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=1;src=postname

And every year, I am amazed and inspired by the creativity of many of the South Indian women who perform this pooja too, by decorating their Varalakshmi devi with great enthusiasm and zest.
Here is a glimpse at some of the beautifully decorated Varalakshmi idols. I was visited some of their houses, last Friday and witnessed their creativity! And some more which I happened to come across via their posts on Facebook…
