Vacation

It is Pooja/Navrathri time. I see a lot of people up to a lot of things. At home, we have never had a golu. I frankly thought it was a huge waste of time, setting up dolls for people to come, see, comment and cook food for all those that came home. Now, When i am living on my own away from most people who matter, i realise that golu is a beautiful way of socialising. In a time and place where women had no place to go to work and nothing to do at home, a golu would have kept them occupied and kept the culture alive, transferred from one generation to another in the form of stories.

I dont think i will ever be in a state where i dont work in my life. i am not sure if i will have time to keep and invite people for, a golu. However, I wonder if having a golu is an interesting way of collecting information about my rich culture. Maybe next year. :)
