  1. The 3D views looks great. Every dolls come real with the 3D glasses. But the images are murkier without glasses. What is the trick to make the 3D views of a Golu?

  2. AnanthaSri has posted the photographs in 3D format. Mylapore Times can atleast host the link to it. The Traditional Kolus are high density kolus and only 3D can portray it vividly. Why not do it when technology is available for it today? Next year all will tune their idea for a 3D photographs as well

  3. hi.. Iam happy to see so many golu photos.. even i have sent my entry.. I would like to know the reason for not publishing it in the website..
