Every summer, Archana Ramkumar, Sreenag and Shreya Nagarajan (residents of Judge Jambulingam Street, Mylapore) start thinking about their Kolu and what they can do differently.
Over many weeks of mulling over concepts and ideas, a plan starts to come together. After their 2017 Kolu titled “Chicagolu”, they decided on a theme that would stand apart and inspire conversation.
This year, the theme was The Woman Divine. Says Shreya, “With so much happening with the #metoo movement and people constantly not believing women, we felt the need to compare these courageous women to the Goddess and highlight the idea of every woman being a representative of the divine. So we curated a circular golu, doing away with the traditional steps. The focus was on the woman, for her strength, resilience, beauty and valour, and not her association to any man or spouse.”
