The first lot of hawkers of Navaratri kolu bommais have set up shop on North Mada Street in Mylapore.
They put away the images of Krishna and Vinayaka and unpacked bigger crates of bommais for the season ahead, bommais from the traditional centres of Panruti-Villupuram-Puducherry.
These are all big bommais and prices start from Rs.500. Small bommais, and of the classic style, are hardly to be seen just now.
As the days roll on, the street will sport at least 100 hawker stalls and a bazaar will spring u, staying here till the end of September.
