We have lived in 13 houses across 5 cities in the last 25 years – we just kept moving and moving and moving….and not all of the moving can fairly be blamed on my husband’s transferable job. We kept moving even after he quit bank to join a private concern.
13 proved to be a lucky number for us – my family’s lived in house number 13 for the last 6 years now, the longest ever in a single house. Our fellow travellers have weathered this crazy shifting business for years – furniture, kitchenware, albums, the golu bommai especially the “best out of waste” models my daughter and I made for golu.
Some of our creations like an English Fort, the Howrah bridge and the Cubbon Park (children’s park in Bangalore) din’t survive. This year I din’t keep golu but we took out the warriors who have faithfully weathered our eccentric shifts – some of these are from my college days.

Those of who still haven’t read The Adventures of Asterix (!!!), please do the human race a service and pick up a copy at the earliest. The Asterix set of paper models are 27 years old.
Although I din’t take out my large collection this year, Lakshmi did keep a small Golu. This is the second year of Golu at her home. Some pictures of Lakshmi’s Golu
