Dasara at Home

Dasara (Navarathri) has just concluded and here is a small video of Dasara doll arrangements at house. More than Dasara it was known to us as ‘Gombe habba’ (ಗೊಂಬೆ ಹಬ್ಬ) back when we were kids.

MOV A, B

Examination time, as usual all of us were busy in collecting notes from others and getting it photo copied. Somehow we had reached the end of 5th semester.
