Mysore Dasara doll show from September 24

 
Addressing a news conference on Wednesday, Nammavaru Organising Secretary M S Gururaj said that the programme is organised with the aim of bringing a slice of Old Mysore culture to Mangalore by a set of people who have migrated to Mangalore from old Mysore province in search of jobs or as students and have imbibed the local culture beautifully.

He said that apart from display of over 500 dolls, highlight of this year’s show will be the wooden model of Mysore palace replicating the scenes of ‘Jambu Savari’ held in Mysore palace premises during Dasara. The model of Mysore palace itself will have about 50 dolls, including the set of elephants, camels, horses, buffaloes and people carrying percussion.

The display will showcase the culture, lifestyle, traditions that prevailed in Old Mysore provinces and will also have models of Chamundi hills, Mahishasura, Dashavathara, chariots, rathas, Palanquin etc.

Apart from this, little children who come to see the display will be given ‘Bombe Bagana,’ which will be the smaller version of sweet dishes like ‘jalabis’ etc. Nammavaru office-bearers T S Prakash, Meera Gopalakrishna, Anuradha and others were present.
