#BarAThon – Four Corners of the World
Welcome to Day 4 of #BarAThon with blogarhythm. Today’s Theme is: Four Corners of the World
One of my favorite placed to visit as a child was the International Dolls Museum in New Delhi – The sheer collection of dolls from the different parts of the world was absolutely fascinating and their stories (which my mom and I used to make up) riveting!
Inspired by Suzy’s post on Dolls, which you can read here, I wanted to share with you about my favorite Doll from the Four Corners of the World.
My no. 1 and absolutely favorite are the Matryoshka Dolls.
What’s so special about it:
A matryoshka doll is also known as a Russian nesting doll, stacking dolls, or Russian doll, is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another. (source: Wikipedia)
They are also a great example of a symbolic and cultural representation of a nation and folk art.
You can read about my love and fascination with Symbology here!
I remember the first time I met them (the dolls), they were lining the bathtub of an aunt who has the most gorgeous soul – and from that day, I felt like the Matryoshka Dolls are always smiling at me and creating a happy environment.
It was many years later that I got my own set, which alas, got misplaced. And it is only in the last year, that I received a second set of Matryoshka dolls!
I cherish them, and they adorn the top of the Television set in my room – A constant reminder of SMILES and the many layers which make up Life and Me!

Well, I love dolls too but am now too old to play with any. So I have my real life grandchildren instead 🙂
What a lovely post that led me to indulge into a little trip down memory lane! Reminded me of mine which I had as a kid. A set of three Russian dolls and I absolutely adored them.
