A portrait from Cumbarjua, Goa. This island town maybe small but it's beauty is beyond words.

Cumbarjua’s major festival is the Ganesh Chaturthi, celebrated by every section of the Hindu population. During Chaturthi the village comes alive and even attracts handsome crowds from the neighbouring villages, to witness their famed sangodd. It is a rare spectacle in which at least 25 canoes participate. Carrying the idols of Ganapati on the country craft, the devotees take seven rounds of nearly 200 metres each. By that time it is dark enough, and the lamps glitter in the waters as the Ganesh idols and clay figurines are finally immersed. The locals can’t remember when the sangodd ritual originated but believe that it has been observed piously for more than a century.

It was an amazing experience and I am looking forward to next year's visarjan.
