Narkasur

The evil faces are lined up for sale. Every year around Diwali, the youngsters all over Goa will busy themselves constructing the NARKASUR EFFIGIES. The effigies are then burnt on the night before Diwali. This is supposed to be a symbolic act of ending all the evil.

The colorful scary masks will be fitted on huge torsos constructed using metal rod skeleton filled with hay and covered with jute sheets.

Hundreds of such effigies will be set ablaze on the night of 27th this year.

A large number of youth clubs around Goa are busy making the effigies of this mythological demon, oblivious to the activities of the real demons who are on the rampage in the state.

In the capital city of Panaji an Advocate is brutally attacked for speaking up against a minister. In another place near Ponda a Village Sarpanch is bent on converting a pristine village into a garbage dump, not caring for the environment and peoples sentiment.

In Ponda a minor girl is lured, blackmailed and raped by a gang of young men.

The real demons are busy busy
We are happy burning the effigies
Ending the evil only symbolically.....
