Youth from Batlem, Panjim have begun their work on building Narkasurs. With slightly more than 20 days to go for Diwali, Goan youth are in a race to make the most attractive and creative Narkasur. However, like last year, the festival this year too, will be celebrated under the shadow of covid 19.
On the eve of Diwali, the people of Goa celebrate the victory of Lord Krishna over the demon king, Narkasur. Effigies of the demon Narkasur are made before being burnt. This marks the commencement of the festival of light and end of evil and darkness.
