Bonderam festival of #Goa is celebrated on the Divar #Island. Every year in #August, this small island becomes alive with bubbling activity of the #Bonderam #festival. The people residing here come together to #celebrate this festival and a carnival-like atmosphere is created here. Colourful tableaux are created by the people and a massive parade takes place and every small community or a group of people come together to celebrate Bonderam festival in Goa. . There is elaborate feasting during the Bonderam festival and every household is decorated thus presenting a scenic and #colourful picture. The villagers engage in a mock fight that represents the knocking down of the flags during the time of the #Portuguese. . #indiaheritagedesk #IHD #festivalsofindia #festivals #indianfestivals #bonderamfestival #celebration #fun #like #love #carnival #colours #happy #india #igers
