Over the weekend, I saw a different Goa – Cultural, mythical and colourful.  It was the Shigmo Festival.  It was the first time I had heard of Shigmo, a festival that originated in the villages of Goa as it celebrates the arrival of spring. Dances, floats filled the air as I was told that the pageantry moved from village to village. Each village performs during the festival, based on a certain theme .Goa Tourism is working on a promoting the cultural aspects of the state taking a cue from the others such as  Karnataka Tourism .While a detailed post is coming up soon, I am leaving you with a video from the festival in Panjim.
