And do check out Rajan Parrikar’s scenes of the narkasur night:

In Hindu mythology, the cruel Narkasur got his just desserts at the hands of Lord Krishna. After a night of boisterous merrymaking the effigies of Narkasur are consigned to flames in the small hours of the morning, ushering in Deepavali (aka Diwali). Goans take their Narkasur-making technology seriously. The tableaux exhibited in the hinterland, home to the traditional artists and craftsmen, are particularly arresting. The images presented here are from in and around the city of Panjim and may serve to convey the flavour of the night.
