Diwali décor, sweets, lights, etc have made it to Goa's markets as the festival nears.
A variety of akash kandils made from paper, cloth, etc. can be seen hanging outside shops.
Nowadays, many prefer taking home small effigies of Narkasura rather than large ones. The burning of the effigy sets the tone for the festivities.
From vibrant rangolis to gleaming diyas, the markets are ablaze with Diwali décor. The festival is incomplete without these things.
Different types of lamps are available in the market, each with its own unique design.
One can also choose from the many Diwali hampers and décor items that are available in the market.
Goa awaits a silent and tranquil Diwali this year, but will it be? Time to refrain from bursting polluting firecrackers as directed by the Supreme Court.
