Bonderam is celebrated on the Goan island of Divar in the month of August. With costumes, floats and merriment, this festival is nothing short of a mini Carnival.
The Konkani word, touxeache refers to 'cucumbers', thus giving us an idea of what this particular feast is about. Every year, the village of Talaulim, in Tiswadi, celebrates this feast wherein people make offerings of cucumbers to St Anne as they pray for the gift of a child.
Konsachem fest commemorates the celebration of the new harvest. Harvest festivals are celebrated all across Goa in places such as Raia, Salvador do Mundo and Taleigao in the month of August.
