Goa Shigmo 2013

Looks like another poorly organised Shigmo, Panjim shigmo 30/3/13.
Last Romtamel to start at the Origin was at 8.15pm About 75 groups in all including Romtamell.
Last main float (Chitrarath) left at the origin at around 10.30pm which mean at Azad Maindan (terminating point) it will reach around 11.45pm
It was to start at 3.30pm but started after 5.30pm as usual

Ponda Shigmo - 27th March 2013

Looks like Ponda shingmo poorly organised despite the shared expertise of Ravi Naik’s group.

Members both men and women with saffron headgears seen loitering in the middle

 Orgainsed by Goverment of Goa, Tourism Dept
in association with Antruz Mahal Shigmoutsav Samiti, Ponda

Started with Minister Sudin, Lavoo Mamledar etc at around 5.30pm

Romtamel started soon after that but at damn slow speed. The first group which started around 5.45 reached the terminating point (City bus stand) just after 8pm.

Last Romtamel group must have started at originating point just after 8pm which was to be followed by the main floats (Chitrarat).

We had to abandoned at 8pm and as such we did not see any of the floats depicting mythological characters
