Once again, poorly managed Panjim Carnival floats
Was to start at 3pm but it started after 4.30pm (at Old Secretariat, VIP Lounge / Pavilion)
People were seen impatiently waiting to watch float parade since 3pm at around Panjim Ferry Viewing galley etc but they watched the first float around 5.15pm
It takes about 2 hours from start to end.
e.g. A float (Swaach Bharat) which left 18.13 at starting point seen arriving at the terminating point at Kala Academy 20.05pm
In Goa, its darker around 6.30 pm but the last float to leave at starting point was 7.20pm and must have reached at KA 9.15pm
Half the time, our King Momo was invisible from his podium.. Don't know if his carriage height to blame
Some good and traditional floats were seen at the end in the dark and hurriedly moving
Plenty of Police mamas including PI, SP etc inside the barrier thus causing obstructions to clear view

Most of the faces don't look Goan nor a lot of the decorations. Why not?
