Photographer's Note

Hi friends
My computer is fixed, so I am back now...

Goans (people of Goa) celebrate "São João", an annual rain festival or the Feast of John the Baptist, every year on 24th June.
The festival is part of the tradition the Portuguese, who ruled Goa until 1961, have left behind.
The local men are wearing traditional headgear made up of flowers and leaves, and are going out in processions carrying liquor along with them and jumping into wells, streams and ponds.
