Folk Dance forms of India

GHODE MODNI
The pocket of Goa, for over four centuries a Portuguese colony, still observes an annual Carnival, European fashion. For three days the people surrender themselves to a mood of exceptional gaiety. Apart from pageants and spectacles, the boys and girls indulge in dances of their own. Ghode Modni is a dummy horse presentation, where the dancers, attired gorgeously and armed with swords, recapitulate, through step and movement, the valour and deeds of the Goan warriors of old.
