Govinden: fervor, spirituality and conviviality

A month of fasting and piety, dedicated to Govinden. The Tamil community has been paying homage to the god Krishna for three weeks now. Prayers are said every Saturday in the different kovils of the island. 

Devotees sing praises, recite Vedic verses and perform dances in honor of the god Krishna.  In Bain-des-Dames, a marquee was erected to host a night of prayer on Saturday October 3. This session took on special symbolism for Rajamba this year. His wish through his prayers: to spare the world from Covid-19 and its devastation.
