Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh, 2019

Goncha is a celebration of the cult of Jagannath in Bastar, bringing in distinctly Odiya practices into the landscape of Bastar. Unlike the complete acculturation of the cult of Danteshwari in Bastar, the Jagannath cult remained relatively un-assimilated.

This video documents the Goncha festival celebrated this year (2019) in Jagdalpur district of Chhattisgarh.
