Every year, during the feast of ‘Sao Joao’, the feast of St. John, Goans put on crowns of wildflowers called kopels, drink feni and jump into wells to celebrate the arrival of the monsoon. An enthusiastic Kejriwal all geared to woo the electorates of the state left no stone unturned, but clearly it has backfired.
