After the grand success of last year's Parkonnim contest, Chicalim Bio-Crusaders are running this heritage quiz for you once again, with new challenging parkonnims and exciting prizes.

What is a Parkonnim? 🤔

Parkonnim is a Konkani word which in English translates as Riddle. Before the advent of radio and television as a means of entertainment, 'Parkonnim' was one of the pass-time entertainment in the village Maand or the Balcao

The elderly would challenge the youngsters with these Parkonnims testing the analytical ability of the family members, neighbours or community members.

However, today these Parkonnims have been forgotten and hardly recollected or used as a pastime.
