Holá from Goa !
They say Paris is always a good idea. True. But for the Desi hearted me, it has always been Goa.
And inspite of Goa being my native abode, and visiting it religiously at least twice a year, the novelty just doesn’t seem to fade off. Infact, just like Goan spirits, it deepens over time.
Despite my customary excursions to this pretty land, there’s an exclusive expedition I wish to embark on, devoid of all the typical cliché spots it has to offer.
Yes, there’s no space for Baga or Basilica in this itinerary. And yet, it’s a plan for Goa. Howwzzat ?!
Goa has a unique alcove in every Indian’s heart. It’s almost synonymous to partying for us. After all, where else would you find such a roiling mix of Portuguese and Indian cultures!
You recall that quaint, happy, quirky life that Mario Miranda sketched? He had a nose for the everyday life of that vintage-world charm of Goa. Let’s soak ourselves into y’day, once more.
