Description
About the book

It was in the 1960s that the magic of Gnu’s beaches was discovered by people often referred to as hippies’: in a way they fashioned Goa as a tourist destination for the more mundane travellers, Over the decades, visitors have come in droves to be enchanted by the drama of the sinking sun on isolated beaches and seaside cliffs: by the fusion of old Indian traditions and later Catholic practices: by the atmosphere of fun and action co-existing with sea-deep calm and repose: by the stately churches and the Portuguese-flavoured streets: and by tine cheap booze and the inimitable feni.

While it’s true that there is life here beyond sun, surf and sand the Goa inland, its village life, culture and magnificent heritage (and we do bring you snippets of these) it’s on Goa busy beaches that the business of leisure is pursued in right earnest, Just so that you do not lose yourself here (only in the more prosaic sense of the word ‘lose’), we have divided Goan beaches into two sections: the North and the South. And brought you Panjim. Madgaon anti Vasco — the hubs that act as gateways to these beach destinations.

For tourists who would rather experience delights of Goa from the vantage point of a sheltered habitat, there is a selection of beach resorts. And for those, who go on holidays to be mare active, not less, there arc water sports. the famous Goan nightlife and shopping In explore and experience.

So go ahead and discttvcr your own niche on the Gaan coast.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
