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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
