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.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
