Goa Pearl of the East
Goa Pearl of the East
Description
About the Book:

GOA's fascination and charm arise partly from its sheer natural beauty and partly from its distinct Indo-Iberian culture, Goa's best known contemporary writer, Mario Cabral e sa, attempts to capture the essence of this amalgam of cultures in his laconic style, peppered with a distinctively Goan sense of humour. He flits from history to legend, from tales of love to tales of gore, from Catholic orthodoxy to hedonistic manifestations of liberation, very Latin in spirit, in order to define the identity of this tiny island. What emerges is a memorable account of the essentially Portuguese connection of the state and the history of some of its important monuments and feast days. Lavish colour pictures and centrespreads by Amit Pasricha buttress the uniqueness and vivacity of the state's culture.

About the Author:

MARIO CABRAL E SA, a graduate of the Portuguese lycee, is a well known journalist and prolific writer whose articles on a variety of topics have been published in reputed newspapers and magazines in India and abroad.

As an expert on Goa's history and culture, he had researched the scripts and been the cultural advisor for a number of Goa-related feature and documentary films produced by national and international units. He was associated with the production of the Sea Wolves and was the cultural adviser to the noted director Shyam Benegal in the production of the award-winning film, Trikaal. Mario Cabral e Sa lives in Goa with his wife and two children on his small ancestral island called Divar.

AMIT PASRICHA, born in a family of photographers, was already taking pictures at the age of six. By the time he graduated from St. Stephen's College in 1986 he had established a reputation as a professional photographer. After working with leading National Geographic photographers in Maine, USA, he settled down to serious 'social landscape' photography. He has travelled extensively in India and abroad. For this book Amit visited Goa three times to participate in what he calls the 'seasonal flow of spirit'.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
