Magic of the Goan monsoon.
A deserted, rainy, windswept Vagator beach this Sunday morning.
An earlier post on Vagator here.
A spin through my ancestral village.
Parra in the Bardez taluka of Goa is my ancestral village and the source of my last name. My father, Motilal Parrikar, was born here 91 years ago in a house that now lies in ruins. Next to it is the ancestral home of Goa‘s current Chief Minister. We often drive through the village, savouring its delicate beauty and quiet (while they last). See this earlier blog post as well.
More tales from Monsoon 2012 in Goa.
The images of the fishermen were taken on Tiracol river in Keri (Querim) in Pernem. The paddy field is from Vazrem, and the quartet from Nadoda, both villages in Bardez.
