    Ohh, Veiðivötn, a ,,highland gem” known to few, but surely a place to spend time, and a photographers paradise.ReplyCancel

    These two pictures are simply wonderful Rajan.
    Now I am convinced that I should graduate from the point and shoot to Canon 5D Mark II.
    I will visit this church when I am going down to Goa in January.ReplyCancel

The Dhangars are a community of shepherds with small pockets of ancient settlements scattered around Goa. On an early February morning this year I dropped by the village of Mopa in north Goa, in the settlement known as Dhangarwadi. The Dhangars of Mopa are now in danger of losing their traditional habitat if the proposed monstrosity of a new airport goes through. You can always count on corrupt and immoral Goan politicians to defile the last bit of purity left in Goa‘s environment.

For an account of the Dhangars of Goa, download this scan of the chapter from People of India: GOA (Anthropological Survey of India).

    […] in Canacona, south Goa, on a monsoon afternoon this August, we encountered a dhangar (shepherd) clutching goat pups that he revealed had been delivered barely a couple of hours […]ReplyCancel

    WTH do Goa’s polictians have against Dhangars? First Rane throws them out of Poriem to build the new GIM (almost all the students there are ghanttis or domiciled-ghanttis-claiming-to-be-Goan) and now this?!!!ReplyCancel
