90

My father, Motilal Parrikar, completed 90 years a few days back on July 9. He was born in the village of Parra in Goa, in the ward known as Salisvaddo. The house he was born in today lies in ruins (*). Our last name takes after our village, now a paradise lost like the rest of Goa.

(*) Behind the ruins is the ancestral home of Manohar Parrikar, the ex-Chief Minister of Goa and now the Leader of the Opposition.
