Parra

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.
