    Memories from my childhood came rushing to me when I saw the “Verdant” photograph.ReplyCancel

      Very soon, memories are all you’ll have left after these fields are all paved over with concrete (aka “development”).ReplyCancel

    Thank you for capturing these beautiful images of Goa for our future generations Rajan Bab! The rice paddy fields with the coconut trees have from time immemorial been a part of Goa’s image lovingly cultivated and preserved by our forefathers.

    Our Government in Goa now wants to get rid of both – saying the coconut palm is not a tree and the rice paddy fields are weeds!!!ReplyCancel

      India is a lawless, corrupt land. Too bad Goa came to be tied to it with no protections whatsoever.ReplyCancel

    I very much enjoy “Verdant”. Its rich greens complement the background mist beautifully. Excellent work Rajan!

    Best wishes,

    Pray God is looking from above to save our Coconut trees and paddy fields from concrete monstrosities.
