And later the Instagram era arrived and with it the ‘bucket list’ savages.

I had once pitched the idea of designating Canacona a protected State Park to the then-Chief Minister of Goa but the IIT-miseducated fellow was uninterested. On the other hand, if I had proposed something involving steel & concrete…

Monsoon is a glorious experience in Canacona. Be sure to watch the video short below.
