GOA

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A tiny emerald land on the west coast of India is situated between the borders of Maharastra and Karnataka.

Goa was under the rule of the Portuguese for over 450 years.

The territory of Goa, Daman & Diu was liberated from the Portuguese rule in the year 1961.

Goa attained statehood on 30th May, 1987.

A very striking feature of Goa is the harmonious relationship among various religious communities, who have lived together peacefully for generations.

Though a late entrant to the planning process, Goa has emerged as one of the most developed States in India.
 

The name conjures up images of sun-baked sands, heady feni, and palm fronds waving in a cool sea breeze. All that may sound a wee bit clichéd, but Goa definitely isn’t. One of India’s hottest destinations for well over two decades now, Goa was- and still is- where everybody goes to party. A sunkissed land dotted with coconut trees and rice fields; old Portuguese churches and the prettiest of beaches- where February means Carnival and every day is an occasion for celebration.

Goa’s beaches are where much of the action is; some of the best beaches in India, these are the major reason why Goa attracts so many thousands of tourists- Indian and foreign- every year. The state’s beaches stretch all along the coastline, from the northern border with Maharashtra right down to the south, where peaceful stretches like Palolem are a godsend for anybody looking for an escape from the crowds.

The three main areas where Goa’s best beaches are concentrated include Mapusa, Panaji and Margao. Along most of the major beaches are resorts, hotels, cottages, restaurants and souvenir shops by the dozen, and usually an interesting flea market as well. All of which means that you can get a fairly complete vacation- with accommodation, dining, entertainment and shopping- all on one beach. What more could one ask for?

Best time to visit
Goa is a year-round destination, but the best time to go is in winter, between late October and early April. The winter weather is balmy, the days are sunny and the nights cool, especially on the beach. The summers are very hot and humid and it rains heavily from June to August, making it unsafe to swim.

The carnival period in the month of February through to early March is another peak time, attracting a lot of tourists to Goa. It is a great season with parades, pageants and merrymaking late into the night.

Access
Goa is well connected to Mumbai and other major cities by air, rail, road and a limited catamaran service, the latter only from Mumbai. Dabolim Airport, 30 km from Panaji, is the only airport in the state, but it’s got plenty of flights coming from the rest of the country.

Goa is also well connected by train, with Margao being the main station for the Konkan Railway plying between Maharashtra and Karnataka. Trains come in from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Trivandrum and other major cities of the country. National Highways link Goa with other cities and there are regular overnight coaches and buses. Driving down from Mumbai is also a good idea, since its useful to have a vehicle in Goa.

The best way to get around Goa is to hire a vehicle, as public transport systems can be a bit unreliable: there are no metered taxis and the bus service is erratic. Riding pillion on motorcycle taxis is extremely popular and inexpensive. You can also rent cars or two-wheelers for the day.

Accommodation
Options for accommodation are virtually unlimited in Goa and you can find a room to fit any budget. There are luxury hotels in prime locations near the beach, holiday resorts, tourist bungalows, beach shacks, dormitories and paying guest accommodation with local families. Also available are hostel and dormitory style accommodation that is perfect for students and backpackers on tight budgets. All three areas- Margao, Mapusa and Panaji- have low-priced, state-run GTDC tourist hotels. Most tourists prefer to stay around the beaches in north or south Goa.

Book in advance during peak season, as accommodation can get very scarce at this time.

Mapusa
Panaji
Margao
 

MAPUSA
Mapusa, in the northernmost part of Goa, is the state’s main market town. The administrative capital of Bardez Taluka, Mapusa is 13 km south of Panaji.. The town's name, pronounced `Map-sa’, after the Konkani words for `measure’ and `fill’, is an indication of its commercial nature. Besides being a busy market town, Mapusa is conveniently close to some of Goa’s most popular beaches.

Calangute: About 8 km south from Mapusa, Calangute is Goa's most popular beach, a highly commercialised but sizzling beach that offers good sunbathing, passable swimming and the most delicious food along the coast. Though the beach itself is not spectacular, and the coarse golden sand drops steeply creating an undertow, there is something about Calangute that attracts the Indian tourist and Western sun-worshipper alike.

Baga: A happening beach 10 km west of Mapusa, crescent-shaped Baga is less crowded than Calangute, but comparatively safer for swimming. Baga has soft white sand and a green backdrop of paddy fields. Baga is popular for water sports - parasailing, jet skiing, body boarding and surfing, though the waves aren't good enough for the professional surfers. Another hit with tourists are the dolphin cruises on a boat out at sea, bringing you within touching distance of these smiling creatures. Baga's nightlife is more sophisticated than Calangute's, with music, dance and wine.

Anjuna: The "hip" beach that has lived up to its swinging reputation since the 70s, Anjuna has traditionally been a rave centre and attracts partygoers and backpackers to its famous beach parties, especially around the Christmas-New Year season. Anjuna's golden sands and tall coconut palms make the beachfront a pretty hangout place and the sea is safe for swimming.

Small Vagator and Big Vagator: A little ahead of Anjuna lie the two Vagators - the big and the small Vagators. Both are secluded, palm fringed, quiet places tucked away in the northernmost tip of Mapusa. Small Vagator is a small cove - its fine silver sands and rocky sea shore surrounded by black laterite cliffs.The main Vagator beach (Big Vagator) is overshadowed by the 500 year old Portuguese fortress of Chapora that sits atop a rocky outcrop.

Arambol: Way off to the north, near the border with Maharashtra, lies Arambol (also called Harmal), pretty but not overcrowded. Arambol’s stretches of soft white sand would be just what the doctor ordered for your peace of mind. It is also the paradise for the hippies, as there are regular "trance" parties and even "full moon" parties.

Also near the Maharashtra border is Querim beach (pronounced ‘Keri’) an idyllic beach but with barely any facilities or supplies available. Equally peaceful and bereft of logistics are Mandrem (just south of Arambol) and Morgim (Morji), on the Chapora estuary. Mandrem, a lonely stretch of white sandy beach with a couple of beach shacks, is frequented mostly by tourists who want to get a full body tan, away from prying eyes of interested locals.

At the foot of Fort Aguada lies the pretty palm-fringed Sinquerim beach, and near it Candolim beach, both popular with tourists.

PANAJI
Panaji, the capital of Goa, is a tiny city that packs in a large punch. The church on the main square, the Baroque architecture, pretty villas, cobbled streets and interesting buildings give Panaji a distinctly Portuguese ambience. The city lies along the left bank of the Mandovi River, and close at hand are a bunch of good beaches, perfect for lolling around and soaking up the sun.

Dona Paula: Dona Paula is a pretty and peaceful beach shaded by palms and casuarinas, 9 km southwest of Panaji. Dona Paula is quite a hotspot, not only for its beauty but also because of a romantic legend that gave the beach its name. Dona Paula de Menezes was a viceroy’s daughter who jumped off a cliff when refused permission to marry a local fisherman. The hapless maiden is said to be entombed at the nearby Raj Bhawan’s Cabo Chapel.

Dona Paula beach offers water sports facilities, especially water scootering.

Miramar: The beach closest to the capital Panaji (3 km), Miramar is conveniently located in the heart of the state capital which is also why it is rather crowded and often dirty, though you can watch some spectacular sunsets, as the sun goes down at the confluence of the River Mandovi and the Arabian Sea

Bambolim: 7 km from Panaji along the Panaji-Vasco road to the airport, Bambolim is a minor beach frequented more by the local populace rather than by tourists. Is an excellent destination for swimming, considered as the safest beach in Goa for swimming, no under currents at all on this beach. The beach is truly a paradise on earth.

Caranzalem: Though not very pretty, Caranzalem (between Miramar and Dona Paula) is quiet and safe for swimming. It has water scooters and other water sports facilities as there is no undercurrent.

Vaniguinim: The Vaniguinim beach overlooks the Mormugao Bay but is accessible only from the Cidade de Goa Hotel.

Bogmalo: Just 4 km from the airport is the small cove at Bogmalo, not easily accessible, and, therefore fairly empty. Bogmalo lies between Panaji and the port town of Vasco da Gama; it’s good for swimming, and not too crowded.

 

MARGAO

Margao, the capital of Salcete taluka and the chief town of South Goa, has a decidedly Portuguese flavour and an old world charm. It’s a vibrant cosmopolis with a migrant populace from Maharashtra and Karnataka, peppering the existing Konkanese and Portuguese cultures; and this is also where some of Goa’s top beaches are.

Colva: Colva beach, 6 km from Margao, has a throbbing nightlife but a somewhat downmarket ambience by day. Colva’s highly commercialised with resort complexes, large holiday crowds, trinket stalls, discos and restaurants, but a walk of a few hundred metres along the beach in either direction takes visitors to the quieter, more private spots. If one can get away from the crowded main beach, Colva is a great place to shack up. There’s good accommodation, great restaurants, the waterfront is clean and the water’s safe for swimming.

Benaulim: Benaulim lies right in the centre of Colva, 7 km west of Margao. Benaulim remained a sleepy hamlet for centuries, then woke up with quite a bang- and is today a popular tourist hotspot with a crop of luxury resorts, time-share apartments, guesthouses and moderately priced hotels. Dozens of restaurants and beach shacks dot the seafront, serving authentic Goan seafood besides a variety of other cuisines. Despite its popularity, Benaulim still has an air of tranquility: the beachfront is beautiful, with silver sands, shady palm trees and safe waters.

Varca: Varca is famous for its silver sands, one of the best beach in the south is today a popular tourist hotspot with a crop of luxury resorts, time-share apartments, guesthouses and moderately priced hotels. Dozens of restaurants and beach shacks dot the seafront, serving authentic Goan seafood besides a variety of other cuisines. Despite its popularity, Varca still has an air of tranquility: the beachfront is beautiful, with silver sands, shady palm trees and safe waters.

Mobor: Mobor is the spot where Colva ends and the River Assolna meets the sea, and the site of an exclusive luxury resort. The beach at Mobor lies in a sheltered cove overlooked by cliffs on one side - it makes for a picture perfect setting.

Majorda: Majorda lies 2 km north of Colva, and is a pretty beach dominated by a luxury resort, hotels, restaurants, shops, boutiques and the best European bakeries in Goa.

South of Margao lie a host of quieter, more isolated beaches; venture beyond Cape Rama to the peace and beauty of the beaches at Palolem and Galgibaga- perfect for a day away from the crowds of bathers flocking around the more touristy beaches.

Nearby Agonda and Rajbag beaches lack shelter from the sun, making them rather isolated and inconvenient.

  2. I met Kenneth when I was looking for a reliable partner in Goa a couple of years back. As a travel agent trying to get detailed info on the Goan resorts, i asked him how close is the beach from one of the resorts he was promoting. His answer was quick and witty “Varsha, if your guest jumps off the balcony from one of our seaview rooms, he will land in the sea…” It was hilarious. I thought very skeptically either this guy knows what he is talking about or trying to be funny and is trying to get the sale with his witty remarks. Well, he was right and he got the sale. After our first booking, when i checked with my guest to give me a feedback on Kenneth, and she said “Kenneth knows everything about Goa, he was quite helpful and he has a great sense of humour” ever since, we have been religiously using Kenneth for all our Goa requests. We know our guests are in safe hands with Kenneth. We don’t have to worry at all. I wish we had a Kenneth everywhere we send our guests for a holiday.
    Thanks Kenneth!

  12. Dear Kenneth,

    Thanx for all your help extended to us during our adventure tour to Goa.

    It was really a pleasure and a very memorable experience.

    The Island trips very truly exotic and adventorous in nature.

    It had a great feeling having lunch at the island. It was like we were the only people out there on the virgin islands and that whole thing was only made for us.

    Actually we are indeed so lucky to have found you.

    Otherwise, booking through different sources and they are not based in goa is a real pain.

    You really made our holiday.

    Thanx and regards from Trace.

Goa (गोवा) is India's smallest state in terms of area and the second smallest in terms of population after Sikkim. It is located on the west coast of India, in the region known as the Konkan, and is bounded by the state of Maharashtra to the north, and Karnataka to the east and south. The Arabian Sea makes up the state's west coast. Panjim is the state's capital, and Margao its largest town.
Portuguese merchants first landed in Goa in the 16th century but soon after, colonised it forcibly, persecuting Hindus and converting the majority of the locals to Christianity. However, not all were persecuted into Christianity, many were converted by choice because of missionaries like St. Francis of the Seven Seas, who is still honored by both present day Hindus as well as Christians. The Portuguese colony existed for about 450 years, until it was annexed as part of India in 1961.

Goa Gil : one of the pioneers of techno-tribal dance music and Goa trance
20 02 2007
Goa Gil (real name Gilbert Levey) is an American-born musician, DJ and party organizer. He is one of the founders of the goa trance and psytrance movement in electronic dance music.

Gil was born in 1951 and grew up in San Francisco, California. He witnessed the birth of the hippie movement and acid rock, and was involved with the freak collectives Family Dog and Sons of Champlon. Feeling that the San Francisco musical scene was falling apart, he took off in 1969, going first to Amsterdam and then to India, settling in the hippie mecca of Goa. Here he discovered the sadhus, wandering holy men living off the forest and covering themselves with ash and drinking the elixir of the gods. Gil became himself a Sadhu, Baba Mangalanand, in the order of the Juna Akhara.
During the early 1980s, many Goa hippies were becoming increasingly fascinated with early electronic music such as Kraftwerk. Gil and his friends soon gathered some equipment and started DJing and playing live music all night long on the Goa beaches. The mix of outdoor electronic dance parties with Eastern mystical and spiritual overtones came to define the aesthetic of the psytrance movement. For Gil, dance is an active form of meditation and the use of trance music is a way to “redefine the ancient tribal ritual for the 21st century”. During the 1990s, the aesthetic of the Goa trance movement spread by way of European and Israeli backpackers who attended parties in India. Nowadays, Gil is still based in Goa for several months of the year, and spends the rest of his time travelling and throwing parties, notably in Northern California.
Gil is married to Ariane MacAvoy, herself a child of French Goan “freaks”. Together they formed the band the Nommos with Peter Zigelmeier of Kode IV.

Sesa Goa: Mittal likely to clinch Mitsui stake in Sesa Goa
20 02 2007
Amidst speculation about who outbid whom in the final run for Sesa Goa, Arcelor Mittal is believed to have inched ahead of competition. The world’s largest steel maker and leading mining company Rio Tinto were touted to be the front-runners to acquire 51% stake in Sesa Goa, which was put on the block by its controlling shareholder, Japan’s Mitsui & Company. Until late Monday night, there was no confirmation from the Japanese major on who was the winner.

Six bids were submitted in the final round. JSW Steel, Sterlite, the AV Birla group and Australian iron ore company BHP Billiton are also in the fray.
Sources close to the deal claim that the bids are between Rs 2,100 and Rs 2,500 a share. However, the top three bidders have bid around Rs 2,500 a share. “There is absolutely no doubt that the valuation is very steep,” said an analyst. At this price, the enterprise value of Sesa Goa will be Rs 10,000 crore. It has a paid-up capital of Rs 39.36 crore, comprising 3.93 crore equity shares of Rs 10 each. “Iron ore prices have reached an all-time high and it is only natural that metal giants will look at acquiring mining assets. Companies need iron ore reserves at any cost, hence such high valuations,” the analyst said.
Sesa Goa has reserves of medium grade iron ore of over 150 million tonne located in Goa, Karnataka and Orissa. The company is currently exporting around 10 million tonne annually. Analysts said the high valuation was more on account of the prospective lease for the mines in Jharkhand. The iron ore in the eastern state is expected to be of very high quality.

The overwhelming response for Sesa Goa’s 51% stake, after the government allowed 100% FDI in mining, is also largely because foreign companies are looking at it as a vehicle to enter India, which has substantial iron ore reserves.
LN Mittal-controlled Arcelor Mittal is also eyeing other iron ore reserves of Mitsui elsewhere in the world. Mitsui has reserves in Australia and also owns 5% in Brazilian iron ore company CVRD. Arcelor Mittal announced plans to build a Rs 40,000-crore-plant in Orissa last month, and gaining control of Sesa Goa would obviously secure iron-ore supplies for the proposed project, said analysts.
The shares of Sesa Goa gained 56% since December 22, when reports of Mitsui’s plans to sell its entire stake in the company became public. It is also the biggest gainer on the Bombay Stock Exchange-100 index this year. The stock, however, was down 0.11% to close at Rs 1902 on the BSE on Monday.Courtesy: The Financial Express

India’s Ongoing Incentives to Develop Alternative Fuels : Cultivation of jatropha for biodiesel and dhaincha for biomass very promising
19 02 2007
Global warming is engulfing the biosphere at a rapid pace, setting in motion strange climatic changes. Humans are paying the price of messing with the environment over the centuries, while continuing to do so.
Pollution levels are at an all-time high in India’s capital, Delhi, with other metro regions like Mumbai and Calcutta vying for second place.
The increasing industrial and residential use of diesel generators is adding to the global warmup, even at the village level, while the search for alternative fuels continues unabated.

The cultivation of the jatropha plant in the western States of Goa and Maharashtra and dhaincha in the northeastern State of Bihar is increasingly being promoted as promising an alternative to diesel fuel in India.
In Goa, biodiesel derived from Jatropha curcas, locally known as “erond,” is becoming more widespread. Fr. Inacio Almeida, of Pilar, Goa, runs the Nature Farm of the Society of Pilar (or Society of the Missionaries of St. Francis Xavier-ed.) and is a leading popularizer of jatropha as a feedstock for the production of biodiesel. Jatropha until recently was routinely used as stumps for damming paddy fields and orchards.
“One liter of fuel can be extracted from 3 kg of jatropha seeds,” says Fr. Almeida. Among the developments he envisions is for “each village in Goa to have its own jatropha plantation and extraction machinery.”[*]
Generators using refined diesel have latterly been resorted to by householders, as well as small businesses, in Goa, in lieu of tapping into an increased central electrical generating capacity. This reliance is expected to change in the next few years, as jatropha biodiesel predominates.
Kanti Naik runs a small ice cream parlor in Assolna village in south Goa. As elsewhere in Goa the electrical power supply here is undependable, so he relies for backup power on a small, portable diesel generator worth INR 10,000 (US$228). Nearby, Alexander Barbosa also has recourse to a similar diesel generator for his cold-storage meat warehouse.
For these two businessmen the diesel generator has become a necessity, and increasing numbers of Goan householders have been using them to power their TV sets.
“For many villages it’s a case of either clean air or television,” says Nandita Mongia, chief of the U.N. Development Program (UNDP) Regional Energy Program for Asia and the Pacific.
Figures arrived at by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in New Delhi point to a mushrooming of the number of these diesel generators throughout India.
The diesel-powered generator has been a hit with people across the country. A liter of refined diesel costs INR 13 (US$.30) vs INR 50 (US$1.14) for gasoline.[**]
Pretty cheap, compared with Western countries, given that India is not a major producer of oil.
India imports most of its petroleum products, which are heavily subsidized before they reach the retail market, especially gasoline, diesel fuel and kerosene.
In neighboring Maharashtra the State government plans to allocate 30,000 hectares or 74,000 acres for jatropha cultivation to private sector business; for example, Reliance Industries is looking to the State to provide land for jatropha cultivation. As a public sector investment, the Maharashtra Government plans to cultivate jatropha on 60,000 hectares or 148,000 acres of State-owned land.[***]
In the eastern State of Bihar, the small village of Baharbari, sandwiched between Nepal and Bangladesh, has taken the lead in using another alternative fuel, dhaincha, a weed that provides a source of biomass, taking the place of wood from shrubs and trees. This is a project that has attracted World Bank support, as offering a cheaper source of electricity compared with diesel.
A challenge to be overcome in popularizing alternative energy sources is getting the message across to the masses, which requires a sustained campaign by local leaders acting through religious institutions and schools to educate the younger generation.
If dhaincha and jatropha meet even one percent of India’s growing fuel needs, then this will be a great achievement.
[*] Four final-year students of the Hirasugar Institute of Technology, Belgaum, in the southern State of Karnataka, have designed and fabricated an ingenious “Bio-Diesel Processor” for the extraction of biodiesel from jatropha seeds. The foursome of Vainath Patil, Vishwanath Khambi, Shridhar Patil and Mitra used the fuel to run the college water pump.
[**] Trial runs of jatropha biodiesel after etherification have shown it to be eco-friendly, giving an extra “mileage” of 2 km (1.25 miles) vs refined diesel.
[***] It costs at least INR 10 (US$.23) less than conventional fuel, and the emissions do not contain carbon monoxide.

India Looks to Host Formula One in 2010

Businessman Dominic Cabral from the Western Indian state of Goa is an avid motor sports fan, one among a growing legion of fans in India who follow the sport of auto racing with passion.
Once a year, Cabral travels to at least one race at which 28-year-old Narian Karthikeyan — the first Indian Formula One driver — is participating. Last year that took him to the Malaysian circuit. This year he plans to travel to Bahrain in April.

Cabral was not the only one in Malaysia waving the Indian tri-color flag. Around 500 Indians attended the race. The motor sport craze has come of age in India.
In 2010, Cabral and other Indian motor sports fans may be in for a treat closer to home.
No official declarations have been made yet, but four Indian states are in the running to get the green light from Formula One — Punjab, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Haryana.
Quite a few speculative reports have been appearing in Indian newspapers, but as one report pointed out, a venue close to the Indian capital of Delhi is likely to be chosen. In this scenario, Haryana and Delhi itself are close contenders.
India has a great fan following for this sport. If it does become a reality, it would provide yet another boost to the economy. As an example, the small country of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf region made a small investment $150 million in Formula One racing three years ago. Today, it is reaping huge returns.
The Bahrain International Circuit, a state-of-the-art Formula One race venue, took in $664 million over the last three years. Last year’s turnover alone stood at $394 million.
Many teams would like to compete in India’s booming market and the people at Formula One know it. No wonder Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One supreme, told the Bloomberg News Service: “India is a country that is probably going to grow quicker than China. We had to make sure we found the right place in India and we have.”
Where, exactly, the “right place’ was, Ecclestone did not disclose.
But is India ready to host Formula One racing?
In Delhi, a newly modernized international airport, good roads and a whole host of new hotels will help it score over rival cities.
Vicky Chandhok, chairman of corporation communications for the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India and Ecclestone’s informal adviser on an Indian Grand Prix, has said the selection will depend on the “funding criteria” of each of the interested states.
Formula One supreme Ecclestone has told potential investors that a multi-utility sports complex, which combines sport and fun, with the Formula One race being just an incidental activity, would be needed to make it successful.
Basic investment needs for Indian competitors is $80-100 million for the Formula One infrastructure and 600-650 acres of land to house the circuit, hotels and the multi-utility complex.

Ms. Kiran Bedi Concludes 2nd Year of ‘Ribandar Talks’ at Goa Institute of Management (GIM Goa)
19 02 2007
“One should always own one’s job,” said Ms. Kiran Bedi while delivering the concluding address of the 2nd year of ‘Ribandar Talks’. Elucidating the above statement, she recalled how she took a bold decision during her stint as SP, Traffic in Goa in 1983; she opened the Zuari Bridge to traffic without official sanction to ensure congestion-free movement for commuters.

Ms. Kiran Bedi is the humane and fearless icon who has come to be the most revered and idolized lady in the Indian Police Services. Ms. Kiran Bedi, who is currently serving as the Director General at the Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D), has recently been awarded the Suryadutta Award early this month. This visionary, with her holistic view on betterment of the country set up ‘Navjyoti’ and ‘India Vision Foundation’ a few years back showcasing her ever active involvement in community services.
Apart from being the first woman IPS officer and the recipient of innumerable awards like the Ramon Magsaysay Award and the FICCI Award, Ms. Bedi has been a path-breaker in prison reforms, community policing, crime prevention strategies, drug abuse treatment, spirituality in police training, and schooling of street children. She has come a long way from her well-known and talked about stint at the Tihar Jail to her recognition as the UN Civilian Police Advisor and Director General in Home Guard & Civil Defense.
She felt one should make the right decisions without fearing consequences. After playing her interview to ‘Hard Talk’ on BBC, she stressed on the importance of planning one’s career, self-introspection and always being aware of where one is headed. Further she said, one should constantly update and upgrade oneself with personal and professional training.
‘Ribandar Talks‘ is a series of lectures by eminent personalities initiated by the students of Goa Institute of Management. This has become an annual feature at GIM and is a platform for interaction between Industry and the Institute. It has helped in establishing a real time relationship between industry bigwigs and would be managers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow who would be leading the nation in its quest for sustainable development in all fields. This forum also helps the speakers to be exposed to questions from fresh minds of the student community, opening them to the diverse perspectives.
The list of the eminent personalities who addressed the students of GIM and the range of areas covered is impressive. On the one hand is Mr. J. P. Singh, Chief Secretary of Goa, who spoke about the ‘History of Steel Industry in India’, and on the other is Mr. Cajetan Vaz, National Creative Director, Everest Brand Solutions, who spoke about ‘Changes in Conventional Mass Communication Channels’.
Some of the other keynote speakers were Mr. Sandeep Dasgupta, CEO, Deutche MF, who gave a brief overview of the Indian Financial Sector. Mr. Amitabh Chaturvedi, Group President, Reliance Capital, who spoke on ‘Mergers and Acquisitions in the Indian Economy’, Mr. Proshanto Banerjee, Ex-CMD, GAIL, who described the ‘Evolution of Oil and Gas Industry Since Independence’, and Mr. Jatinder (Jeet) N. D. Gupta, University of Alabama, Huntsville, USA, who talked about the ‘Effectiveness of Information Technology and Supply Chain Management in Enhancing Business Competitiveness’.

Viva Carnival: Goa Carnival February 17 - 20, 2007
16 02 2007
Goa Carnival - February 17 - 20, 2007
Carnival in Goa is a non-stop 3-day festival of color, song and music, providing a healthy entertainment for all, young and old. The soothing climate, full of fun- ‘n’ -frolic, which the Carnival generates, is much longed for. It does not matter whether one enjoys or see others enjoying. There is enthusiasm and happiness all around.
Meaning Behind Carnival
The word ‘carnival’ is said to be derived from the Latin ‘Carne’, meaning meat, and ‘Vale’, which translates to ‘good-bye’. Some also link the word to ‘Carnislevamen’ or ‘the pleasures of meat’, focusing on the enjoyment of meat during the festivities, before the abstinence that follows during Lent.
Another hypothesis suggests that the word came from ‘Carrus Navalis’, the horse-drawn, boat-shaped carriage that was paraded during the Roman festival Saturnalia, in honor of Saturn. It carried men and women in fancy dresses, wearing masks, and singing obscene songs. It is possible that the present-day concept of a carnival emerged from this parade.

The Carnival in Goa-India is celebrated for three days preceding the Ash Wednesday. However, the float parade with King Momo begins on Saturday in Panjim (February 17, 2007), followed by parades in Margao, Vasco and Mapusa besides Calangute and Taleigao.
Origination Of The Festivity of Goa Carnival
The Goa Carnival is an integral part of the Portuguese heritage of the state, which was a dominion of Portugal till 1961. The carnival epitomizes the fun-loving culture that is characteristic of Goa. It was introduced by the erstwhile rulers as a rowdy celebration in which flour, eggs, oranges, lemons, mud, sand-filled gloves along with dirty water, various liquids and glue were aimed at passersby. Used pots, pans, and other kitchen utensils were also thrown out of windows. Perhaps this was done to discard the old and the dirty before the Lenten fast.

Goa Carnival
Fierce battles were waged in the streets, with plaster-of-Paris eggs, wax lemons, corncobs and beans. Blows were dealt out liberally, with brooms and wooden spoons. It was also an occasion for unchecked eating. People gorged on rich food at lavish feasts, and convents distributed cakes and pastries. Though celebrated for only three days, the preparations for the festival would take many days, and build up to a frenetic pitch by the eve of the carnival. The carnival in Goa still retains the core of the original. A King of Chaos is elected, called King “Momo”. He presides over the three-day festivities, which attract visitors from all over India and abroad.

A Musical Extravaganza at Goa Carnival
Street Plays, songs, dances, and unrehearsed farces mocking the establishment are performed before an enthusiastic, responsive audience. Floats depicting popular lullabies and nursery rhymes make a whimsical and colorful sight on the streets. In the three days of celebrations, cultural functions and competitions abound, and are judged by specially selected people. King Momo distributes the prizes to the winners.

An enthusiastic participant dressed like a traditional Goan toddy-tapper, not seen in this fashion nowadays.
The contestants wear colorful costumes and elaborate masks. Amidst the outrageous dresses seen on the street are some made of sheer, transparent polythene. In the fun-filled ambience, people smear color on each other, instead of the flour, eggs, fruit and water that used to be used in earlier times.

Goa Carnival
Everyone’s Invited for the Goa Carnival
In Goan villages, however, the festivities have a more indigenous flavor. Though celebrated by the Christian population of Goa, the carnival’s only relevance to Christianity is that it is celebrated before Lent. The festival today has no religious undertones and has come to be a cultural highlight of the state, rather than of the religion.
Traffic Arrangements for Panjim Goa Carnival
In exercise of the powers conferred under Section 115 of the Motor Vehicles Act 1988? Nikhil Kumar, North Goa District Magistrate, has hereby ordered the diversion of vehicular traffic on February 17 from 1 p.m., for organising King Momo’s float parade in view of Carnival festival in Panjim from New Patto Bridge (boat cruises jetty), to Campal football ground.
The diversion of traffic shall be as under:
The Carnival floats will be assembled infront of Old Secretariat. This floats will further proceed through D B Marg and will culminate at Parade Ground, opposite Bal Bhavan, Campal. During the float procession the out going traffic on reaching Campal Ganesh will take right to Fire Brigade junction proceed to St. Inez Junction to Caculo island and proceed further though M.G. Road to come upto behind Old Secretariat turn left and exit via New Patto Bridge (old lane PWD side) which is presently used for incomingtraffic. Similarly incoming traffic will come via Old Patto upto behind Old Secretariat and take left and move through Jose Falcao road and come upto Church Square and proceed further to their respective destination.
Though the vehicular traffic need not be disturbed till the commencement of the procession, it would be necessary to ensure that the traffic is channalised right from 12:00 noon on February 17 and should come on D B.Bandodkar Marg upto Hotel Mandovi and proceed towards behind the State Bank of India via Casa International behind Old Secretarial and on reaching Bandodkar statue will take left turn so as to proceed to their respective destination via New Patto Bridge (Old lane PWD side). No Vehicular traffic shall be allowed to enter the D. B. B. Marg once the Carnival procession starts which would be left free for the passage of :Camiva! Parade.
Further it is ordered that staff is posted and barricades are placed wherever necessary on. the outlet roads joining D.B.B. Marg from New Patto to Kala Academy. The circulation pattern of the vehicular traffic in the above circumstances will be that all incoming vehicular traffic entering Panaji will, be via Old Patto Bridge and outgoing will be through New Patto (Old Lane). The incoming heavy and commercial vehicles should be diverted at Old Patto Bridge so as to take Rue-de-Ourem road via Bhatulem from 2 p.m. till the Carnival float parade is over.

India wins Goa ODI
14 02 2007
India have beaten Sri Lanka by 5 wickets in the third one-dayer at Goa to level the 4-match series 1-1. Team India, needing 231 for a win, reached the target with more than 3 overs to spare.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni
But after Zaheer Khan did a splendid job to restrict the Lankans to just 230, India were off to a disappointing start losing early wickets. Virender Sehwag failed yet again, falling after making just 12 runs. Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh too departed cheaply, putting the Indians in a spot of bother.
However Sourav Ganguly was in fluent form yet again, narrowly missing a third successive fifty by 2 runs.
At that stage India were 94 for 4 with the ghosts of Rajkot set to haunt India yet again. But captan Rahul Dravid and M S Dhoni took control of the situation, adding 133 runs for the 5th wicket (Dhoni made an unbeaten 67). Rahul Dravid scored 66 - his career’s 77th One Day fifty, and along the road became the third Indian to get past 10,000 runs in one day cricket.

Congratulations to Shri Dayanand Narvekar, BCCI Vice President, President of GCA and Minister for Health and IT, Government of Goa, for the wonderful organisation of the Goa ODI.

Suggested Itineraries - Goa
12 02 2007
Goa is a former Portuguese colony currently a state in India’s West region. It is 3700 square kilometres in size and has a human population of approximately 1.4 million. Its east-west mix, beaches and syncretic culture is what attracts an officially-estimated two million visitors each year. Bulk of the visitors are from the rest of India, but the quarter-million from abroad have an influential role to play because of their spending capacity. Among the foreign visitors, and increasingly among a section of young visitors from India, Goa is currently renowned for its electronic music parties and its beaches. From 1510 until 1961 Goa was a Portuguese colony and many aspects of Portuguese culture and architecture can still be found. Panjim is the capital of Goa.
Understand Goa
The Goan population is a mixture of Hindus and Roman Catholics, the distribution being approximately 60% Hindu and 40% Christian. Despite this, there have been no communal clashes in the past and Goa is regarded as one of the most peaceful states in India
The best time of the year to visit Goa is mid-November to mid-February.
Getting into Goa
To Goa by Bus
There are several bus routes from various cities, but most traffic is from mainly Bombay and Pune, but with increasing demand from the south, there has been an increase in buses and trains from Bangalore and New Delhi.
To Goa by Train
Trains connect Goa from Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Mangalore, Ernakulam and Thiruvanantapuram (via Bangalore). There is a daily express train service from Delhi.
To Goa by Air
Some airlines fly directly to Dabolim Airport at Goa, but most international flights arrive via Mumbai.
Goa has daily flights to and from Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Pune (no flights return to Pune) and has flights twice a week to Chennai and Cochin. There are international flights to Kuwait and U.A.E twice a week and charter flights to U.K, Germany and Switzerland.
To Goa by Sea
Catamaran between Mumbai and Goa
An air-conditioned catamaran with places for 400 passengers runs between Mumbai and Goa. It leaves from the New Ferry Wharf / Bhaucha Dhakka in Mumbai.
Mumbai - Goa: depart Mumbai 22:30 Tue & Thu; arrive Panaji 06:00
Goa - Mumbai: depart Panaji 10:00 Mon + Wed + Fri + Sat + Sun; arrive Mumbai 17:30
Passengers are requested to board the ship 2 hours before departure. Economy: Rs. 1400; business: Rs. 1600 adult; special cabin for 5 people Rs.9000/- (all one way). Foreign tourists can pay in rupees on presentation of their currency exchange certificate.
Get around in Goa
Scooter / Biking in Goa
Renting a scooter or motorbike can be a nice experience. However, take care, since Goa’s roads can be dangerous to both experienced and inexperienced drivers.
Renting a scooter is way too easy, it will cost you anything between Rs 125 to 250 depending on the season and you may have to leave small amount as a security deposit. Also for a little more you can hire a more preferred “Enfield”, which is a favorite for travellers who often buy the bike if they plan to stay for longer periods of time. Also for the novice rider, you can hire a scooterette .
Bus travel in Goa
You can also use the local buses to travel to different beachs in Goa. Note that these buses are not owned by Goa municipal authorities and as such the fare can vary. A typical bus ride will cost anywhere from 4-6 rupees. Fares are not collected at the bus doors but rather after you after you entered and the bus has begun to move. It is prudent to ask your fellow passengers about the fare, since as a foreign tourist, the fare collectors will attempt to rip you off by demanding you pay 3-5 times to actual bus fare.
See the beauty of Goa
Goa is world famous for its beaches, its ancient temples and churches, and its Goan carnival
If naval aviation interests you, you might want to stop by the Naval Air Museum. This is behind the Dabolim Airport, and you will need to loop around the airport perimeter across the Dabolim Railway station to get there. There are seven outdoor exhibits and other memorabilia and models in a two storeyed building.

Things to do in Goa
Since Goa is still largely Catholic it has many Catholic holidays besides the Indian national holidays.
One of them, the Carnival though often mistaken for a ‘Catholic holiday’ is largely a Government sponsored affair of Floats and festivities.
There is a lot to do - for those who like their fun a little laid back
Relax at the Beaches. Goa has an almost unbroken 100 km coastline of beaches
Visit the venerable Catherals of a bygone era at Old Goa, which are still in remarkable good condition
Enjoy the cuisine at a range of resturants that cater to just about every palate.
Check out the several Discos and Pubs that have sprung up around Goa.
Try feni. It is a local specialty, an alcoholic drink made from cashew fruits.
Eating in Goa
Goa’s Food
The Goan staple diet consists of along with pickles and fried fish. This can be found on many of the beach shacks. The Goan cuisine is a blend of Portuguese and local flavours. Many dishes such as prawn balchao and Kingfish in Garlic have distinct Portuguese flavour.
Dishes such as Vindaloo and Xacuti (pronounced Cha’cuti) will be familiar from Indian restaurant menus, and are originally Goan dishes.

Most beaches have shacks that serve surprisingly delicious meals, specially sea-food and they’ll usually consult you to see how you like your food. Don’t miss the shack eating experience. You’ll want to go back and do it again. Most fancy hotels and restaurants serve terrible foods, it is best to eat at local places, ask a taxi driver where these would be and don’t let him take you to any fancy restaurants as they receive commission. For a taste of the local flavour with clean facilities but low prices go to Caji’s Place, Colva.
Drink in Goa

Goa/Psy Trance
9-Bar - Fantastic location nestled on the cliffs of Vagator beach. Things get going from around 6pm and close about 10pm. This is the place to go to find out about whats hot after 10pm.
Prim Rose - This is a small bar and restaurant in Little Vagator. Once the road to Vagator is taken (the first right from Anjuna) you are on the way to this psychedelic haven (ask the locals to take the crucial left from the main road). The place consists of a closed wall wherein the two story restaurant is located. To the other side of the road a few snooker tables are placed within a closed area. The roof of the ground floor is adorned with wierd psychedelic grafiti in pretty abstract colours. The upper story houses a huge plasma TV and some more snooker tables. Life starts here after 10 in the evening when a huge section of Goa’s foreign trippers and junkies get here to have a good time. Good food and wine is served (albeit a bit costly according to Indian standards, but cosidering the absolutely great music they play and the ambience, it’s worth it).
Hilltop
Bamboo Forrest
Paradiso
DiscoValley
Dolce Vita
There are many outdoor raves/doofs/parties during the peak season ie December - March
Sleep in Goa
A lot of great places to stay at but more often then not, you will find that all your searches result in websites that do your travel/accommodation bookings. While this is good, it can leave a holiday maker frustrated. In this section, we will add direct contacts of hotels, resorts etc., so that one can choose to use travel agents and/or call/email directly.
Apart from alcohol, which is very cheap in Goa, Goa is one of the more expensive states in India. Though for a foreign tourist it is still very cheap. In season which is from November to late March the prices are very high. Especially in December, 5 star hotel rates rates range from around Rs.20,000 - Rs.35,000 per night some rates go even higher. All touristic places charge more in the season.

Stay safe in Goa
Goa is a generally safe state, but as with any tourism dependent economy, it has its fair share of petty crime and touts.
Please remember these important points when you are visiting Goa:
Avoid sex with strangers, as AIDS is very prevalent.
Do not indulge in drugs, as police in Goa, are very strict and cannot be easily bribed.
Be-careful when wading at the beach as undercurrents can be very strong, many visitors have died.
Goans are very friendly and helpful, should you have any problems talk to the the nearest shop, restaurant or bystander.
Travel guides can be expensive and have been known to dupe foreign visitors. Try your hand at travelling alone, buy a map and hire a taxi or rent a bike.
Temperatures in Winter and Summer can be extreme, do not forget sunscreen.
Beware of hawkers who always mark up their goods, up to 300%.
This post is brought in the interest of Tourism in Goa by request of Goa Blog readers. A Wikitravel abstract.

Goa’s Transport: featuring a unique form of transport in Goa: the yellow-and-black two-wheeler motorcycle taxi PILOTS
11 02 2007
Goa’s main form of public transport largely consists of privately operated buses linking the major towns to rural areas.
Hired forms of transport include taxis, and, in urban areas, auto rickshaws.
A unique form of transport in Goa is the yellow-and-black two-wheeler Motorcycle taxi, operated by drivers who are locally called “pilots“. These vehicles transport a single pillion rider, at fares that are usually negotiated prior or after the journey.

A unique form of transport in Goa is the yellow-and-black two-wheeler Motorcycle taxi
In some places in Goa, there are river crossings which are serviced by the ferry boats, operated by the river navigation departments. These are generally FREE for passengers and two wheelers!
Goa has two rail lines – one run by the South Western Railway and the other by the Konkan Railway. Railways are only for inter state transport, there are no specific local trains like that of Mumbai.
Goa’s sole airport is the Dabolim Airport. In addition to regular flights, the airport handles a large number of chartered flights.
