 Goa is  a resort state in India, with an interesting and fascinating  history. Through its long arc of history it has been under influence and control of various powers, principalities, empires  and from 1510 under European power and this led to an amalgam of culture, songs, music and dances.   

It reflects in its architecture of its Churches, temples, homes, villas and cottages   which permeates tranquil ambience to the place which in turn has attracted millions of tourists both foreign and domestic.

This rich historic tapestry of ebb and flow sought to mold this  amalgam into uniqueness of identity  keeping its deep seated  roots intertwined with various races and culture which swept on its shores and ports through its long coast line hugging the Arabian Sea adorned with  numerous exotic beaches and its hinterland, a cascade of mountain range, The Sahyadri, with a gift of necklace of waterfall for Goa, The Dudhsagar.  

The Innate pioneering spirit of its people were never to be enslaved by the past or shackled by its traditions but free to evolve and experiment and form a new tapestry its own, more harmonious and endearing than before which I would like to share with you-- its unique culture and its diadem of manifestation in songs, dances and its ever evolving customs, traditions,, architecture and culinary delights  thanks for dropping by...
