Sotve ratrik Noxibant Nirmilole

Sotve ratrik

A classic Goan konkani song that emphasizes, that Our marriages are predestined. That on the seventh Night, God had written in his Marriage book, since the beginning of time, much before, we sign the marriage register in the Church on that blissful day. Sotve ratrik Noxibant Nirmilole. Credit: Venus Mascarenhas
