My Thoughts on Postcards from Goa
Postcards from Goa evokes the feelings one experiences when visiting Goa, India, with its charm, lush greenery, spice plantations, waterfalls, and magnificent beaches. It covers two time periods in recent history. First, 1945, when Portugal still ruled over India, and secondly 1998, when Goa, although no longer Portugal’s domain, had, and still has today, retained its Portuguese influence. This is especially true in the section of Panjim known as Fontainhas or the Latin Quarter, resembling Lisbon, its sister city. It possesses a unique culture, filled with music, including the famous Portuguese fados, the aromas of vavo’s cooking, the colourfully painted houses which line the narrow streets, and the crafted azulezos; all melded together with the music, food, and culture of India, making it a feast for the senses.
