  1. Goa chief minister, Manohar Parrikar, breathed his last on Sunday after a long battle against pancreatic cancer. The former defence minister was 63 and had been getting treatment for the ailment since last year.

From Prime Minister Narendra Modi, other prominent leaders to Bollywood celebrities; everyone is mourning his death. PM Modi called Parrikar "an unparalleled leader, a true patriot and exceptional administrator" and someone who was admired by all. Shri Manohar Parrikar was an unparalleled leader.

  2. If you've ever been lost in Goa while touring around and looking for Baga beach specifically, then well you're not the only one. Turns out it is a common phenomenon that many tourists keep driving around the area, ramming cars and bikes in tiny alleys, contributing to traffic jams but still find it difficult to reach Baga beach even after religiously following Google maps. © Instagram Since the local people understood the plight and realised it is more common that they thought, a good Samaritan decided to end the problem and a banner has now been put which warns tourists that they've been fooled and they shouldn't trust the map location for Baga beach! Hahaha. @googlemaps what's the route to Baga beach? ð Photo credits: masud. pic.twitter.com/0K2wK2TQD2 — Sumanth Raj Urs (@sumanthrajurs) February 16, 2019 This picture went viral soon after someone posted it on social media and people are cracking up over it now.

The next time you're stuck in Goa, look for these signs.
  3. Who said social initiatives and a good round of tipples cannot go hand-in-hand? Social initiatives work to make our surroundings better, whereas booze makes everything...erm...better! Period. Imagine all the possibilities we could explore if these two aspects came together and the end result was a win-win situation for us all? That would be a living dream and seems like someone's already decided to look into this and turn it into reality! A beach bar in Goa has come up with the perfect plan to get people to take care of the busy beaches which are corrupted by the callousness of the umpteen visitors, who stop by on a daily basis and leave the place littered. © Instagram According to a report by The Weather Channel India, 'Waste Bar' offers free beer in exchange for the waste collected from the beaches. The aim is to make people aware and accountable for their surroundings. The campaign was started by Noreen van Holstein in collaboration with Drishti Marine, a private beach management agency that also works with Goa tourism to provide damage control to the situation. The initiative was kick-started on 30th January at the Zanzibar shack located in the Baga village. Apart from all the good you do to the environment by participating in this initiative, it also allows you to get around the Rs. 2,000 drinking fine by collecting 10 beer bottle caps or 20 cigarette butts or 5 plastic straws. This waste-bar in Goa is a hang out of sorts, where one can exchange segregated garbage for a free beer. Read more: https://t.co/cFShDuCjyJ ð¸IANS pic.twitter.com/mo2myMXGr9 — The Weather Channel India (@weatherindia) February 4, 2019 Holstein also said that the concept of the waste bar isn't a new one. Such initiatives had already been tried and tested in the Netherlands, and the world has picked up on the idea over the years. She said, “People come to Goa for two things: beach and the bar. So let's give them what they come for – free drinks in exchange for garbage that they collect. This ensures that they become conscious of the waste that is there on the beach and that trash actually has value! They will leave Goa with a positive feeling and a clean beach.” Other beaches around Goa are also set to pick up the concept in the upcoming months, but Twitter already has a lot of good stuff to say about it. This idea has great potential. Should be applied beyond beaches and beyond Goa. @MCGM_BMC — Niks29 (@Niks292) February 4, 2019 Now that's something India really needs to learn and should be proud of. #Goa — Avani Shah (@avani_16) February 4, 2019 Tks, waste-bar. Good luckð I truly hope that this exercise spreads message of cleanliness and hygiene among all the visitors in Goa. May all of us learn to become responsible & self-disciplined citizens. Keep beaches clean & prevent trash from going into the beach....ð#Goa — Vandana (@CharouRathore) February 4, 2019 We hope to see some great changes in Goa, courtesy the Waste Bar.
  4. Imagine, you are chilling with your friends in Goa, and suddenly you come across a man who looks exactly like Rahul Gandhi; but without any security or politicians around him. No, you're not drunk and neither is he the Congress Chief's doppelganger. It is indeed Rahul Gandhi, who is currently in Goa, munching on delicious seafood, with his mother Sonia Gandhi by his side. © Instagram After attending the Republic Day celebrations in Delhi, Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi flew down to Goa for a three-day private trip. In fact, Rahul gave a pleasant surprise to the folks at South Goa's Fisherman's Wharf, when he suddenly arrived at the restaurant to have lunch with his mother. "When I asked for a photograph with him, he said he would oblige after he settles the bill," said Rachna Fernandes, a Goa-based dentist who even shared the picture on social media. Rachna told IANS that the two leaders had their lunch without any security guards around them. She posted the picture with the caption, "Awed by his charm and modesty." View this post on Instagram Awed by his charm and modesty ð #rahulgandhi A post shared by Rachna Fernandes (@rachna_the_dentist_fernandes) on Jan 27, 2019 at 5:26am PST Clearly impressed with the leader, Fernandes further added, "He is too nice to be in the bad, bad world of politics." Rahul Gandhi, who was wearing a blue T-shirt, and his mother later clicked selfies and pictures with the restaurant staff as well. Source: Times Now
  5. 2018 is on the verge of ending and if we look back, we can find some good and some bad memories collected in some corner of our mind. From breakups to getting a new job, from being single to getting hitched, from being sad to having the greatest day of our lives, there was something for everyone. via GIPHY Good or bad, the end of this year and the starting of the next should be celebrated no matter what. And when it comes to the New Year welcoming celebrations, the first place that pops in our mind is Goa. There's something about this place that makes people go wild! Sadly though, Goa has become a cliché. via GIPHY You can find every Tom-Dick-Harry making plans to go crazy and celebrate New Year's Eve in Goa. Consequently, the place has become too crowded. You won't be able to find a decent place to party where the crowd is limited and decent. To put it bluntly, Goa feels like Kumbh Mela on New Year's Eve. via GIPHY To solve your problem, here are five places which would kind of give you the feel of Goa but would be relatively less crowded: 1. Varkala, Thiruvananthapuram Situated in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, Varkala has one of the most beautiful beaches of India. It is clean, the water is blue, and not many tourists know about it, so it is less crowded. © GoIbibo This is the place for you if you want to get out of the hustle bustle of the city and just unwind. Plus, there are cliffs adjacent to beaches and a climb to the top would give you a mesmerising view! 2. Gokarna, Karnataka You can call this the mini Goa. Gokarna is around 190 km from Goa (to the South) and easily accessible by train or by road. If you need a quiet beach where you can enjoy with your friends, then this is the place for you. © Reddit It's a perfect destination for a solo-trip as well. It has quite a few beaches, so you would have options to set a bonfire and welcome the New Year. 3. Pondicherry As the French said, it's the paradise of India and it's probably what made the French East India Company set its headquarters here in 1674. Pondicherry is rife with beautiful French architecture and beaches that you would just love. © GoIbibo The food is amazing, beer is cheap, and the view is mesmerising. Pondicherry offers both, nature and feel of the city. It's the perfect place for people who are suffering from 'wanderlust.' 4. Tarkarli, Maharashtra This is the place for you if you want to party on 31st night and do water sports on 1st morning. Tarkarli has everything that Goa has, minus the crowd. You can drink chilled beer at shacks, watch the sunset on clean beaches, and can go for scuba diving or parasailing. © Wikipedia The place is a perfect weekend getaway when you're in the mood for some adventure. Just make sure you have some company, as it doesn't offer much to solo travellers. 5. Diu If you already don't know, then let me tell you. You can either plan for Daman or for Diu in a single trip. Because they're around 650 km apart. Of the two, Diu is a much better option. © Pinterest The beaches of Diu are comparatively cleaner and the city has more sightseeing to offer. There are the Nadia caves, churches, forts, and temples. And of course, beaches and cheap beer. You can spend your 31st December by exploring the city during the day and enjoying at the beach during the night. The place worth a visit at least once. So, which place will you be heading to?
  6. Like the famous Wallace Stevens' poem Disillusionment of Ten o' Clock, the tiny state of Goa tenders myriad different hues. So, what did I choose for my latest trip down the west coast? Biker. This choice offered me an insight into India's eccentric riding community, via Rider Mania, the world's largest gathering of Royal Enfield owners. The three-day festival rode the wave of the RE's brand new 650cc twins – Interceptor INT 650 and the Continental INT 650 – that were presented to India hours before the motorcycling extravaganza kicked off. I even hit tarmac astride both the bikes and they seemed nothing like any RE you would've ever ridden before. But more on that later. Royal Enfield/Alshaar I landed in Goa to dirt tracks and racing competitions on Day 1 of the festival to all sorts of Royal Enfields – from the custom vintage models to the more recent over-chromed 350s. There were vibrant custom helmet stalls, a testosterone-heavy beer drinking competition and a Maut ka Kuan that invoked a very familiar mela nostalgia from my childhood days growing up in small towns. Standing on one leg, a biker called Vinod Rawat stood out amidst this colourful bedlam. He lost the other limb when a truck ran him over at the tender age of six. Despite the efforts of doctors for the next six months, one of his legs had to be amputated owing to financial struggles. But a Mumbai hospital designed a special prosthetic leg for him when he was 27, and he has not looked back ever since. Royal Enfield/Alshaar He started the Convoy Control Club in 2010 for differently-abled riders, after facing rejection from other clubs due to his disability. Starting with three motorcyclists, the club now boasts of 120+ members. The youngest is 21 while the oldest are in their mid-50s. He took the stage to share his story at Rider Mania to an inquisitive audience. “In 2010, I was a part of Rider Mania and from then on I have always been a part of it,” he says. He has always ridden alone but receives whole-hearted backing from his family. “I have preferred Rider Mania to the other biking events because here you have everybody riding the Bullet. There is uniformity and everybody is on the same platform whereas other biker's music festivals have mixed bikes and hence there is a great disparity.” Royal Enfield/Alshaar His spirit reverberated in the beats of one of India's most promising young rappers Vivian Fernandes alias Divine, and his Gully Gang, on the main stage, later that night. “Sikander Vo Jo Jeeta Hain/Dilo Ko Beta Andar Se/Chhutkara Paoge Jhanjat Se/Mehnat Aur Thodi Mannat Se/Thakaan Aur Thodi Kismat Se/Par Moti Bante Kankad Se/Aarami Hogi Jannat Mein/Hum Pale Jaha Tu Matti Le/Iss Jungle Ki Kahani Mein,” he rapped the evening to a close. And after dark, what happens in Goa, stays in Goa. Royal Enfield/Alshaar More biker events awaited at the main arena on Day 2. But a quick meal at Sarah Todd's Antares later, I rode my Himalayan (borrowed from RE only for a day) to the RE Garage Café, in Baga. A friend had described the café's vibe to me as unruffled and laid-back. A mammoth industrial fan whirring overhead in the restaurant area was the epitome of this aura. Apart from an eatery, the café also has a merchandise and gear shop and more remarkably, a tiny motorcycle museum that houses prized machines, from the 1939 Flying Flea to the 1965 750cc Interceptor and more. The chief food curator Jamshed Madon is the face of this property that some Goans still refer to as the erstwhile J&A's Little Italy. And although I couldn't meet him on the day, his words from the launch, earlier this year, stayed with me. “It's a country- style kitchen for bikers and non-bikers alike. There's a lot of goodwill that has gone into the place. The goal is to reflect the local food and the food available on the road.” Royal Enfield/Alshaar The evening drew to a close with gigs from the likes of Su Real as I decided to spend it quietly by the Anjuna beach. But Is there ever a quiet evening when you're vacationing in Goa, I wonder. In the unexpected company of some old friends and a few new ones, the only colour I remember from the evening is black. How. Ever. I still woke up just in time for the big day. It was now time to ride the new motorcycles, in Goa's south-central village of Dona Paula. With the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) taking place in the background, it was me who felt like the real action hero as I first leaned into the corners first on the new Continental and then on the Interceptor. Having ridden the Himalayan over the weekend, these felt like massive upgrades. In fact, I'd even dare call them very very world-class. It wasn't very long ago that I was speeding on the latest Ducati Scrambler in Italy. Royal Enfield/Alshaar For starters, the Interceptor 650 features the styling ethos of a roadster in the classic mould, while the Continental GT is a cafe racer. Both the motorcycles use Royal Enfield's brand-new 648cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, which is surprisingly smooth and well-balanced (check out Kartik Singhee's Chaai ka cup test ICYMI ). Though unlike your usual REs, it also sounds brilliant thanks to the 270-degree firing order, even on the stock exhaust pipes. The new tubular double cradle frame, basic but competent suspension, excellent brakes and standard dual-channel ABS completes a rather thorough if basic package. And the big news is the incredible starting price of Rs 2.50 lakh for the Interceptor and Rs 2.65 lakh (both ex-showroom) for the Continental. There is no upside fork on the front nor is the engine liquid cooled. There aren't fancy electronics as well. But this duo will sell because it's RE and India loves it, just like Goa. It was my fifth trip to the Konkan state this year, and it remains to be a gift that keeps on giving. Still enough time for a sixth maybe? Royal Enfield/Alshaar
  7. Have you ever watched a movie and wondered how did the makers even come up with a concept that is so unique and different? 'Go Goa Gone' was one such example and was indeed a great watch. Watching it while you're seriously stoned makes the experience oh, so much better, wouldn't you agree? The horror-comedy starring Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das had every element that promised to take you on a hysterical ride. And adding more to the fun were Zombies. Well, the movie certainly exceeded expectations and now the makers are all set to make 'Go Goa Gone 2'. But this time Babaji ki booty has got a new quirky twist. TBH it's exciting. (c) Eros Now This time they won't be fighting Zombies but will have creatures from another planet coming to entertain us. It's the season of Aliens! “It's a really crazy fun script. Last time, we had zombies. This time, Saif and the gang will fight aliens. It's set in Manali and has been titled 'Go Goa Gone 2: Babaji Ki Booti'. We plan to begin the shoot sometime in the second quarter of 2019 because otherwise, Manali will be too cold for us to shoot in,” producer Dinesh Vijan told DNA. (c) Eros Now Talking about the film Saif Ali Khan told a leading daily, “We are doing 'Go Goa Gone 2'. It's an exciting idea and I've really liked it. I will return as Boris in the sequel. But this time, I'll be on a different mission. Raj and DK have found an interesting premise for the second instalment, which is in sync with the first part. They are currently writing the script. The other characters played by Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das will also be a part of it. We start filming next January.” (c) Eros Now There are a few changes in the movie this time; a female lead will be seen assisting Boris in his mission. The original cast will be reprising their roles and we will see two new additions in the movie. Get ready for another maddening dose of Babaji ki booty!
  8. Just a few months ago, we saw people dividing themselves between team Shilpa Shinde and team Hina Khan. Shilpa Shinde emerged victorious after surviving 'Bigg Boss 11' and the twelfth season is all set to hit the air in just two weeks. 'Bigg Boss' is without a doubt one of the most highly-watched reality shows in India and every year, the madness quotient goes a notch higher, making us furthermore excited. This year it's all about the vichtra jodis and we already told you who might be entering the house this season. © Voot Salman Khan will introduce us to 21 contestants who will be seen in jodis. However, there will be a few who will come as singles and will eventually be paired in the show. Vichitra jodis, this season of #BiggBoss with@beingSalmankhan. Coming soon on@colorstv #BB12 @nadiachauhan@iamappyfizz @oppomobileindia pic.twitter.com/yKqxm8nM1B — Raj Nayak (@rajcheerfull) August 25, 2018 But that's not it. This time, the makers are all set to add more buzz to the controversial show. The show launch will be held in Goa for 'Bigg Boss 12'. The invites are out and it says, “Kya hai yeh vichitra jodi ki kahani? Suniye host aur dost Salman Khan ki zabaani.” © Twitter We guess the invite hints at what the aura of the 'Bigg Boss' house will be like this time. There are several changes that the makers have made for this season. It is being said that Salman Khan will be seen grilling the contestants, not through the usual Me TV but something that looks like a classroom board. The show is all set to premiere on September 16, 2018, and we can't wait for our daily dose of cutthroat drama!
  9. Every group has two kinds of friends – one that makes plans and one that cancels it at the last minute, leading to the whole plan getting canceled. For some reason, a Goa trip plan always happens to be the one to bear the brunt of the latter. Well, it seems now most of us will shift to the latter group and start keeping Goa out of all vacation plans. Reason? Post August 15, you might end up paying a heavy fine for drinking alcohol at public places in Goa. Reportedly, chief minister Manohar Parrikar said that the fine for littering and carrying plastic bags will also go up from next month. © Pexels Addressing a gathering after opening the incubation centre at the Economic Development Corporation, he said “There is something called civic responsibility. The footpath which is developed along the river in Panaji city is being used by the people for drinking beer.” He further added, “There will be heavy fine for drinking in public from the next month. We will implement the decision from August 15 onwards”. © BCCL Although it is being said that the fine will be imposed from August 15, how much one might have to pay isn't mentioned. But, what we do know is that the fine of carrying plastic bags will be increased from Rs. 100 to Rs. 2500. “Every day we get the old bridge cleaned up. Every day I see some flowers being thrown on it. People think that they are doing great religious service by throwing flower in the water. You can throw flowers in water but not in plastic bags,” he further said. © Wikimedia This ban might come as a sudden shock to a lot of people, but what Parrikar said does make sense. We can't ruin a beautiful travel destination in the name of fun. Let us know what you think about this decision. Source: Hindustan Times
