There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
Beautiful goa wah!!
Ask a Goan where he (or she!) is from and the name of the person’s ancestral village will automatically be mentioned. Goan’s have strong ties to their villages and continue to maintain their links with them. Because Goa is such a small place, Goans are never far away from their ancestral villages. Goan villages often have their own peculiar festivals and traditions that continue to be zealously preserved even today.
