as you can see, today I am in a chilled out, vacation zone. Yes!! We will be visiting the fun capital of India, in today's episode of Incredible India. This name of this state consists of two opposite words.. Go & AAAA (laughs) .. ha ha just kidding. So are you ready to visit GOA!!!
Goa is the smallest Indian State .. which is located in the coastal region of Western India. The capital of Goa is Panaji and the religion distribution is 66% Hindus, 25% Christians, 8% Muslims and other religions. Unlike the other Indian States, Goa was ruled by the Portuguese till 1961 and you would be surprised to know that this state was finally formed in the year 1987
Another fun fact about Goa is that.. this is the richest state of India. But according to me .. this is the happiest state of India..because anyone who visits this place gets happy..isn't it!!
The main Industry of Goa is Tourism. Besides, mining, fishing, chemical & fertilizer, restaurant & brewery are the main source of income for people. Goa is also the only state which has 2 official languages, Konkani & Marathi.
Goa's seven major rivers are Zuari, Mandovi, Terekhol, Chapora, Galgibag, Kumbarjua canal, Talpona and the Sal. The wildlife of Goa boasts of a long list of resident and migratory birds like Kingfisher ..aaa the bird Kingfisher.. Herons, Kite, Sea Eagle, Koel, Pallas’s gull and many more. Besides, Gaurs (Indian bison), Porcupines, wild boar, Pangolin (scaly anteater), Leopard, Langur monkeys & Crocodiles are found here in abundance. The main tourist attractions (pauses)..It’s a long list …are…(here we go) Dudhsagar Falls, Basilica of Bom Jesus, Fort Aguada, Calangute Beach, Pilar monastery, Tiracol & Chapora forts, Shanta Durga temple, Mangueshi temple, Mahalasa temple, Naval Aviation Museum, National Institute of Oceanography, Goa Science center, Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary, Molem Wildlife Sanctuary, Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, Madei Wildlife Sanctuary, Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary, and Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary (Phewww)..No doubt tourism is the main industry here!! Ha ha
The list of Goan cuisine is also a long one..the most famous ones are.. Xacuti, Sarapatel, Vindaloo, Shrimp curry, Patoleo, Crab curry, Chicken Cafreal, Sana and Fish Ambotik. I am already hungry!!
The Goan Music is famous all over the world and the famous dance forms are Dekhnni, Fugdi, Corridinho while the famous music forms are Mando & Fado. Konkani Film industry & Theatre is also quite famous.
The eminent personalities of Goa are Kartika Rane, Varsha Usgaonkar, Subodh Kerkar, Remo Fernandes, Kishori Amonkar, Hema Sardesai to name a few.
It's suggested that November to February is the best time to visit Goa..but according to me ..Goa is fun in all the seasons..even the rains
