IT,S CARNIVAL TIME GOA
I am back again from a short hibernation. It’ s Carnival time in Goa. From 9th to the 12th of February, 2013, Goa will rock with colourful float parades in major towns like Panaji, Margao, Vasco and Mapuca. Besides there will be dances, musical shows, and lots of other entertainment programs to keep everryone busy and entertained.
Goa is the only place in India where Carnival is being celebrated on such a scale. The floats are being sponsored by the Goa Tourism Department. This Carnival is a legacy of the Portuguese who were ruling Goa from 1510 to 1961—- almost 450 years. I have made a special QSL card as a token of acknowledgement to operators who contact my station during these festive days.
