Goa 24 hour sojorn

A day visit to Goa introduced me two new places. Marriott Hotel at Miramar and Sea pebbles . At Marriott Hotel, while having breakfast overlooking barges plying across Mandovi river, a man with white flag attached to wooden pole marched between tables. I tried hard to decipher his actions and decided to ask him. It seems white flag scares crow away. I must check this fact. But Goan crows were smart, they pounced on plates when this guy reached the other end of the table. Sea Pebbles is a lovely sea food joint hidden along the parking of Dona Paula. A climb and descend of few staircases lead to the backside of open space that is along the beach . Kingfisher beer in the company of Karaoke singer who sung some nice Kishor Kumar and beetles melodies was enjoyable.

I was pleased to read about the life imprisonment sentence given to Haldiram owner in Kolkatta for attempt to murder poor tea stall owner by hiring goons. This speaks highly of police officials, judicial and also politicians of Kolkatta city who didn't fall prey to lucrative offers that this rich man must have made to avoid getting trapped in the clutches of law. I hope he doesn't get acquitted in higher courts like it happened in case of Shibu Soren. A similar justice was meted out to Sarvana Bhawan Chennai owner. All is not bleak with India's judicial system.I am unhappy of giving Padma Sree award to Mr Sant Singh Chatwal who was chargesheeted by Govt of India for fraud and was even put behind the bar and now same Govt accord him the official govt honour.
