Goa Trip

Last weekend,I had an wonderful trip with my friends and colleagues and this is my first longest trip too.I was excited so much that two day trip is planned to Goa,”India’s foreign Country”.More over everyone is allowed to bring their family and friends.I brought my friends and more over they are very much eager in the trip.When planned to go for the trip,I had so many questions.I was afraid whether my friends will be able to get along with my colleagues or not?What if our parents not allow to go?What if it continuously rains in those two days?What if it exceeds my budget?In simple way,the answer is,”All were fine”.Here are some of my random memories in Goa

St.Francis Xavier Church

St.Francis Xavier Church

Saint Francis Church is considered as a world heritage site. The basilica holds the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier,it is around 500 years old.The body of St. Francis Xavier is kept in a well-decorated casket, which can be seen in the photographs below.When I was hearing that it is the original 500 year old human body,I was not able to believe it suddenly.I was again and again asking,”Is it true?”.

This is the resort we were staying in Goa which is located in the walking distance of beaches.The wooden style room makes remind kerala,India.

I liked the Candolim beach out of other beaches we visited even though it was heavily raining and the tides were more that day.There were no other persons other than our team.It was extremely wonderful visiting the beach early in the morning.

It is a must thing to take a ride in River Cruise for every tourist.We can sit,enjoy the dance performance by artists.Dance floor is given to everyone who is riding on the top of the cruise.Yes,Of course.We had given a chance to forget ourselves and enjoy for few minutes.

Instead of getting into water and playing in the beach,I was having ice cream in that rain,doing sand art in the beach with my friends.Later I was pulled into the water by my colleagues.

This is an unforgettable and successful trip in my life.We had so much fun in knowing each other whereas I came to know more about my friends and colleagues.Beaches,tattoo parlors,Resorts,windy and chill Climate are still in my eyes.Thanks to my friends,parents,people in Goa and colleagues for making this memorable moments.

What you see is what you get....... birds, animals, and all sorts of things, but remember; Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don't strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt. .

Photographs from my world.

Into Dawn

Brave in the face of night; Afraid to face the sunrise.


Art is our home. This door is open, always, to all, and yet permits not the entry of draft or rain. The doused may find solace, and repose, in the warmth of this hearth. For the sparks of these words - the spectres conjured by its incandescence - are a family whose love is unconditional, and will ever blaze, kindling within us the faith to weather these tempests. The ashes may then be scattered upon the winds - to ignite the lost, and unify our souls as one, in unquenched illumination; to be the light which guides us home, through the darkest of eclipse.
