No person is born in this world with perfection. We all lack in some way or the other. That is the way Our Creator molded us with imperfections that we need to overcome and live it through our journey of life. Keeping this in mind one must understand that the differently abled people are not a burden to society or need your empathy. But they are a God-sent with special abilities and know to live a life fulfilling and integrate themselves well into the society.

The private bus operators in Goa does not let go any single opportunity of fleecing the customers by overcharging them. This happens with each and every private operator who does not believe in issuing the tickets for the travel related services. Based on the government directives the Bus operators regardless of their routes should issue a ticket to the passengers but this seldom happens in Goa. According to the new development, the private bus plying on the city had made the good use of an opportunity of diversion due to the carnival floats in Panaji by fleecing the passengers to the core.
Goa was ruled by the Portuguese for over four centuries and as a result of that, the custom and culture of this tiny state has the deep impact of western influence.

Goa is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the world, and it is also one of the tiniest states of India, which has an influence of western culture due to the 450 long Portuguese reign. Wearing the Bikinis (Beachwear) does not amount to any restrictions in Goa, and it is also one of the top Bikini Beach Destinations In India. The reason behind this is, unlike the other beaches in India, Goa give the complete freedom to the tourists to wear Bikinis, which is an ideal beachwear, and that too without heads turning at you. Although the bikinis are majorly used by the foreigners, things have started changing, and now even the Indians feels free to wear Bikinis on the Goan beaches.
Why do we travel? We travel to explore, to learn new cultures and more importantly make new memories, and not just document every move we make, by clicking selfies and posting them online, on the various social media platforms we are connected to. Nowadays, people travel to feed their narcissistic self. Somewhere amidst the collision of widening global curiosity, runaway self-absorption and increasingly un-putdownable technology lurk a sense, that travel is losing its capacity to make us wonder. We often do the routine because well, it is a trend to be followed, right? Would you not like to be a trend setter instead of a follower? Here is a guide to travel like Goan, to get a real taste of Goa for what it really has to offer.
