MEMORIES OF THE PAST....

BETIM-a village in goa




DRINK STALL AT BETIM

Goa is a coastal state having scenic lovely villages; BETIM a village in Goa is very special to us because my husband spent his early childhood in this village.



FERRY RIDES FROM BETIM

BETIM is a village, which is 15 mins by ferry from the capital city of Panaji in Goa. You see lots of hustle-bustle around the place where the ferry halts. A ferry is a small open boat, which carries passengers and vehicles from one bank to the other so as to avoid the road traffic. I have taken some snaps around this ferry point, which shows the simplicity of the people staying here and how they have tried to retain the old-world charm and serenity of the place.


POST OFFICE AT BETIM

In spite of development, people in such villages have stuck to their values and Indian culture. When you visit such places you see there is no outward display of great architecture or use of high-class materials you feel like you are living a life, which is pure and true with no false frills.
