Holiday guide to Goa: the best beaches, hotels and restaurants 31.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

A break in Goa can be much more than just a holiday on beautiful beaches: the Indian state has a fast-developing food and drink scene that embraces local and international flavours, as well as stylish modern hotels and ancient traditions
Inland Goa: an alternative to beach-side culture

Though it has changed hugely over the last couple of decades, Goa still has much to offer, especially for those in need of a blast of sunshine at this time of year. The hippy days are over, but Goa has evolved, so while Anjuna and Vagator beaches join Calangute in the file marked “overcrowded”, a heavenly relaxed beach vibe can still be found elsewhere: on the sands of Ashvem-Mandrem, for example, and in the bays and beaches of the far south.

Pramod Muthalik denied permission to visit Goa 27.1.2015 DNA: India
 The state administration on Tuesday denied Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik permission to enter the North District of Goa. Collector Nila Mohanan relied on a report submitted by the police which said that with Panaji Assembly by-election coming up, Muthalik's visit might lead to a law and order situation and communal tension. Muthalik last week had sought permission to visit the state for ten days. At present he has been prohibited from entering the state. He had announced last year that he would be establishing a unit of his outfit in Goa, and it would make people aware about dangers of "pub culture" in the state. According to his present application, filed by his lawyer Rajesh Takbhate, Muthalik wanted to visit temples and ashrams in Goa and would not make speeches or take part in public functions. Takbhate had also said that denial of permission would be a violation of his client's fundamental rights. Ram Sene, a Hindu right-wing organisation, became infamous after an attack on a Mangalore pub in ...

Multi-hued images of India's rich cultural diversity and military might as well as achievements in diverse fields unfolded on Monday at the 66th Republic Day parade, which had a US President--Barack Obama--as the Chief Guest for the first time.
