VASILIY KARAVAEV. ON ‘OTHER’ SIDE OF GOA – FROM LOCAL NEWSPAPER
…from Navhind Times:
How many realities exist in Goa? Does Goan “reality” exist like the famous Russian Doll? The Goa which Goans see and media reports is different than what the “others” see- mainly the foreign tourists and among them a new, dominant class of Slavic Russian tourists. Russia is not an ordinary country- it is a great land with harsh winter and of simple, hard working people which has produced some of the most powerful writers, philosophers and thinkers in modern history. Love of literature flows through the blood of every Russian.
