The church  is one of the main churches of Panjim, Goa and is famous for its grand architecture and building. The church has witnessed many movies shot here. It was very peaceful inside and we liked the overall feel of the place.

River Cruise Point:

Next we took a drop at River Cruise Point around 5:30 pm . Everyone told me to experience this once in Goa, so we did and it was marvelous. 

Casino Point: 

It was something we had to visit for the sake of experience, as we have never been to any Casino and nor we ever gambled before. ( nor we intended to!)  But, yes the experience of Sitting in a Huge Cruise Boat with a Casino inside was an amazing experience. There are 2 prominent Casinos - Casino Royale and Deltin.

Casino Point

The whole day tour went beyond our expectations and wildest imagination. We highly recommend it.

Plan a Delhi Tour in October

Delhi is a good place to be in October this year. Diwali, the Festival of Lights, falls on the last weekend of the month. It is holiday season, having started with Dussehra and Durga Puja in the first week, schools are closed and people are in the mood for celebrations.

Rangoli of Lights

The date of Diwali changes each year as the day it is celebrated is calculated according to the position of the moon and the Hindu lunar calendar.This year, Diwali falls on Sunday October 30th.

The Diwali Celebrations kick off with Dhanteras on 28th October. It is a celebration dedicated to wealth. Lakshmi Puja is performed in the evening and people traditionally buy gold and silver and also new kitchen utensils on this day. Homes are cleaned and readied to welcome the Goddess of Wealth, the Goddess Lakshmi, into their homes. The entrance of the houses are decorated with flowers, diyas, rangolis and this year the Shubh Muhurat for Dhanteras Puja 2016 is 17:47 to 18:20 for duration of 33 minutes.


The next day is Choti Diwali (Little Diwali). Rangoli is created in doorways and courtyards, diyas are lit and people start bursting crackers from this day itself.

Diwali is celebrated all-over India.It is the ‘Festival of Lights’ and is celebrated joyously all-over the country. It is also the festival of wealth and prosperity. The legends behind the festival are many but common to all is the theme of Victory of Good over Evil. The most popular one is about the demon Narkasura who managed to acquire such awesome powers that he began to terrorize the three worlds. His defeat and death at the hands of Krishna is celebrated as Diwali.

The third and main day is Diwali. Diyas and candles are lit and fireworks are burst everywhere, giving Diwali its name the ‘Festival of Lights’. Families gather together and perform the Lakshmi Puja in the evening and exchange gifts and sweets.The Lakshmi-Ganesh puja is the most important ritual of the Diwali festival. This puja is performed in homes, shops and offices to seek the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi and the God Ganesha for wealth, prosperity and happiness. Many people start the new business year at Diwali.

Large firework displays are held which celebrate one of the legends of the ‘Ramayana’, the story of Rama and his wife Sita. The fireworks signify Rama’s return to his kingdom after being exiled for 14 years and defeating the evil demon King Ravana, who had kidnapped Sita.

Diwali is a celebration and explosion of light…colour… food and noise!

Leading up to Diwali there are fairs, food festivals, art exhibitions, cultural programmes, sightseeing tours happening in Delhi this October. Yesterday I explored Delhi via the HOHO Hop-on-Hop-off Bus Service. Today I am going to visit as many of these events as possible … it is a cultural bonanza I do not wish to miss! There is no better way to celebrate the festival than to be part of these wonderful gatherings that are full of light, happiness and fun. So, once again, carrying my camera and bottle of water I set off on my second day Tour of Delhi.  At this time of the year, I would recommend to dress in light comfortable clothes.

I have made a list of the events that seem the most attractive and ……The most convenient way aroundDelhi will be on the HOHO Hop-on-Hop-off Bus. These are a few that I plan to visit:
