What’s on in Goa (February 2009)

Fed up with the paucity of decent listings and hearing of events after they’re over, I’m making an attempt to catalogue details of events happening in Goa on a weekly monthly basis. If you have anything to add to this list, please get in touch!

For now, I’m listing events under various categories as they occur. Would a date-wise listing be better? Suggestions welcome.

Mark your calendars, people!
