Walking through green fields in Goa

Yesterday, we took a walk through the green fields of Taleigaon to learn how rice grows. Organised by Bookworm Goa, the walk was led by Yogita Mehra of Green Essentials. Yogita first explained the fascinating process of how rice grows – from seed to polished rice. We then went to a nearby field, rolled up our trouser legs and stepped into the soggy wet earth. It’s been a long time since we walked into fields heavy with freshly planted saplings and the evening was an experiment in sensory overload.

On the promenade, blue and yellow and white tiles lent an exotic flavour to the surroundings.

Goan houses are often awash with bright primary colours. Sunshine yellow, anyone?


Or perhaps a striking turquoise?



And here’s a monsoon staple – corn-on-the-cob toasted over a road-side flame, doused with spices and lime. Heaven in the rain.


Homegrown and organic veggies for sale by the roadside.


If you’re coming to Goa, check out events organised by Bookworm. There’s always something interesting happening!
