Well, our best laid plans to have the monthly scheduled quiz this Sunday at Sunil's have been ganged agley, as aft happens. Or is it afted agley? Never mind, you get the drift. This Sunday the SEQC will hold a quiz as part of the 'Picnic On The Beach', an event being held to regain public control of Vainguinim Beach at Dona Paula. For those who came in late, here's what its all about. Once upon a time Vainguinim Beach was your typical idyllic Goan village beach. Then one day, along came Fomento Resorts and built the Cidade De Goa, blocking public access to a publicly-owned beach. Many years, court cases and subterfuges later, it is time for the people to reclaim Vainguinim Beach right under the very noses of Fomento Resorts.
The Tere Mere Beach Mein Quiz
Date: 19th April 2009
Time: 5 pm
Flavour: General, but 'People's Movements' will be an underlying theme.
Venue: Vainguinim Beach, Dona Paula
How To Get There: You ought to be able to get to Cidade De Goa without any difficulty, I'm assuming. If you don't know it, ask for directions when you get to Dona Paula, it is a landmark in the area. Now I don't know which is the 'official' public access, but if you walk across their lobby and pool area, and you'll find yourself on the beach. Once you're there, and have successfully waded past the musicians, activists and other assorted do-gooders, find out where the quiz is happening.
