  • Goa to host Fashion Week

The Fashion Week regularly attracts thousands of people including corporate and showbiz celebrities, international and national fashion buyers, tourists and other fashion lovers.

  • Saved from Auctioneer's Hammer
    Two vintage cars that transported governors across Goa for several decades have been saved from the auctioneer's hammer after Governor Kedar Nath Sahani showed keen interest in retaining the cars. The black-coloured vehicles Mercedes Benz and Cadillac--which were imported by the Portuguese from Germany and the USA respectively in 1959, were due to be auctioned off, apparently after several governors found that they were just ornaments in the Raj Bhavan garage. But now the Mercedes Benz will be sent to the Goa state museum while the Cadillac will be used on ceremonial occasions. (GT)
