It looks like Goa is serving it’s sentence for being the adulterous party zone of India since decades. It’s constantly in the news for some new ban or the other that is being implemented onto the Beachy territory. First festivals like Sunburn and Supersonic were banned from being held there, then rebel parties joined hands to end all dance music scenes in Goa, and eventually they wanted to ban all late night parties completely.
The latest restriction that is being implemented is drinking at the beaches and other public places. Goa is quite popular for it’s shacks and many tourists linger on the beach till late at night, drinking wherever they please.
Superintendent of Police (North Goa) Karthik Kashyap was given instructions to arrest people found drinking in the open. This was the result of a meeting between the general public including representatives from the tourism sector and police officials as well.
“Kashyap called upon the general public to inform the police about such incidents so that action can be taken against the offenders,” said a statement issued by the police department.
It really seems like surely but slowly, the Goa that we’ve known and loved, is coming to an end.
