This was a long time ago. And yet i remember it like it was yesterday. Quite a feat, all things considered. The waves that day seemed to have a life of their own; they even made the sand ripple. The sun was bright and the beer was cold. For a while there I had my shades on, but because sheer swag lost the battle to clear sight, i had propped it up on my table. And for some reason I decided to take a photo at that moment; of that spectacular Goan sun, the pulse of the waves and the amazing glistening white sand. I remember looking at it a few days after, and realising that all I saw in that frame, was happiness.
