NIGHT MARKET ON ARAMBOL BEACH IN GOA (INDIA)
The highlight of Arambol is the sandy beach surrounded by coconut trees and other tropical plants by the Indian Ocean.
Arambol is a paradise for hippies and whoever loves freedom. On the beach, people from all over the world and all walks of life enjoy swimming, playing badminton, doing yoga and exercise, playing the drum and other musical instruments, and dancing to the sound of the drums.
At sunset, knick-knacks vendors, tarot cards readers, someone who gives a special massage on the back, fortune tellers, healers and so on, set their cloth on the beach and try to sell their things.
Seeing the long line of vendors, I wanted to mingle with them and laid my cloth on the sand as well.
I displayed the books I had written. Even though I didn’t sell any book, joining the other vendors was an amazing experience for me. From my position on the sand I was able to see many kinds of people passing by, and above all, I admired the unique sunset of Arambol which marks the passing of time and of our life like a tick of a clock.
