vurda, i've seen the report in the Deccan Herald........they say the ban will start next season at Miramar beach, because they say it will cause chaos if we started the ban at a main beach like Calangute !!!...............Thats Goan logic for you.

I wonder how many police it would take to totally patrol the beaches? Or do you think the police will be accepting packets of fags as bribes?

They're discussing this over on the Facebook group too......Meet n greet in goa

Well as I stated on meet n greet on fb I don't smoke but think its ridiculous not allowing people to smoke on the beach. Whatever will they think of next. No sunbathing on the beach. Lol

But its ok for people to p**s on the beach and leave broken glass everywhere without fear of punishment. The useless twits they call police will have found another way of lining their pockets!

Tony they've got to keep the pristine ambiance of Goa upheld.

Or the next thing you know, you will see rubbish in the streets.!.
