If one takes a drive from Surat to Kanyakumari along the west coast of India, the landscape is almost the same. There are seashores, swinging palm trees, rice fields, rivers and hills. PAO
The moment one enters Goa, even before you speak to anybody, the houses of Goa start speaking to you. The Goan Houses show Portuguese influence. However, it is a unique language of architecture developed in Goa. Each house displays characteristic windows, balcaos, verandahs, pillars and compound walls. The artist has created paintings of the houses, since the Goan house is an important aspect of Goan ethos.
