My usual routine when in Benaulim fishing village was to go on daily 6km walks to, from & south along the beach. However the President of India had taken up residence in a 5-star hotel about a kilometer along the beach … & the whole beach in front of the hotel was blocked by 2 military men with machine guns.
With my walk curtailed I returned back along the beach to Benaulim … when suddenly Santa appeared on the beach being harnessed to a parachute! The other end of the harness was attached to a speed boat … and with a roar of the motor Santa took off! It was fairly obvious that Santa was heading for the President’s hotel.
I wondered what might have been in Santa’s sack … while taking in the sunset.
