DEAR AUNTY,

I understand the Pablo Picasso monumental work on the Nazi bombing of a Spanish city was actually of Goan origin! Do you know which painting?

original goan haiku #74

DEAR AUNTY,

Goans are well-known for their interest in violin-playing! I heard that after Stradivarius, a Goan violin was invented with the most beautiful sound – would you know of this rare and priceless make of violins?

Manvin.
…………..

Dear Manvin:

Isn’t it obvious…Goan’arius!

DEAR AUNTY,

Where in “Bluebells of Scotland” does it show that the composer was actually from Goa?

Dear Laddie:

Opening lines! “Oh where, tell me where, Is your highland laddie…goan!”
