Village Carrom, in Betqui, Goa.

It's nice to see some real gaming.

But Veena should have made the photographer tuck his shirt in better.   ;)

I used to be quite good at that game; unfortunately, when I returned to the UK nobody there knew anything about it, and no board or puck existed - not that I could see, at any rate, so my little light flickered and died all by itself. Ahhhh... such sorrow, so young.

Eric - Iíll let her know for future reference  :)

Rob - Carrom was once the preferred form of recreation during the days of especially heavy rain in Goa when you were confined indoors.

As you can guess, Rajan, it wasn't a whole heap more dry up in Ooty, but it was colder; I think we collected both monsoons!

There is a UK company ĎUbergamesí making this game in India and selling it in Europe.
So Rob, go for it.
