Hi everyone,

This is my first thread in India Mike, though this site has been very useful for me for years.

I'm a 25 years old web and graphics designer and I work as freelancer. I have been kind of careless to my life before; and worked only when I needed money.

Problem is, I have run out of staying at Banaras (my home town) all life, at my native house. I am running out of inspiration for designing. I was in Margao, Palolem area in March and atmosphere was very inspiring for me over there. So, I have decided to stay there for several month and continue my freelance web/graphics work.

Ok, enough of my personal story, and back to the point. I talked to local people and they told me how horrible monsoon can be. I like rain but I heard there are horrible power cuts in the monsoon season, specially outside city areas (at the villages near beaches as well). I need my laptop running to work and with too much power cuts, it would be hard to work.

Are there really horrible power cuts? I mean, one guy said there are power cuts for 2-3 days straight sometimes.

And how is the condition in neighbouring areas of Margao city?




I'm moving there with a friend probably, and hope simple rooms/apartment won't be very costly. Local people said I would be able to get an ok place to stay for Rs 5000-6000 per month.

There are frequent power cuts in this area, too. But more important for you: reliable internet connection, I guess. Check this before you take a decision (there are some threads in the Goa subforum). Just consider: Goa is still a rural area.

Hi Federica, thank you very much for the reply.

I was at Palolem in March. I saw Reliance was working very good over there. Some guy told me that Photon Plus worked well too. I had my smartphone with Airtel, and it's 3G worked well. So I guess internet would be fine.

I'm considering Benaulim also. It's close to Margao city. And BSNL Wimax works there, so may be my Wimax device would work over there.

I live at a place where we have power cuts daily. In monsoon, it get more frequent.
