Try not bothering to criticise something posted eight months ago --- unless you have something useful to say!


Yes, this post is typical of the "helpfulness" of Nick-H.

My house seemed like an island of relative normality, in a sea of junkies, at that time. That was the main reason that I got out and returned to Europe. I had children to bring up.
From the late 70's I also found that it was a time when a lot of people from the west started coming to India/Goa with a different philosophy to Love Peace & Rock n' Roll.
Sadly more aggression, alcohol & violence

But then the late 80's were all Peace Love and Unity.

Thats because The Grateful Dead were out and Acid trance was in, this with a change in drug consumption from Brown to Ecstasy made all the difference.Anjuna was so smacked out in the late 70s and early 80s that you could have dropped an atomic bomb on the place and most of them wouldnt have woken up, just scratched and slipped into another dream state.

It depended on where you were. I was in Colva Beach Christmas/New Years '75 and there were about 10 people, only some ganja & feni. Very peaceful scene. Goa is not just Anjuna, it never was. It was easy to avoid the tripped out, smacked out types if that wasn't your scene.

En route through Turkey

DH, did you ever try to track down the lead in Bangalore?

Also, I guess you've heard enough about what happened afterwards not to need this, but did you ever try to find out about Dale's time in Turkey? In those days there were very few hangouts and one of them - the pudding shop - is still around. They might remember a 7-foot-tall Canadian.

I live in Istanbul, let me know if you want any questions asked.

Thumbs up An Engrossing drama with a hung climax?

Hi DH and all out there! I just joined IM today and was fortunate to come across this thread. Read the whole thread non-stop. It was enlightening in many ways. Not only about the 70s Goa, but also made me ponder about many nuances of human life and moments ( though this started as a personal story of DH, the thread eventually delved into many fascinating levels ) I do hope that DH has not lost interest in his search for Dale. It would be a huge disappointment for all of us. Especially considering all the efforts and inputs of so many wellwishers. And I believe that DH would personally feel his life would be incomplete if he peters out now. All the best DH. It has been four years now, but remember that four years is nothing.

Or even Anjuna, or maybe angina?

Happy New Year everyone.........

I've just been browsing this thread and wondered was anyone in Arambol in the late 70s? I have lost touch with everyone I ever met there and I spent quite a bit of my youth there!
Berni.

An option which could be there is that you can approach the local police station within whose jurisdiction you think that your father lastly lived or may be with the municipal authorities also as they also keep such records.

assuming someone will comment in this thread if there is any, but just giving it another bump to see if there is an ending, or perhaps another twist, to the story?

It's interesting old stuff, isn't it.

I get sometimes referred to by people who think I'll be able to dig up an old thread if there is one, really. But oh well.

Welome to IndiaMike. Do you have a personal interest, or just curious?
