Californiangoans wishes one and all a happy and prosperous new year.
Charles Lamb said that "New Year's Day is every man's birthday".
So let's forget what negative things happened in the past and move on to a brand new year full of positive attitude as if it were a new life.

Look forward to our Californian Goan Calender which will be for sale soon.
