Goa flashes a '1,000 smiles'

entertainment Updated: Jan 01, 2011 01:30 IST

The government of Goa has officially endorsed a ‘1,000 smiles of Goa’ event, in which 10 budding photographers, mostly students, shoot for 10 straight hours across 10 different locations in the coastal state of Goa, capturing smiling faces of men, women and children. The ‘1,000 smiles of Goa’ is an initiative taken by three men from diverse backgrounds — Atmaram Deshpande, a police superintendent, Prasad Pankar, a fashion photographer, Chris da Gama, an advertising professional — and was launched by state tourism Minister Nilkant Halarnkar in Panaji.
