theres plenty of stuff around. loads of underground shisha places around Mumbai and a couple of good shisha places in Anjuna Goa. Cant remeber the names though, just found it while on the moped.

you can buy stuff reasonably cheaply, but its not as cheap as you'd expect compared to toher indian prices, and i didnt buy anyting as i had anohter 8 months of travel.

shisha places (the legal ones) always seem to sell shisha and hookahs. never saw any in the illegal ones.

Goa is a great city with the best food and drink in the country, great architecture and a lovely climate. In short it's a great place to visit. All of these things (save the climate) are due in large part to the Portuguese influence and Goa's role a trade hub.

In terms of tobacco in India you can get tombac, jurak as well as moassel from literally hundreds of brands that you can't get in the West. Some of the better brands are Bajaj ( a nice & mellow modern type spiced moassel), Qehwa ( great fruit flavoured moassels), Sufia Jurak (a nice ranged of spiced juraks with very low nicotine), Desi Merli is amazing. A great line of fruit and spice based moassels is made AJP but favorites are: Abu Sheesha, Abu Itrah & Al Khaas as these have very high quality tobacco and amazingly good spiced essences.
