People of Goa

Each time Goa changed rulers, fresh new blood was infused into its society. So apart from the indigenous Goans, the Konkan and Maharashtrians who lived in this coastal region as far back as memory goes, there were Goans of mixed parentage too. The Portuguese married and started a new line as did some of the Muslim invaders. But whatever their origins, Goans are big-hearted, non interfering and tolerant.

Susegado’ – laid-back or chilled out is how one would describe the typical Goan. The people of Goa are open and fun loving, they have music coursing through their veins, and are ever ready to break into song and dance. Virtually every restaurant/ bar/ café boasts a live band, even if it’s no more than a single Spanish guitar! Their laid-back lifestyle is truly enviable. Where else, but in Goa, would you find motorcycle cabs? Or have the fine tradition of a post-lunch siesta that ensures everyone from shopkeepers to vacationers to street dogs curl up for a postprandial snooze.
