Thanks Joe for your pics, videos and all the efforts you take to keep us
informed. Once in a while you need to be reminded that we continue to be
appreciative though you rarely see that mentioned.

Present day Goans seem to be dressing like Potekars. I remember when
services, especially at Margao Churches, and specially on feast days used to
be a sight to behold. The men were in regulation suits and the ladies wore
magnificent dresses and other accessories. Hats, gloves and stockings were
not uncommon. They did it out of respect for the Big Guy, but that didn't
stop me from admiring them. We are after all talking about Margao, once upon
a time the jewel in the Salcete Crown. Not only the aristocratic Modgonvcars
and Karns came bedecked, but also the prominent families from surrounding
villages, irrespective of caste.

I know times have changed, but it is ridiculous to see only the feast band
dressed formally and in style. And this is December, to boot. It can't be
that hot to be carelessly casual on a major feast day I think. And that
coming from a Bardezcar who is the epitome of informality - usually.

Please come to Goa and witness it for yourself whether it is hot or
cold. Today, many people are health-conscious - they would rather wear
casual clothes than a suit and get suffocated! No wonder, we hear
suit-wearing men complain every now and then in the "festachi feri"
(feast fair):

"Xi, kitem gorom zata re - ghamanche lott gelet; sutt bhizon sarkem
thapo zalam!" (It's so hot that I am sweating like a pig; my suit is
completely wet!) What else do you expect when you wear a suit in hot
weather!

There used to be a dress code for occasions but it is dying out very
fast.. These days, highly educated males wear casual dress even at big
functions, including nuptial ceremonies, feast mass, Christmas, New
Year, Easter, etc. and the least educated are seen with suits on! Does
that make them more educated than the ones wearing casual wear?

Here is another example: People who are well read mostly fail to carry a
pen with them but a person who can barely write his name never fails to
carry a pen with him. Does that determine his level of education?

There was a time organizers of big dances in Goa emphasized on a dress
code but these days they don't because they do not wish to limit the
entry to 'formally dressed crowd only.'

During colonial times, almost every grown up male, however poor he was,
had a suit, which he got made at his wedding. He wore that suit for all
occasions, including funerals. Over the years it came to be known as
"Sonsticho fato or suit" (suit of generations) because it would last
from his wedding to his children's wedding(s) and finally he would be
buried with it. That generation is long gone and ours will follow suit.
We have to move with the times!

COMMENT : My dear Domnic, you are confusing
literacy with education. Education means Knowledge included, but mainly how to
behave, manners, dressing up, what not to do and courtesy in presence of society.

Organizers of big Dances are business oriented.
Try to get inside a Medical Ball with informal clothes on. (i.e. I presume it is
not become commercial yet.)

And lastly, moving with the times actually
means improving on your education, or do you mean degeneration?

Please come to Goa and witness it for yourself whether it is hot or
cold. Today, many people are health-conscious - they would rather wear
casual clothes than a suit and get suffocated! No wonder, we hear
suit-wearing men complain every now and then in the "festachi feri"
(feast fair):

"Xi, kitem gorom zata re - ghamanche lott gelet; sutt bhizon sarkem
thapo zalam!" (It's so hot that I am sweating like a pig; my suit is
completely wet!) What else do you expect when you wear a suit in hot
weather!

There used to be a dress code for occasions but it is dying out very
fast.. These days, highly educated males wear casual dress even at big
functions, including nuptial ceremonies, feast mass, Christmas, New
Year, Easter, etc. and the least educated are seen with suits on! Does
that make them more educated than the ones wearing casual wear?

Here is another example: People who are well read mostly fail to carry a
pen with them but a person who can barely write his name never fails to
carry a pen with him. Does that determine his level of education?

There was a time organizers of big dances in Goa emphasized on a dress
code but these days they don't because they do not wish to limit the
entry to 'formally dressed crowd only.'

During colonial times, almost every grown up male, however poor he was,
had a suit, which he got made at his wedding. He wore that suit for all
occasions, including funerals. Over the years it came to be known as
"Sonsticho fato or suit" (suit of generations) because it would last
from his wedding to his children's wedding(s) and finally he would be
buried with it. That generation is long gone and ours will follow suit.
We have to move with the times!

COMMENT : My dear Domnic, you are confusing
literacy with education. Education means Knowledge included, but mainly how to
behave, manners, dressing up, what not to do and courtesy in presence of society.

Organizers of big Dances are business oriented.
Try to get inside a Medical Ball with informal clothes on. (i.e. I presume it is
not become commercial yet.)

And lastly, moving with the times actually
means improving on your education, or do you mean degeneration?

behave, manners, dressing up, what not to do and courtesy in presence of society.

Organizers of big Dances are business oriented.
Try to get inside a Medical Ball with informal clothes on. (i.e. I presume it is
not become commercial yet.)

And lastly, moving with the times actually
means improving on your education, or do you mean degeneration?

Please come to Goa and witness it for yourself whether it is hot or
cold. Today, many people are health-conscious - they would rather wear
casual clothes than a suit and get suffocated! No wonder, we hear
suit-wearing men complain every now and then in the "festachi feri"
(feast fair):

"Xi, kitem gorom zata re - ghamanche lott gelet; sutt bhizon sarkem
thapo zalam!" (It's so hot that I am sweating like a pig; my suit is
completely wet!) What else do you expect when you wear a suit in hot
weather!

There used to be a dress code for occasions but it is dying out very
fast.. These days, highly educated males wear casual dress even at big
functions, including nuptial ceremonies, feast mass, Christmas, New
Year, Easter, etc. and the least educated are seen with suits on! Does
that make them more educated than the ones wearing casual wear?

Here is another example: People who are well read mostly fail to carry a
pen with them but a person who can barely write his name never fails to
carry a pen with him. Does that determine his level of education?

There was a time organizers of big dances in Goa emphasized on a dress
code but these days they don't because they do not wish to limit the
entry to 'formally dressed crowd only.'

During colonial times, almost every grown up male, however poor he was,
had a suit, which he got made at his wedding. He wore that suit for all
occasions, including funerals. Over the years it came to be known as
"Sonsticho fato or suit" (suit of generations) because it would last
from his wedding to his children's wedding(s) and finally he would be
buried with it. That generation is long gone and ours will follow suit.
We have to move with the times!
