When Goan politician Vijay Sardasai announces the word سسیگڈ – soo-saay-gaad – It moves slowly through the tongue. سوسگڈ Goa’s word is a word of cozy, comfortable culture, and Sardasai promises to preserve one of its essential features.
Government elections are not scheduled for early next year, but Goa Forward Party leader Sardasai has decided to step forward (not with too much power) by announcing that if he wins and becomes chief minister. He will do an hour. Mandatory at any time from 1pm to 4pm.
Extraordinary election promises have generated some interest (nothing harsh, though) and come at a time when many Indians from outside the tropical paradise, who have bought shops and businesses here, have Angered to keep it open. They even work on Sundays.
For Gowan, this behavior is reprehensible. When you can sit in the shade near a palm tree, have a cold beer, then have a lunch of fish and rice and a nap, why on earth would you be so stupid that you want to work?
Sardasai, 51, also insists on a daily siesta during the “Ganth” (newspaper) during the election campaign. He has turned off his phone and he is not alone. The toilet may be blocked and the laptop may be out, but during these stupid, delicate hours, only one stupid person will try to find a repairman.
“Siesta is a part of Sisgad and Sesgad Goa has a cool and easy-going identity. Outsiders have failed to respect this ritual, I want to make it a law. For us, Gwans, it’s the quality of life, not the amount of money that matters. We like what we have.
He cited medical research that found that PowerNap could improve performance and memory, lift moods, alert people and reduce the risk of heart attack.
“Siesta gives you comfort. I know I feel tired if I give it up, I can’t work. And then I can’t enjoy my evening, so what’s the point? He asked.
Due to a misconception that she works “24/7, 365 days a year”, property broker Lisa Waheeda Sosa knows the obscure rules. “Harassing someone between 1pm and 4pm is considered the height of abuse. The feeling is, ‘Why work when you can relax?’ People are satisfied, they don’t want to be part of the rat race.
If Indians like to vacation in Goa, it is not only because of the sun, sea and sand but also because of this particular culture. It was ruled by the Portuguese for 400 years (Susgad is from the Portuguese) be quite For Silence) Goa became independent only in 1961, 14 years after India gained independence from Britain.
The state’s Portuguese villas and food, Catholic churches and Sussex Gad culture offer a charming alternative to noisy, crowded cities in other parts of the country.
In fact, given how Gowan enjoys life, many Indians may envy their relaxed demeanor to cope with the heat and humidity.
Sardasai believes there is no point in fighting the weather. When the sun sets, the body, after a good lunch, obeys the command to lie down with nature. “It’s very hot and humid, a cita makes perfect sense,” he said.
Then he remembered his trips to England, where his daughter was studying, and added: “It feels good when it’s raining.”
