A little about us… We are called Goans…and we are from India’s smallest state, Goa and we are extremely proud of ourselves 🙂 Sorry, if you are not goan or have no connections with us…if you are my friend…or follower on this blog, Well!! be proud of yourself…you know a goan and that’s as close you can get to being associated with Goa…more like a 0.00009% 🙂
now read more if you are curious about us 🙂
# NO – People fom Goa are not Goanese, and neither Goanese is a language. The language is Konkani…and just incase that you don’t know, we laugh behind your back at your attempt of speaking our language…its not the same, its seriously hilarious!!
# NO – We do not live on the beach. Calangute and Anjuna aren’t the only two beaches that Goa has…just saying!
# …and yes further stating the point above…Goa doesn’t start at Anjuna and end at Calangute.
# NO – All Goans do not play the guitar…take me for example, I don’t even own a guitar let alone play one.
# NO – We do not eat fish for breakfast and drink Feni every minute of the day. Fish is plentily available…doesn’t mean we eat it all the time. You can have a share of fish when you are on holiday…at a price tho’…
# YES – We have colleges in Goa and NO they are not on the beach.
# NO – We don’t wear bright & colorful funky clothes. If you say “I saw that in the movies…” Screw bollywood, it has ruined you.
# NO – Anthony Gonsalves is not a neighbor everytime. I know an Anthony and a Gonsalves, they are two different people and they aren’t even my neighbors, they stay in the village of Assolna…which is 10 kms from where I stay. If you are interested to know where Assolna is… google it!!
# YES – Goans are sexy. If you have heard it from a friend or a passing tourist who has visited Goa before…there are absolutely correct. Sexy has a very different meaning in Goa. You wanna clarify that before coming here. ‘Sexy’ is ‘classy’ in a very attractive way here.
What is shown in Bollywood is not the real Goa…and yes there is no GOA City! You aren’t just visiting a state, you are experiencing a lifestyle…a whole different one…from whichever other screwed up part of India you are coming from 😉
Okay that was harsh…we all love the place we are born in…but ‘Screw You’…it’s still not GOA…hahahahahaha 🙂
and lastly… # YES – I have better things to do than be your guide! A guide is a service provided…pay him his fees and he’ll gladly do it for you 🙂
