Arossim in Mormugao taluka is more than just a scenic beach village. Situated between the river Sal and the Arabian Sea, and dotted with many ponds, this agricultural piece of land has sustained its inhabitants with rice, coconuts and fish. The earlier Hindu and later Christian faiths, nurtured by long standing traditions and beliefs, have molded the character of the people, producing a uniquely Goan culture. Understanding the roots of the village structure allows the viewing in a broader perspective of the tremendous changes of recent years. In this book, an expat son of the village studies the roots of local traditions and structures.
