Tomazinho Cardozo's Commentary


After Liberation, Goan lifestyle has undergone a drastic change, which has created job opportunities for others and hence the influx of non-Goans into the state. Soon after Liberation, rapid spread of education provided enough opportunity to all Goans to study, irrespective of caste, creed and religion. Higher education too was brought to their doorstep. Hence literacy increased and naturally it led the youth to search for white-collar jobs. Simultaneously, doors to Gulf countries opened wide, thereby tempting our youth to migrate... If as per the statistics, the percentage of non-Goans in the state is about 35% about 15 to 20 years later, I feel it will be more than 50 per cent. We will not be in a position to stop this trend because their 'services' are needed for our survival. Under these circumstances, what will Goa and Goans be like in 2025, only time will tell!
