Composite Culture and Identity

Composite Culture and Identity

Ratings: (0)|Views: 24|Likes:
Goan identity needs to be explored as it evolved over centuries under different rulers, or under village communities and their caste oligarchies, which D.D. Kosambi classified as feudalism from below. The Islamic and Portuguese impact, and the post-colonial integration into the Indian Union, have all contributed to the composite culture of Goa, which cannot be reduced to ethnic, religious or caste identity. All who cherish Goa and locate themselves into its past or present, be they permanent residents, NRI, OIC, or diasporic Goans with varied citizenships and nationalities, with varied interests and opinions, with whatever other diversities they display, need to be accepted as hundred flowers with right to blossom in the garden of Goa’s composite culture.
