People and Culture of Goa

One of the positive & noteworthy aspect of Goa's development during The famous Goan carnival last 30 years has been the major transformation of Goan society from a feudal agrarian economy to a modern industrial State.

The migration of non Goans to Goa & Goans to foreign countries is a phenomenon which has lubricated the wheels of economic development in Goa. One of the impressive features of Goa is that Goa never had the oppressive levels of poverty that prevailed in the rest of the country.The weekly market in Goa

More than 50 % of the Goan population lives in urban areas and with a high per capita income. The percentage of the Goan middle class is considerably larger than that of any other state in India.

Goa can boast of its people already having a literacy level amongst the highest in the country which has given rise to trained and skilled manpower. Goa has one of the most tension free social environment in the country. One of the several Cathedrals in  Goa

The peaceful and friendly ambience is one of the most important reason why the entire tourist industry has flourished in Goa. Behind the social peace lies the social and political integration of the people.


There are no major ideological rifts that can create social cleavages in Goa and the Goans maintain a social and political equilibrium which has grown out of a sense of realisation that ultimately the future lies in working together regardless of religion , caste or creed.
