Glimpses of India

(I) A Baker from Goa

INTRODUCTION—
‘A Baker from Goa’ is a pen portrait of a traditional Goan village baker who still has an important place in his society. The narrator is travelling through the memory lane thinking about the loaves of bread a baker delivered every morning.

SUMMARY—
Goa is very much influenced by the Portuguese. Their traditional work can be still seen there. The Portuguese are famous for preparing the loaves of bread. We can come across the bakers of bread. The writer tells about his childhood days in Goa when the baker used to visit their friend. He used to visit the house twice a day. In the morning, his jingling sound of the bamboo woke them from sleep. They all ran to meet him. The loaves were purchased by the man-servant of the house. The villagers were much fond of the sweet bread known as ‘bol’. The marriage gifts were meaningless without it. So the bakers’ furnace in the village was the most essential thing. The lady of the house prepared sandwiches on the occasion of her daughter’s engagement. In those days the bread sellers wore a particular dress known as ‘Kabai’. It was a single piece long frock up to the knees. Even today, they can be seen wearing a half pant that reaches just below the knees. People usually comment that he is dressed like a ‘pader’. Baking was a profitable profession in the old days. The baker and his family never starved and they looked happy and prosperous.

Short Answer Type Questions


Question. Baking was considered essential in a traditional Goan village. What reasons does the writer give to support his point ?

Answer. No festival in Goa is complete without bakery products—be it marriages, engagements or any other ceremony.
Traditional sweet bread, known as ‘bol’ is to be given with marriage gifts. At Christmas ‘bolinhas’ and cakes are a must. Any party or feast without bread is considered incomplete.


Question. Even today any person with a jackfruit-like physical appearance is easily compared to a baker. Explain.

Answer. Bread-making is a prosperous business in Goa. The physique of the baker, i.e., his plump and round body are testimony to that. Therefore, anyone who is fat and plump just like a jackfruit is compared to a baker.


Question. Is bread an important part of Goan life ? How do you know this ? 

Answer. Yes, bread is an important part of Goan life even today. This we can definitely say because bread is not only a part of their daily life but also of important occasions like Christmas, festivals, weddings and engagements.
These occasions are incomplete without a special preparation for each event, made from bread.


Question. Comment on the significance of a bread baker in a traditional Goan village ?

Answer. Bread is a permanent item of a Goan meal and the baker is an important member of the Goan community.
Besides, sweet bread ‘bol’ is a special delicacy, served at festivals and cakes and bolinhas are a special charm at Christmas. A baker’s furnace is therefore indispensable in a traditional Goan village.

 

Long Answer Type Questions  


Question. What was the peculiar dress of the bakers during the Portuguese days ? What is a person called if he wears half-pants.

Answer. During the Portuguese days, the bakers wore a peculiar dress called the ‘kabai’, that was a frock in a single piece, reaching upto the knees. But during his childhood, the author had seen the bakers wearing shirts with trousers that were longer than half pants, but shorter than a full length one. Even today, anyone who wears a half pant which reaches just below the knees invites the comment that he is dressed as a pader.

Answer. In the lesson ‘Coorg’, the author tells us that the Coorgi people are descendants of either the Greeks or the Arabs.He says that they could have Greek origin because there was a legend that a part of Alexander’s army had moved to south and settled here. According to another legend, they had Arab origin because of the dresses they wore.
The author also tells us that the first General of the Indian Army, General Cariappa was a Coorg.
It is important for us to know about the deep rooted cultural background of our country and heritage so that we become aware of the fact that our culture has always welcomed people from other cultures and absorbed them into its own. This spreads the message of being tolerant which is very important in today’s world when the world is torn with war because of these ethnic reasons.
