  1. Yes, bread making is still popular in Goa. This is very clear from the narrator’s statement that the eaters have gone away leaving the makers behind. There are mixers, moulders and the ones who bake the loaves.

  2. Since the Portuguese days, bread has become an indispensable part of Goan society. Even after the end of Portuguese rule, there are people who work as mixers, moulders and bakers. During the childhood of the narrator, loaves of bread and bread bangles were popular among elders and children respectively.

    Bread is an integral part of various festive occasions and events such as marriage (Bol), Christmas and other festivals (Bolinhas and Sweet Bread), and at parties or a feast. Even today, furnaces are active, and bakery still continues to be an integral part of Goan society.
