Communal bonding is probably good for business… as in the Mapusa city… where members of Goa’s major communities are seen at least once a year… for the Milagres feast at the 1594-built Mannerist Neo-Roman style St Jerome’s Church and also at the Comunidade House nearby where the gaonkars of the same communities meet to collect their annual zonn or otherwise. Around these two landmarks, the common folk met to buy and sell commodities until the new Municipal Market came up just before Liberation. Goods came from the surrounding villages via canoes along the rivulet and landed at the Tar in front of the church.ImageImage
