Product Description

Clyde D'Souza is a creative director who has worked in TV, print and digital. He is the author of Kissing Ass: The Art of Office Politics and Ghanta College: The Art of Topping College Life, published by Penguin Random House India. Clyde lives between Mumbai and Goa.

'Susegad' is a Konkani word that has no exact translation in English. Goans use it to convey the sense of contentment, fulfilment and relaxation that everyone associates with Goa and its culture. Clyde D'Souza, bestselling author and proud Goan, shows us the wonderful, unique elements that help Goans achieve susegad, and what you can do to add a pinch of this magic to your life, no matter where you live.
As Clyde takes us on a journey through Goa's beautiful beaches, lush greenery, exquisite cuisine, mix of Portuguese and Konkani culture, its history, festivals, music and architecture, you'll learn what makes Goans tick and how they've created habits and routines that lend happiness and calm to their lives. Interviews with noted Goans, short stories, recipes and pictures in this book bring out what it means to be Goan, and help you find your own susegad.

Follow bestselling author and proud Goan Clyde D'Souza as he guides you through the wonderful, unique elements that help Goans achieve susegad -- and add this magic to your life, no matter where you live[Susegad] is a way of life; rituals they've integrated so deeply into their lives that they hardly notice them. Which is why, if you ask Goans what's the secret to their susegad, they'll wave it off by saying, 'It's just our style, men.'It is a well-known fact that the synonym for Goa is 'susegad'. And indeed, while terms like ikigai, the konmari method, hygge, etc, have become hugely popular in recent times to help one improve the quality of one's life, down in Goa, locals have for years perfected their own style of qualitative living.It is for those visitors who want to go beyond the beaches and the bars, and explore those little village ways that still exist. The other aspect is to look at some of the ways you can bring susegad elements into your life. For example, by taking a siesta.Interviews with noted Goans, short stories, recipes and pictures in this book bring out what it means to be Goan, and help you find your own susegad.As we negotiate challenging times in the aftermath of the pandemic, a book that releases today vouches for and dissects the Goan way of life to seek contentment and relaxation
