Clyde talks about all things Goa! From the free ferry system to why Goans like fish curry and mango pickle! He calls Susegad a ‘self-happy’ book. We discuss the meaning of the Konkani word ‘Susegad’ and his favourite stories and recipes from the book. Tara loves how this book captures the history of Goa and takes us into the Goan village life. Michelle loves all the anecdotes he shares, like when his aunt gets a coconut plucker to pluck 500 coconuts in 20 minutes!
How did he fit short stories, recipes, and doodles into one non-fiction book? How does he practice Susegad on a daily basis? Tune in for a relaxing chat that takes your mind off the pandemic!
