Let Us Be Candid About Our Failings And Weaknesses – by Jose Maria Miranda

Let Us Be Candid About Our Failings And Weaknesses – by Jose Maria Miranda

We, Goans, have often been labeled as “sossegado”, meaning not lazy but relaxed people, taking things easy. Relaxation is surely essential in our lives and taking things coolly have helped us in being courteous, docile and keeping our Goa peaceful, unlike many other places in India. However, taking things lying down without a whimper, tolerating delays or inaction and having such issues solved by paying bribes, overlooking irregularities and illegalities, prejudicial to the State or the general public for fear of displeasing someone or expecting others to fight on our behalf, remaining aloof and reaping the fruits of such struggles, are surely not the right attitudes or choices.

Even at the risk of being called arrogant or rubbing friends or acquaintances the wrong way, we need to stand up to what is right, for much of what happens or does not happen today is the result of our silence. However, it is not on this topic that I wanted to dwell today. It is on a much more serious topic: it is on our attitude towards work and the dignity of labour
