Bakers have a special place in the history of mankind. They are not just the purveyors of food but also happiness. For a perspective on the Goan “Poder“, as the bakers are known in Goa, please check out Rajan Parrikar’s post.
The sculpture I encountered at the Neli’s Dutch Village evoked similar emotions which I felt, during my countless childhood mornings in Goa, whenever I heard the Ponk! Ponk! of the Goan Poder. Long live the Poder or De Bakker.
