In the age of electronics,

we have forgotten the old traditions and methods how bread was made. “Te poder melhe, ani te pao gele” is an old saying. Padaria Caitancamil was inaugurated at Ancestral Goa/Big Foot in Loutolim, where the Goan bread man is depicted with the jingling of the bells and bottle caps attached to a ‘dando’ with piping hot ‘pao’. Next to him, in his bakery, the process of making bread is shown. This will be a permanent exhibition created and executed by Maendra Alvares, which is very realistic.

On this occasion, the people carrying on with same trade in and around Loutolim were felicitated. The lamp was lit at the hands of Rajani Gupte and was blessed by Fr Ligorinho Costa.

The various types of bread displayed here are: ‘pao’ (dinner rolls), ‘undo’ (crusty dinner rolls), ‘poie’ (round bread pocket, made with wheat flour and maida), ‘katro’ (rectangular shaped bread with convex sides), ‘kankonn’ (‘bangle’ or crusty doughnut shaped bread), ‘bol’ (large round sweet coconutty bread).
