The proverbs of Konkani culture bear witness to a simpler time when morality and ethics were taught through metaphors from Nature – the animals, birds, flowers, fruits, hills and rivers of a bountiful Goa.

The quirks and follies of Man are tersely expressed with biting wit and even the passage of kings and nations through our tiny but significant land of Goa are inscribed in our aphorisms forever.

In this desk calendar, the satirical wit and profundity of 366 Konkani proverbs stand alongside the illustrations of the most iconic and celebrated Goan cartoonist, Mário de Miranda. The proverbs and cartoons will ensure you start your day with a smile, sometimes a hearty laugh, and a gem of ancient Goan wisdom.
