In the final analysis, what makes a place unique is its people. Over the centuries, the people of Saligao have distinguished themselves in varied fields and in different parts of the world. Musicians, writers, educationists, doctors, businessmen, religious – Saligao has had it all. And then of course there are the colourful characters of the village, whose antics and wisdom have been a perennial source of amusement and admiration.
