No story on colonial Panjim would be complete without examining the nature of its urban governance, society and economy. A glance at the historiography on Indo-Portuguese history reveals a total absence and negligence of these vital aspects of an urban set-up.
The administration of the city of Nova Goa during the period from 1843 to 1961 would be an eye-opener to many. For, despite constraints, such as the lack of funds and manpower, the authorities were able to provide essential services and utilities, attend to law and order, control traffic movement on road and river, maintain and repair municipal structures, and, with considerable effort, oversee urban environment, health and sanitation.
The human element is without doubt a relevant and significant aspect of any urban space. This book highlights the nature of colonial Panjim’s urban population and the socio-economic activities it engaged in. It takes us back to other times, and offers deep insights into how things were managed then, and how people lived in colonial Panjim.
