This is Anjuna’s story. From across the ages. Not just one of hippies and its beach. Instead, it is the tale of the village and her people. Foreword by Prof Newman Fernandes. Fernandes is former principal, St Xavier’s College, Mapusa: I don’t know who coined the proverb Anjuna fuddem ganv na and Anjunkarank nanv na. Most probably the neighbours!

The first part is a geographical statement, but the second part of the proverb is quite provocative and may invite retaliation. This book itself is an indication that the second part does not reflect today’s reality.

About the Author

Domnic PF Fernandes (1947) loves remembering the times that were, and narrating stories of the past for today’s generation. His sharp mind drew an appreciative audience for his writings on the INternet, particularly through Goanet, since 2003. This resulted in his first book Goa – A nostalgic romp through a bygone era (2007).

He grew up in a coastal village in Anjuna, Goa, and studied there and at Mapusa. His second book was on Mapusa and now he completes a hat-trick with this narrative on Anjuna.

The author has worked in Goa (Old Secretariat Panjim, 1967-71), Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. In October 2007 he retired from the Proffessional English Language Program and the College Preparatory Program as Advisor (Trainees) cum Chief Registrar of Saudi Aramco in Dhahran.
