The Portuguese Impress brings together the author’s various writings, primarily, on life in the Portuguese possessions of Bombay, Bassein (today’s Vasai), and Goa. She traces the migration of families from the Goan mainland to Bombay and Bassein, and, while chronicling their lives there, provides an engaging history of those places. What results is a fascinating tale of migration and enterprise, and a faithful retelling of Goan life outside Goa.

What has engendered that subtle streak linking Goa to Bombay and Bassein? Could that partial slant westward hark back to a somewhat shared past? Did it bring about that unique blend of East and West into the life style of a minuscule section of Goa, Bombay and Bassein?
Just a peep into these pages and you will see that trend again, and again… in simple folk with an equal zest for work and play, so diversely creative, yet reveling in song, dance and food, well aware of concern for a better tomorrow.
