This book is about Afonso de Albuquerque’s grand dream of creating in Asia a community of people who would be loyal to the Portuguese crown not just politically, but emotionally as well.

This book is about Afonso de Albuquerque’s grand dream of creating in Asia a community of people who would be loyal to the Portuguese crown not just politically, but emotionally as well.

Albuquerque had conceived a three pronged attack on Goan identity: conversion to Christianity, annihilation of the native language and the mixing of the blood.

Once these three roots of identity – religion, language and race – were severed, Albuquerque expected Goans to be a lost people, naturally gravitating towards a Portuguese identity.
