Portuguese journalist-author Leonora Figueiredo has authored an intriguing book on a surprising Goan personality, the revolutionary student Sita Valles. As a 26-year-old doctor, she was shot dead in an execution by the post-colonial Angolan regime, for allegedly attempting to oust that ruling combine. D.A. Smith, who translated the book into English, discusses its theme with historian Dr Sushila Sawant Mendes and FN.

While Goa often talks about its diasporic communities, it forgets what could be termed its first major and probably most important diaspora. Thus argues Alan Machado, the author of three books on the Mangaloreans -- Saraswati's Children (history), Shades within Shadows (fiction) and Slaves of Sultans (history). Here he talks about his work, and the Mangaloreans, in an interview with Frederick Noronha (FN)
