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.

An audio-book read by the author, artist-musician-writer Willy Goes. This novelette is a story set amidst the contemporary Goan clash of changing values, visions and views. The traditional and the "modern". Located in a Catholic setting in village Goa, it focuses on issues of faith and a lack of it. The book is narrated by the author himself, in a simple but expressive language. This labour of love for the author can also be useful as a language-practice and language...

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)
