One of the few projects as an Editor that I have been so proud to associate with is the collected works of Joseph Furtado.
The process probably turned my own page on understanding a long-ago Goa.
This book is soon to hit the stands by Cinnamon Teal Design and Publishing.
This book is an act of memory to one of the finest poets India has birthed. A permanent collectible.
Against the backdrop of the Goa Inquisition, an ultimate love story between Babasino and Tulsibai unfurls through an ensemble cast of fidalguia and feringhees, traitress and brigands, saints and gamblers, slaves and concubines of a Goa unacquainted to contemporary times.
Songs in Exile
A collection of poems through which we see love, jest, longing for motherland, and Bazar English arise.
This, by Joseph Furtado (1872-1945) one of the earliest but least-known Indian English poets from Goa.
The time and place for his words under the sun have finally come.
