Variety of topics, ranging from historical migrations and their aftermath on Goa, and the Indian sub-continent, politics, music, business, and finally an invitation to readers to turn writers and be published in a book.
This book is not intended to be a piece of literature, but rather literacy in pieces – the fragmentary way.
A casual brush-up, piece by piece, on Indian history as related to migrations of people to and out of the sub-continent, and their outcome on the lives of people; on a variety of issues of interest, or even of concern to a common Indian, in little snippets so as to steer clear of boredom.
Also reflects upon the roots of the Goan writer, who says it all like it is, from his own life experiences, both in Goa and beyond, in a manner to be browsed over leisurely, and free of the pangs of bombast. It is devoid of monotonous narratives, particularly for the benefit of readers on the move.
The book also touches on entrepreneurship – investing strategy, cost-effective advertising, product innovation, and brand franchising. Finally, it invites readers to write on a subject of universal appeal: “Development of Human Resources”, and then see that work rewarded in print – itself, a prospect for readers to turn writers.
Some pieces inspired by nature, travel, work; and yet others provoked by burning topics of the moment. A few, serious in tone and critical; others, simply a play with words, in irony and plain humour. All of it, with prejudice to none - simpy my way.
