Book synopsis/description:

Sylveser Philip D'souza went west to Canada in 1918 to look for gold, but lost his fortune. A year later his son Anju D'souza went east to Burma, and discovered a golden last.

Visit Nachinola in 1942. Meet Goans from 1908. Encounter World War II on the eastern front. Take a holiday in Goa of the times. And experience what life was like just after the Portuguese rule ended in seldom-written-about Goa of the 1960s.

But these are more than just the stories of one family. It tells the story of a generation and more, in times when Goa was undergoing very rapid change. It is a story of Goa, of a period many would recall wistfully.
