Jan Huygen van Linschoten  (1563 – 1611)

was a Dutch merchant, trader and historian.

He traveled extensively along the East Indies regions under Portuguese influence and served as the archbishop's secretary in Goa between 1583 and 1588. His paintings – one such below, gives details of the life and times of Goa during 16th century.

During his stay in Goa, he meticulously copied the secret charts page by page. Even more crucially, he provided nautical data like currents, deeps, islands and sandbanks that were absolutely vital for safe navigation, along with coastal depictions to guide the way.

 

In 1596, he published a book, Itinerario (later published as an English edition as Discours of Voyages into Ye East & West Indies), which graphically displayed for the first time in Europe detailed maps of voyages to the East Indies, particularly India. The publication of the navigational routes enabled the passage to the East Indies to be opened to trading by the Dutch, French and the English. As a consequence, the Dutch East India Company and the British East India Company would break the 16th-century monopoly enjoyed by the Portuguese on trade with the East Indies

Doriachea lharari,

                                      Upon the waves of the sea,

Chondrimachea uzvaddari,

                                      And in the light of the moon,

Hea mojea kensanchea fantieri,

                                      Upon the pleath of my hair,

Jurar zatam Deva mukari.

Io rê moga, choi rê mhaka,

Mogache dolle lai rê mhaka.

                                       Give me a loving look.

Predating Fort Aguada by half a century, a second, smaller fort that crowns the headland jutting into the narrowest stretch of the Mandovi, almost facing the capital city Panjim, is the Reis Magos Fort. This Fort, surrounded by sturdy laterite walls studded with typically Portuguese turrets, was erected in 1551 to protect the narrowest point at the mouth of the Mandovi estuary. It was enlarged subsequently on different occasions and finally re-erected in 1707. The fort formerly accommodated viceroys and other dignitaries newly arrived from, or en route to, Lisbon, and in the early eighteenth century proved a linchpin in the wars against the Marathas, who were never able to take it.

The Novel Barroz tells us about how a young girl befriends
‘a treasure guarding ghost’  ... and along with the prankish grandpa, she has a whale of a time.

Yet below this rollicking surface lies the fact that Isa is more spooky and ghoulish than the real ghost!
Following serious mischief and toxic misbehavior at her Darjeeling Residential School, Isa is presently under suspension.
