Discussing 17th Century Goa frames for a song sequence.
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

Upon the waves of the sea,
And in the light of the moon,
Hea mojea kensanchea fantieri,
Upon the pleath of my hair,
Jurar zatam Deva mukari.
I give an oath in the presence of God.
