A Daughter's Story
SHE has called it "A Daughter's Story". For MARIA AURORA COUTO, her book is an attempt to define what she terms as "Goanity". "I travelled many times between Goa and Portugal. It was fascinating and enriching but my best bet were the old books and reference materials sent to me from nearly everywhere," said Couto. That was, she said, the basis for her book Goa: A Daughter's Story, which traces the evolution of Goa's society. She said that often, during writing the book, she would end up taking cruises to the little islands that made up Goa "just to get a feel of the people." Her verdict: Life hasn't really changed dramatically for many of them. "That's what I wanted to portray in my book, truthfully," said Couto.
