Goa's Struggle for Freedom Durable Link to this BLOG
When I was in Goa earlier this year, they kept telling me "take right on 18th June". It was only February, and I didn't know that "18th June" was the name of the road, so I thought it was amusing.

On the subsequent day however, I learnt the importance of 18th June to Goa and her people. That was the day in 1946 Ram Manohar Lohia inspired Goans to join India, and dared the Portuguese to take on Gandhi's formula for non-violent change that was so successful in rest of India.

But the resistance of the Portuguese rule was not new, and quite didn't end with India's liberation. The Portuguese didn't leave India till they were unceremoniously driven away in 1961.

I am surprised that such a eventful freedom struggle is not well documented on the Web, so I have created a new section Goa's Freedom Struggle that chronicles the various movements and leaders.
