Opts For A Joint Picnic By Armand Rodrigues
It is not often that three disparate entities get
together in an “unholy” alliance of sorts. For
Entebbe, Moira and Aldona to band together for a
conjoint picnic is akin to a marriage of
convenience. And, that is what it may well be. After
all, attrition is arguably taking its toll on all
our establishments and solutions have to be found to
keep the “home” fires burning. A brief synopsis of
the partners in this endeavour, is in order.

Let’e go back to the turn of the 19th century and

trekked hundreds of miles, through dense bush, and
crossed hippo- and crocodile-infested waters of Lake
Victoria, in native canoes, to arrive in Entebbe,
‘Sarasvati's Children: A History of the Mangalorean Christians’ and ‘Shades
within Shadows,’ Writer Alan Machado is all set to release his new book ‘Slaves
of Sultans’. The book interprets the saga of the migration of Goans to Mangaluru
which spans across a period of over 300 years.
The book speaks about many families, who moved out of the state fearing
inquisition and settled in Mangaluru during the Portuguese era. The work
explains how these people created an identity of their own over a span of three
centuries and the domination of Nacao Portuguese and Tipu Sultan’s regime.

Tale of Grief, Confusion, and Fear … Love, Dignity,
Hope, and Justice A Veil of Blood Hangs Over
Africa (CNW Group/Lucia Mann)
CA, July 20, 2015 /CNW/ - The innocent
women and children, who were violently ripped from
their peaceful homeland and herded into the filthy
bowels of an illegal slave ship, could not have
anticipated the cruelty that lay in wait for them on
a malicious white slaver's plantation. In A Veil of
Blood Hangs Over Africa, Lucia Mann completes her
African Trilogy with a captivating tale of
acceptance versus revenge, injustice in opposition
to rectitude, and shame contrasted with dignity. You
will be riveted by Mann's opposing themes, which
she, herself, was trapped in as a young girl
ensnared by a depraved South African master.
Yearning to be free is the overarching power of
Mann's work. Rallying behind a cast of characters
who risk so much for one more taste of freedom will
enrich readers beyond measure. A Veil of Blood is a
towering work that will expand horizons and touch
