art  cultureThe GOACOM Biography Series celebrates the life and work of people who have brought honour to Goa and the Goan Community.

When preparing for this section there were formidable problems to overcome: Where and how to obtain a credible list of names, and biographies?

A quick survey of books, magazines, and newspapers, revealed the names of 150 famous persons ranging from freedom fighters, community leaders, nation builders, clerics, artists, writers, scientists, industrialists, and men and women in sports. There is little doubt that with further research the list could be more than doubled.

GOACOM acknowledges contrbutions from the following sources:

Mr. Alfredo Froilano De Mello of Montevideo, Uruguay, Prof. Ann Menezes of Aldona, Goa, Dr. Jose Colaco, Bahamas, Mrs. Elvira Uvenhoven, Toronto, Mr. John Lobo of Mississauga, Ontario, Mr. Joseph ( Boogie) Viegas, Goa, Moira Village Association, Toronto, Fred Noronha, Goa, Goa Now Webzine, Goa and Goa Today Magazine, Goa.
