Portuguese structure still stands tall at Curdi ­

Sanguem: It’s been years since Liberation, and the Portuguese structure at Curdi has stood tall with the test of time despite the village being submerged under Selaulim Dam waters for most of the year.This is the sad tale of a Portuguese house at Curdi, which is now in ruins. But the fact is that despite miscreants taking away the roof tiles and the rafters the entrance to the house and the side walls of this palatial house, which is surrounded by bushes and trees, have remained intact.
Manoj Paryekar, villager, who is now rehabilitated at Valkini after the construction of the Selaulim Dam said, “Despite the construction of the Selaulim Dam, the house which was occupied by the Portuguese officials and the gate at the entrance have remained intact. After the acquisition process, the miscreants decamped with the wooden rafters and the metal pieces. The structure like many other old structures in village has remained intact even after 30 years of the construction of the Selaulim Dam. Most structures in the village have collapsed and the picnickers who visit the backwaters of the Selaulim Reservoir at Kurdi appreciate the structural value of this Portuguese house. [H]
