Mapusa memories…

Opposite the Remanso was the large house and compound of Jeronimo Caetano Braganca where Da. Blasia took gentle and firm care of the siblings. A nephew of the house, Aquino Braganca, became famous for his participation, as a member of FRELIMO, in the struggle for the independence of Mozambique, having perished in the same plane crash that killed Samora Machel, then President of the country, of whose entourage he formed part. I had known ‘Aquin’ when he was doing Inter Science at Belgaum and I was in the sixth standard. He was
always serious but affable and congenial. — Marcos Gomes Catao (Goanet Reader) Those were good days… Mapusa in the 1930s and 1940s http://www.mail-archive.com/goanet-news@goanet.org/msg01033.html
