    Internationalising the Goa problem | Konkan Uprising 2

    Internationalising the Goa problem | Konkan Uprising 2

    Between 1946 and 1956, the Goa question had entered the international domain. India became independent but did not want to annex Goa by force. It stressed Goa’s social and cultural unity with India but insuu insisted on a diplomatic handover by Portugal. The latter had no such intention.

    Meanwhile, the freedom fighters in Goa carried on their struggles. In 1954, India imposed an economic boycott, hoping Portugal would finally surrender an impoverished Goa. But the reality turned out to be the very opposite. How did Goa become wealthy for the first time in the middle of a crippling economic blockade?

    The second episode of The Konkan Rising, a four-part series on the liberation of Goa on HistoryChatter, explores that irony.

    Goa Towards Liberation | Konkan Uprising 1

    Goa Towards Liberation | Konkan Uprising 1

    The people of Goa fell into a peculiar problem this month due to a recent change in Indian passport laws. Early last year, Prime Minister Modi claimed that Jawaharlal Nehru deliberately delayed Goa’s liberation and integration with India. What really happened with Goa? I went back to Sushila Mendes’ work and the recent monograph of Valmiki Faleiro on the liberation of Goa. This and the next three episodes of HistoryChatter offer a detailed account of Goa’s peculiar relations with India.

    I focus primarily on the process of its liberation and union with India. This comes closely on the heels of our series on the integration of the princely states with India. The first episode presents the background and the landmark 1946 intervention by Rammanohar Lahia. It also offers one of the interpretations of Jawaharlal Nehru’s role in the process.

    When South India started drinking coffee

    When South India started drinking coffee

    Coffee drinking on a large scale did not start in India before the early 20th century. Once it became popular as a leisure drink, many commentators responded to its novel appeal. Some believed it was making Indians more prone to diseases. Yet others believed coffee reduced breast milk supply in lactating mothers. This episode looks into such varied cultural responses to the introduction of coffee consumption in south India, drawing from the pioneering work of A R Venkatachalapathy.

the content and the overall delivery of the podcats is good but for me i think it needs to be recorderd in better enviornment , with better equipments and the post production needs to be absolute great. right now the sound quality is okay but there's too much noise and a very big so annoying clicking sound on and on and on again that i couldn't stand it and had to stop listening to this podcast.

please don't get me wrong the content is great but the output needs to be great too. thank you.

i really like history and indian history in general and hope i could come back to this podcast again soon...

thanks & regards

Shankar Mahadevan says ,

Not a fan of the narrator

Good content, but can’t listen to more than 10 mins. Very poor intonation and energy.

ggolu2 ,

Extremely ill informed

Extremely ill informed first episode. Instead of starting with ignorant narrative of colonial India it should have started with the idea of atomism which originated in India. The narrative seems like India and Indians are foreign to “Science”. Man such a sad state of affairs. Gotta wait another generation to see “Indians” really having an optimistic sub consicious.
