Delegates Ball 2017

The Goa Branch received two awards at the National AGM 2017.  The Branch was awarded The Albert Barrow Award for the Best Secretariat, and Justin Clarke was honoured for leading from the front with dedication and drive.  Photos and videos of the meeting and the social events can be viewed here.

53 people put on their dancing shoes and joined us at our World Anglo-Indian Day Social Evening on Saturday 5 August 2017 at A Lua, Verna.  Music by Desmond Taylor kept the crowd entertained.  Photos and a short video here.

The 9th AGM of the Goa Branch at Clube Tennis De Gasper Dias, Miramar on 25 June 2017 was well attended.  The meeting was followed by a get-together and lunch.  Music by our member Desmond Taylor, supplemented by many other members with a bent for singing, was much enjoyed by all.

84 people enjoyed our Summer Social at Defence Colony Gymkhana, Porvorim on 22 April 2017.  Harold Manning's music kept the feet tapping and the hips swaying!  Photos and videos here.

We completed eight years on 18 January 2017.  We marked the occasion at Mangor Hill, Vasco da Gama on Sunday 22 January 2017 with a Thanksgiving Mass at Our Lady of Piety Chapel followed by a get-together and home-cooked Anglo-Indian lunch at Mangor Sports Club, Gurdwara Road.  Around 60 people joined in and had a good time.  Photos here.

About 180 people had a great time at our Grand Christmas Ball on 26 December 2016 at A Lua, Merces.  Scintillating music was provided by Laurie and The Lace.  Photos and videos here.

AIs on the Net

While searching the net for news items about Anglo-Indians, we came across many sites by and for AIs.  There were far too many to list in the sidebar, so we have added a page to list them all.

Anglo-India-Central is a newsy site with a well categorized library of links to still more Anglo-Indian sites; savour Anglo-Indian fare with the recipes of Bridget Kumar of Bengaluru (Bangalore), who maintains no less than five sites devoted solely to Anglo-Indian cuisine.  Get to know about the AI Associations of Canada, Australia and other places or read about the pivotal role played by AIs in the Indian Railways and Air Force.

We also discovered the website of a very similar community: The Eurasian Association, Singapore, who even have their own Heritage Center to showcase their history and culture.  The past issues of their quarterly magazine, the NEWEURASIAN, make good reading.

If you know of any other sites that you think worthy of inclusion, do drop us a line at or post a comment on our WordPress blog.
