Our Christmas Bazaar at Defence Colony Gymkhana, Porvorim on Sunday 16 December 2018 drew a huge crowd (photos here) and was followed by the Christmas Tree for children and a social evening for all attended by more than a hundred people (photos and videos here).

At the National AGM 2018 at Pune, the Goa Branch received two awards.  The Branch bagged The Albert Barrow Award for the Best Secretariat (Silver) and Darryl Burke was awarded for selflessly serving the Goa Branch with dedication, loyalty and consistency.

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.
