SOME of you may know that it has been my dream to produce a book celebrating current Goan achievers around the world. So far, I have failed miserably ... this is my last chance for my last book.

If you anyone who deserves recognition, please send me their names and contact details. There are lots and lots of Goans doing wonderful things in all aspects of life around the world. For history's sake let us celebrate them in a little book.

Help me, please.

Share this with anyone!
