Book Description
About The Book

The Portuguese territories in India now consist of Goa, Daman and Diu. The settlement of Goa is due to fine harbor, from by the promontories of Bardes and Salsette. Goa is considered an integral part of Portuguese Empire and with Daman and Diu for administrative purposes. At the time when Portuguese first reach India, the Indo-European commerce was entirely in the hands of Arabs About the time that the Portuguese arrived in India, the Empire of Brahmani Musalman became dismembered into five separate Kingdurn. The political position of Portugal, engrossed as it was by its wars with Spain, rendered the thought of an application for an expensive feet of discovery worse than useless.
