The Portuguese found it necessary to create a social group faithful to them for the protection of their trade centres and in the bargain there occurred an inevitable creation of an ethnic social group of Portuguese descendants. The blockade of Constantinople by Ottoman Turks in 1453, practically prevented Europeans from trading with Asian countries.
So, it became a necessity for Europeans to find a new sea-route to India. Several European powers tried for this, especially Spain and Portugal.
Finally, Vasco da Gama, the Portuguese navigator reached Calicut in 1498. Vasco da Gama was followed by Pedro Alvares Cabral in 1500 and the creation of the so called Estado da India Portugesa (Portuguese State of India) by the posting of Francisco de Almeida as the first Viceroy in 1505.
The policy of Politica dos Casamentos (politics through marriages) introduced by Afonso de Albuquerque, the second Viceroy, by marrying Portuguese soldiers with Indian women and the resultant mixed race or mestices which eventually formed the Luso-Indian community in Malabar. The casados (married Portuguese men) and their role in Portuguese trade in Malabar forms an important part of this volume(less)

A bored, neglected youngster to whom the strangest things happen. His 'quiet neighbours' in Big Neem include a crotchety-voiced neem tree, the Chota Bandar gang and Ambi, a pretty ghost with leopard eyes.
Down the winding roads of Sonekote, zips a ghostly blood-red Jaguar. Along with Kavita and Cyclone Shaila, Anirudh must uncover the secrets of the misty, secluded hill-sides.
Red Jaguar takes our hero on the most exciting ride of his life. High in the Himalayas, a bird of prey waits and watches as Mrs Samson and her troupe of five: Sangeeta, the bug freak; the brothers, Billy and Lokesh; Aarti, haunted by the death of her parents in the same silent mountains and Anirudh trek their way through the lonely landscape.

He has focused on the prehistoric and distant episodes which find reflection in great Indian epic, and most revered Buddhist chronicles of Sri Lanka namely the epic Ramayana and chronicles Mahavansa.
Picking up his threads from epics, chronicles, legends and popular beliefs the author has weaved an enchanting sequence to demonstrate the spiritual unity between the people of two countries as it existed in ancient times. There is a graphic narration of Sri Lanka as LANKA(less)
