Review of the book "Lost in Goa" by Ingrid von Heiseler
Lost, but not astray

By Friedhelm Baumgärtner

A desperate mother, beggar in Panjim, capital of Goa, is searching for her little daughter, in vain. What do the foreigners who hang around in the park, have to do with her disappearance? Will the tourist Manuela kill herself, and if so, how will she do that? And is she also involved in the disappearance of the child? Readers learn about the exciting events, but at the same time many facts about place and time of the action and of the mood ruling in Goa at the end of the last century: many older cultivate their nostalgia for the Portuguese period. Numerous original photos illustrate the text. Please read the full text (in German) here...
