Grand release for ‘Poskem’

Renowned fashion designer Padma Shri Wendell Rodricks launched his latest book ‘Poskem: Goan in the Shadows’ at Vivanta by Taj, Panaji.

The release was followed by a panel discussion with eminent Konkani literateur Damodar Mauzo, former actor Kimi Katkar, and cookbook author Maria Goretti.
The book, which includes illustrations by world renowed artist Mario Miranda, tackles the sensitive and often ignored subject of the “adopted children” who, with a few exceptions, were taken into wealthy families but made to work as servants.
At the release, Wendell Rodricks said, “It is the time to apologise to the poskem for the treatment they were meted out. He also revelead that he has been approached to translate the book into Konkani, Kannada, Italian and Portuguese. 
The evening saw a full house attendance by writers, book lovers and eminent citizens of Goa.
