Talk on Goan Inquisition by Shefali Vaidya
21st April 2018, Sustainability Initiatives and INDIC Academy organised talk on Goan Inquisition by Ms. Shefali Vaidya at Sustainability Initiatives. The talk was full of insightful facts and information and references. Ms. Shefali’s emotional connect with Goa was evident when she spoke about how Goans, for 250 years, endured the Inquisition….an untold story unfolded evening for an audience of 150 Punekars.
The talk was signed off by voicing some very important questions – Why is it important to learn history and not gloss it over? What should we learn from history? How can we speak, acknowledge and understand history so that it helps to heal wounds? How can we move forward having acknowledged the past?
SI team members, Ar. Anagha Paranjape – Purohit and Mr. Amol Umbarje were present, along with SI Interns Ms. Ritika Vakil and Mr. Abhay Bachhuka.
