Bombay opened up a new world to the Goan, both Christian and Hindu. They rode high on the crest of the wave of priviledge, grabbed opportunity, worked hard at whatever they took up — not baulking at menial service, so long as it improved their standing.

Thus they were able to set up their own educational institutions, their own press. Other Goans strove to rectify their society, to actively promote education at the highest level, and organise reform movements. This book focuses primarily on the nineteenth century.
