- POSKEM - Goans in the Shadows
DetailsGoans are presently experiencing the last generation of Poskim - young children taken in by wealthy families and retained most often as servants.In a narrative that spans Portuguese Goa to post the liberation of India's golden state, Poskem: Goans in the Shadows takes the reader to locales from Bombay to Lyon, Pune to Paris and into the world of the Poskim people and Goan recipes.Through happiness and hope, despair and delusion, Rodricks writes of an unspoken, unheard of and shamefully silenced world of the last generation of a people that would soon be forgotten but for this book preserving their story for posterity.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: WENDELL RODRICKS has put the tiny Indian state of Goa firmly on the fashion map. Establishing his own label in 1990, he moved to his ancestral village in Goa in 1993, creating memorable collections each season, inspired by many emotions: Tibetan monasteries, tribal symbols of Shiva and Vishnu, the Harem at Istanbul, tattoos of the Lambadi tribe, among others. Wendell Rodricks has authored two books, Moda Goa: History and Style, on the history of Goan costumes and his memoirs, the Green Room.ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: MARIO JOAO CARLOS DO ROSARIO DE BRITO MIRANDA, popularly known as Mario Miranda or Mario de Miranda, was an Indian cartoonist and painter based in Loutolim in the Indian state of Goa.
