-In 1954 the Government of India decided to impose an economic blockade on Goa in the hope that the Portuguese would yield to the pressure and surrender. They didn’t. The Management had no alternatives. The Mandovi which had a long standing commitment to service and quality, and had to devise numerous new ways to live up to it, answers were found by scanning the world, the meat used to come from nearby Belgaum, the steaks from South Africa and Argentina, the oranges came from Israel. Potatoes from Holland, Cavier kept coming from Russia, Champagne from France. But the apples came from Japan. The Japanese had just about then gone for apple culture in a big way. There was tension in the air. What was going to happen next? An armed revolt? A war? The Portuguese Governor General and his entourage and anybody who was somebody dropped by, nearly every other day, to relax. The men played bridge, and the ladies, generally, canasta. There was a special lounge for them, and served them, as ever, with a smile, the best of everything: spirits, beverages, snacks, cigars and cigarillos.
Then, on 19th December, 1961, Goa was liberated. Suddenly, old order had yielded to new. The use of force by India to oust the Portuguese had aroused worldwide interest. Every single international paper and magazine, radio and TV network dispatched their correspondents to Goa. Ambassadors from nearly every country came to see and gauge the situation. We had just one telephone operator and just one instrument. And the exchange was manual…. Calls to all over, to all the capitals of the world, were demanded by the impatient media persons. It was, to put it equanimously, a trying time but the effort was highly appreciated, in an unexpected manner, a guest told the reception that he wanted to meet the telephone operator and, having been introduced to the overworked girl, he kissed her on both the cheeks, much to her embarrassment. “You are simply stupendous”, he said. She would later realize that the man was Octavio Paz, the Mexican ambassador to India, who then went on to win the Nobel Prize for literature.
