Angelo da Fonseca: As recounted by his daughter

By Savia Viegas

Issue no. 12

Back in the car, Yessonda reminisced about her father Angelo da Fonseca.  A Gandhi cap, block-printed shirts and kolhapuris were his signature clothing. The bicycle was his only mode of transport. She followed him in all that he did during the day: shopped for vegetables, fish, cooked, dug around their little garden and painted. Fonseca was very much a man about the house; he liked to tidy-up, iron his clothes, cook – and dance he was a natural dancer.
