A quest to learn more about his late uncle Bunnu takes the writer on a discovery of Goan life and culture in Karachi
When we were children, my cousins and I could have been forgiven for thinking that our great-uncle’s first name was “Poor". That, invariably, was how my grandmother and her sisters referred to their only brother each time he came up in conversation, which, admittedly, wasn’t often at all. “Ah, poor Bunnu," they’d sigh whenever someone mentioned their Cambridge-educated sibling who’d chosen to stay put in Karachi at Partition, even as the rest of the family pulled up their roots from the city in which they’d lived for four generations to take their chances in India.
