Portuguese’ Konkani connection

Bother, returned from Portuguese dominated region of Brazil, recounted innumerable stories that explains Portuguese’s distinctly similar behavior with Konkanis. These stories have confirmed my long held belief that Portuguese are in all possibility genetically closer to konkanis.

One such oft-repeated experience: For the party, socialites Brazilians call everyone, but with the condition that each one should bring food and drink from home. In canteen, they will pay for the only stuff they have consumed. And in the food, Portuguese-Brazilians prefer everything sans chilly, with sweet-sour dal (amti).
