Hi, my name is William Lopes, born in Mandali, Nandakhal. I started this site years back initially as Geocities site then on to hosting it myself. My purpose of this site is to provide visitors to this site information about Vasai, its rich history and about the people that live there. We as people of Vasai are threatened of losing our cultural identity by the influx of people from other parts of the country who don’t necessarily respect our culture. There is also a tendency among the people of Vasai to “Go mainstream” and lose our identity, which is a shame. To lose our culture, our heritage is to lose our soul as a distinct society that has survived hundreds of years. This site is my small contribution to people of Vasai to remind them who we are and to visitors to provide a glimpse into culture of Vasai.
