Reviewing the history of Indo-Portuguese relations, we have moved from the first phase of Christianizing karma and tropicalizing Christianity, to the second phase when Portugal faced the inevitable process of decolonization. It was unable to put into practice the luso-tropicalist strategy that came too late to mend the colonial relations that had been marked by disinterest and disrespect for Goa’s traditional culture. We are now witnessing a more pragmatic definition of Lusofonia, which Fernando Santos Neves, founder Rector of the largest private University of Portugal, Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias ( Lisboa) and a leading Portuguese promoter of postcolonial Lusophony, formulates as having nothing to do with any veiled form of postcolonial domination. Portugal has recognized its new place in the postcolonial order and wishes that historic links are used for the common benefit and development of the Lusosphere. It implies that despite failures and mistakes, shared history has much that can bring us together to face common challenges and build a better future.
