About Antu Sinai
When you run up your genealogical tree you will reach one Nuno Vaz. He was a son of Antu Sinai, the last Hindu in the line to be converted to Christianily. One other son took the surname Faria and became the ancestor of Abbe Faria, or Abade Faria in Portuguese. --Luis de Santa Rita Vas.
You should be particularly interested in two Goans who may be your relatives: Dharmanand D. Kosambi and his son, Damodar D. Kosambi. I seem to remember reading somewhere that they were the descendents of Antu Shenoy/Sinai who were not converted to Christianity. --Luis de Santa Rita Vas
