    Mr. Max Rasquinha, Wow a great person. I met mr Rasquinha the year 1995 in Bahrain when he was here for Bahrain Oil show. He was General Secretary of karnataka sports club - Bahrain in 1960's, and during his time in Bahrain he took cricket team of the club to Kuwait, he was also a good konkani actor and during his time in Bahrain he acted and directed 4 Konkani Dramas.

    Though our meeting with him along with Mr. Vallie Prabhu the president of karnataka Social Club then, I really admired his intelligent talks and some of his adventurous work he has done in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.I wish him good luck. Ronald - Bahrain
