This research approaches the last few years of Portuguese India, before its incorporation into the Indian Union, in December 1961. In 1948, the goan intellectual Telo de Mascarenhas returns from Portugal to India, where he published, during the 1950s, a nationalistic journal: the Ressurge, Gôa!. Gilberto Freyre¿s travel to Goa in 1951-1952 was addressed by this journal, and will be also discussed here. Believing in different futures to Goa ¿ Gilberto Freyre believed that Goa would be, forever, luso-indian, while Telo de Mascarenhas argued that it would be inevitably Indian ¿ is the portuguese geographer Orlando Ribeiro who described, with more details, the indecision regarding to what he considered a future of uncertainties. The reading of these three author aims to discuss the place of national discourse in their respective works (AU)
