Answer :

Brazil was ruled by the imperial power of the Kingdom of Portugal. On 22nd April in 1500, the Portuguese naval fleet arrived on the shores of Brazil. Colonization began officially, in 1534 when King John III divided Brazil into 15 parts. He appointed a Governer to control entire colony in 1549. Brazil became independent from the Portuguese on 7th September 1822.


India gained independence from British rule on 15th August 1947, but some parts of India were still suffering from colonial rule. One of these parts was Goa, which was still under Portuguese control. Goa gained independence from Portugal on December 19th, in 1961. The fight for the freedom of Goa began on June 18th, 1946 when Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia defied the ban on public meetings which was imposed by the Portuguese government. This launched the first civil disobedience movement which inspired others to fight for freedom of Goa.
