A pioneering group of Luso Indian medical doctors played an important role in Western medicine in nineteenth-century Bombay when the Grant Medical College provided them a springboard for entry into the medical services of colonial Bombay. Who were these medicos? What was the intellectual milieu in Bombay during the nineteenth century? Did women play any role in the field? The author digs up a forgotten, or unrecognised past.
