African colonies. For the Portuguese ruling regime, the overseas empire was a matter of national interest. In the view of many Portuguese, a colonial empire was necessary to continued national power and influence. In contrast to Britain and France, Portuguese colonial settlers had extensively inter-married and assimilated within the colonies over a period of 400 years. Despite objections in world forums such as the United Nations, Portugal had long maintained that its African colonies were an integral part of Portugal, and felt obliged to militarily defend them against Communist-inspired armed groups, particularly after India's unilateral and forcible annexation of Portuguese exclaves Goa, Daman (Daman District, India) and Diu (Diu district) (Portuguese India), in 1961 (see Indian Invasion of Goa). thumb right Portuguese Air Force (File:AssaltonaMatadaSanga....jpg)'s helicopter operating in an African theatre during the Portuguese Colonial War. *In the Second World War, Portugal was neutral (Participants in World War II#Portugal) but the treaty was invoked by the Allies to establish bases on the Azores. *In 1961, during the invasion (Operation Vijay (1961)) of the Portuguese possessions (Portuguese India) of Goa, Daman and Diu by the Indian Union, Portugal sought the help of Britain to little effect. *During the 1982 Falklands War the facilities of the Azores were again offered to the Royal Navy. Expansion and territory The English East India Company (hereafter, the Company) was founded in 1600, as ''The Company of Merchants of London Trading into the East Indies''. It gained a foothold in India in 1612 after Mughal (Mughal Empire) emperor Jahangir granted it the rights to establish a factory (Factory (trading post)), or trading post, in the port of Surat on the western coast. In 1640, after receiving similar permission from the Vijayanagara ruler (Vijayanagara Empire) farther south, a second factory was established in Madras on the southeastern coast. Bombay island, not far from Surat, a former Portuguese outpost gifted to England (Kingdom of England) as dowry in the marriage of Catherine of Braganza to Charles II (Charles II of England), was leased by the Company in 1668. Two decades later, the Company established a presence on the eastern coast as well; far up that coast, in the Ganges river delta, a factory was set up in Calcutta. Since, during this time other ''companies''—established by the Portuguese (Portuguese India), Dutch (Dutch East India Company), French (French East India Company), and Danish (Danish East India Company)—were similarly expanding in the region, the English Company's unremarkable beginnings on coastal India offered no clues to what would become a lengthy presence on the Indian subcontinent. left thumb 250px India in 1765 and 1805 showing East India Company Territories (Image:India1765and1805b.jpg) '''Old Goa''' (Konkani (Konkani language):पोरणें गोंय – ''Pornnem Goem''; Hindi ओल्ड गोवा – ''Old Gova'', पुराणा गोवा – ''Purana Gova'') or '''Velha Goa''' (''Velha'' means "old" in Portuguese (Portuguese language)) is a historical city in North Goa district in the Indian state (States and territories of India) of Goa.
