The Soul Of Heart-Broken Karyakarta Shekar Sawant Will Always Haunt Parrikar – by Aires Rodrigues
Sunday - Aug 20, 2017
Flowing from the chimney are instances how over the years Manohar Parrikar egoistically hurt and let down a lot of innocent souls. Like toilet paper he has disrespectfully rubbed, scrubbed and thrown away many whom he selfishly used. One of them is Shekar Narayan Sawant who for over 15 long years was Manohar Parrikar’s very die-hard Karyakarta who actively toiled
Panjimites And Ribandarites Vote For Honesty – by Tennyson Xavier Fernandes
Sunday - Aug 20, 2017
A few days ago, Gangadhar working as a security guard at RBL Bank Anna Nagar branch in Chennai, Tamil Nadu demonstrated that he is a practitioner of honesty by returning a Rs.500 currency note to the customer who had dropped it outside the ATM. India is a land of beautiful minds and hearts. I am sure that there will many more honest sons and daughters of Mother India like Gangadhar for whom character is the crown of life and honesty is the crown of character itself.

Recently, while speaking on the floor of the legislative assembly, the Chief Minister of Goa Manohar Parrikar stated that when he was talking to a college student some years ago, he made a statement that he does not believe in honesty as the best policy. When the student was surprised by his statement, Manohar Parrikar stated that he explained to the student that since a policy can change

Well fellow Goenkars, the Goan Festival London 2017 is over, the ground is cleared and the videos are out! Appears to be well organised with litter under control separate entrance for foot patrons and one for vehicles these being main collection gate points for revenue. The catering stalls looked neat and professional. Personally I was expecting to see thousands of youngsters wearing
Manohar Parrikar Dubbed A Chronic Liar By Even His Guru Subhash Velingkar – by Aires Rodrigues
Friday - Aug 18, 2017
On August 7th 2008 Manohar Parrikar while in the Opposition had publicly stated that it would be worthwhile to shift the Navy out from Dabolim and again on 30th May 2013 he reiterated that the Navy could be shifted to allow Dabolim become a full-fledged civilian Airport. While in the Opposition Manohar Parrikar had also repeatedly demanded that land including that in Panjim given
Valpoi & Panjim: A Tale Of Two Constituencies – by Nixon Fernandes
Friday - Aug 18, 2017
People of both these constituencies will decide the fate of two heavyweights (Parrikar & Vishwajeet) in a week’s time. A smear campaign is launched by BJP and its allies to term the opposite candidate as outsiders. Now one needs to carefully understand the term outsider here if a Goan is called as outsider in their own land then what about the migrants that have spread across

Successive governments in power could easily have met the infrastructure to have an independent High Court of the State of Goa. But some politicians who want to abuse the judiciary and make mockery of our legal system have deliberately avoided to getting the same approved from the centre. The present situation serves the interest of politicians who can lay the blame squarely on the judiciary
Asthami Stalls Demolished By CCP Without Refund? – by Stephen Dias, Dona Paula
Friday - Aug 18, 2017
I have interviewed main leaders from the stalls of Asthami fair and gave me the impression that that they have been cheated by Parrikar, Mayor Furtado, Commissioner Dipak Naik and Sidharth. Their traditional yearly business appears thst it has gone on drain. They say bad words to all of them. Today 18th Aug
Does Goa’s Governor Come Before God? – by Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - Aug 16, 2017
I pen these few lines with a very very heavy heart. I wish that I didn’t have one, as in today’s world, one is better off without one. Yesterday was Dependence rather than Independence Day, Goa having witnessed a very unpriestly misdemeanour at a time when the country is shunning the very obnoxious culture

Tuesday - Aug 15, 2017
My Ford EcoSport Titanium aka "Virginia" is all packed n bagged for yet another drive to Goa (22 in 26 months) early morning 2moro Friday 11/8 at 4.30 am. Amol Dabholkar is my navigator and yours truly is d driver. It will be fun to belt down d Mumbai-Pune Expressway and thereafter, at God's speed of 120 touching 150 with a view to cover the distance of about 675 kms in a span of 9 hours, rain permitting. It would take mostly nearly a month, if not more for others to even think of going home which Floriano did on 2/8 to celebrate his 70th birthday!

My first stop on reaching Goa will be Moira, to hug and kiss my dear brother, Floriano Lobo of Goa Su-Raj fame who has come out of a worst and most complicated cardiac double bypass surgery in the last 3 weeks. Today, I stand vindicated that it is ONLY my recommende
Eyeing Their Land, Will Govt Abolish Comunidades? – by Jose Maria Miranda
Saturday - Aug 12, 2017
Recently, in the Legislative Assembly, Pratap Singh Rane expressed the view that the Government should not be sentimental about Comunidades, as “sentiment means loss” and that “these old institutions have lived beyond their time”. He added that except for a few Comunidades, which have valuable land, most others, having just paddy fields, are making losses. Sixty-eight out of 90 Comunidades declared zero income for 2015-16 and only 21 distributed jonos in the last three years.

Though the terms of reference of the Committee were to examine the Code of Comunidades from the “point of view of present socio-economic situation and make suitable suggestions to the said Code”, the Committee, exceeding its brief, opined on the sustainability of the Comunidades due to further depletion of 25% of income being utilized for administrative expenses
