It was quite shocking but not surprising to learn that Bio-Diversity Board Member Secretary Dr Nitin Sawant is on his way out. It is not shocking because Dr Sawant is an upright, honest, qualified and disciplined officer, who does understand the consequences of manmade disasters and who has worked hard according to his conscience, to safeguard the interests of Goans at large, especially the conservation of marine life
A Failed Dream by Aires Rodrigues
Friday - Jul 31, 2015
On 2nd October it will be a year that the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was launched amidst much fanfare. High expectations were raised but the cleanliness drive has however remained a paper tiger ending up being a total failure as garbage continues to be accumulated everywhere, making one wonder whether the motives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi were only purely political

Bharati ‘Dadagiri’ Thru Defiance by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim
Thursday - Jul 30, 2015
The entry of Bharat into my un-Bharati Goa was by force and thru “dadagiri” and the same Bharati dadagiri is still going on over my Goa and if nothing can be done by the combined might of all genuine Goans to stop this Bharati dadagiri, then this Bharati dadagiri will go on till Goa

I have always refused to plunge into the MOI controversy but hoped and prayed all along that an amicable solution would be found. To this extent Union Defence Minister Parrikar did come out with some via media. All that the Church demanded and continues to demand is that the resolution be enacted and given enough legal sanctity. But that never happened because just as many had predicted, the Church
When The Law Minister Did Not Uphold The Law by Aires Rodrigues
Tuesday - Jul 28, 2015
The cowboy style high-handed and illegal outing to Sada jail yesterday led by Deputy Chief Minister Francis D’Souza to see their convicted colleague Nuvem MLA Mickky Pacheco was outrageous and needs to be condemned as it has sent a wrong message to the law abiding citizens
Goa, The Portuguese And India - By Adv. Antionio Lobo
Sunday - Jul 26, 2015
The debate over the visit of NRP Sagres to Goa and the simultaneous protest of some 30 or less BJP/RSS/FF protesters is to be viewed also in the context of the send off given to the very same ship by a flotilla of fisherman from Vasco, people who decided to discard the vacuous and false propaganda of the so-called Freedom Fighters such as Karmali et al as well as what is taught today
The Brave Kapil Natekar by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Jul 25, 2015
Over the last nine years we have heard of Kapil Natekar, but for many including myself it is seeing his photograph for the first time. On July 15th 2006 the then Animal Husbandry Minister Mickky Pacheco slapped Electricity department Junior Engineer Kapil Natekar. Possibly because Kapil Natekar was not from an affluent family, the police right from the start tried to hush
Quo Vadis, BJP? by Jose Maria Miranda
Saturday - Jul 25, 2015
Corruption is a subject that is being debated everywhere. Anyone could write or speak volumes on the corruption he/she has seen, heard about or experienced. Cancer may find a cure some day and the researcher may even get a Nobel Prize for the great achievement. But finding a cure for the cancer of corruption will perhaps remain only a very distant dream for the people of this country
For Whom The Bell Tolls by Joao Barros-Pereira
Saturday - Jul 25, 2015
Goa's churches and temple bells have a mournful cadence these days. Every morning the bells appear to be announcing the death of our villages where the heart of Goa resides and is an important part of our Goan identity. Do Goa's villages have a future? Four villages we've been recently informed have been selected as model villages, their character we are assured will remain unchanged for future generations
