Time To Wind Up The Zilla Panchayats by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - Jan 19, 2015
The Goa Government should seriously ponder on whether to continue with the Zilla Panchayats. It will cost the tax payer around a whopping two crores to conduct those next elections which are now due in March. Infact for a very small State like Goa there was no justification to set up the Zilla Panchayats which have proven to be only an unnecessary financial burden which a cash strapped
The Prolific Konkani Knight by Gauree Malkarnekar
Monday - Jan 19, 2015
Born to parents with meagre resources, brought up with an education in Marathi and having spent his early years as a cowherd in the hills of Volvoi in central Goa, Pundalik Naik probably had the most unlikely beginnings for a celebrated Konkani writer who has earned the rare honour of being conferred both, the Sahitya Akademi Award and the Sangeet Natak Academy Award

There Is Much We Need To Learn From Others by Jose Maria Miranda
Saturday - Jan 17, 2015
Irrespective of how old or how young one is, we have always something to learn from nature or from our fellow beings. Often, we need to even learn from our own children. Age does give us experience, but not always wisdom. The more we are open to listening and to correction, the more we learn
CCP Needs To Give Clarification On Accounts Of Carnival 2014 by Stephen Dias, Dona Paula
Saturday - Jan 17, 2015
I have read letter by Joaquim Teles in Herald dt 17th Jan 2015 and found there is some fishy thing in that letter. I have addressed this letter to all the Editors because I am sure that the reply of mine will not be entertained by Herald. My question to the writer Joaquim Teles for his letter titled " Where are the accounts of Panjim Carnival 2014?"
Goa’s Tourism Industry In Despair by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Jan 17, 2015
The backbone of Goa’s economy, the Tourism trade is in total shambles and doldrums. Unless some concrete steps are taken it may be extremely intricate for the industry to recover from the current crisis. Instead of ensuring that the crumbling infrastructure here is first enhanced, the government delegations have been merrily jetting around the globe on junkets squandering crores of tax payer’s

I refer to the article in Herald titled ‘Church vandalised in Delhi... ’ This is the third attack on a Catholic Church that too in the capital city. During Christmas Week the Christmas crib of another church was burnt but till today the culprits have not been brought to book. Where were the police when this happened? The chief of Delhi police is perhaps kept busy investigating the ' Tharoor-
Manohar Parrikar Fooled Goans by Arwin Mesquita, Colva
Friday - Jan 16, 2015
The recent statement from Goa CM Laxmikant Parsekar that it will be difficult to get Special Status for Goa, sort of let ' the cat out of the bag'. Is it not obvious, that Manohar Parrikar was actually fooling Goans on this key election promise, as we know that he has also fooled us on many other key issues. Surely Parrikar would also have been aware of the same a long time back.
Linking Government Hospitals Required by Stephen Dias, Dona Paula
Friday - Jan 16, 2015
The Government of Goa is planning for e-governance at various government departments so that the public is not put into inconvenience. It so happen that one patient who was suspected of Tuberculosis at TB –Hospital, St Ines (Batlem), was sent for an X-Ray to be done at GMC Bambolim with a requisition slip. When this lady went to GMC for the X-Ray, she was asked first to get
Christians Are Fair Game In India by Justice Katju
Friday - Jan 16, 2015
On the front page of Times of India today is the tall claim that India's economic growth will catch up with China's in 2 years. This claim goes beautifully along with another news item published just next to it, stating that in 6 weeks the 4th Church in Delhi has been vandalised. It seems that
