RELIVING LIFE FROM THE JAWS OF DEATH by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - Oct 13, 2014
Today would have been my 6th death anniversary. On 13th October 2008 while I was relishing the famed Chicken Xacuti at the Ashok Restaurant in Panaji a gruesome attempt was made by an armed gang of seven who had come fully ready to dispatch me to heaven or maybe to hell. It was, however, a very incredible miraculous escape from the jaws of death. My time may have not
THE HARMONY OF UNITY IN DIVERSITY by Joao Barros-Pereira
Monday - Oct 13, 2014
Some people claim the renaming of a government college in Pernem after Sant Sohirobanath could damage relations between the various communities in Goa which are in harmony with one another. I'm sure neither the Hindus nor the Roman Catholics nor members of the other communities will vote for it. As the renaming of the government college as Sant Sohirobanath Ambiye is already
GOA NEEDS PEOPLE FRIENDLY GOVERNANCE by Jose Maria Miranda
Sunday - Oct 12, 2014
Rare are occasions when one is able to appreciate or praise a Government Department or Official for any good work done in the interest of the public. On the contrary, almost every day we read or hear criticism for their acts of omission or commission. To expect the authorities to act on their own even on issues that concern people’s lives or health is almost next to impossible.
HAS THE RULE OF LAW GONE FOR A TOSS? by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Oct 11, 2014
After Manohar Parrikar coming to power, Adv. Saresh Lotlikar through his RSS affiliation and proximity with the Chief Minister has managed to get himself appointed as Special Public Prosecutor in a long string of cases. What is however very objectionable and deplorable is that while he represents the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of the Goa Police in many cases Saresh Lotlikar
HERITAGE LOST WHEN OLAULIM CLUB WAS SOLD by Adriano Pinto
Saturday - Oct 11, 2014
We all like to make history or well live in it. Never did I think in my faintest imagination that my villagers would bury our history forever and together with it the hard work of our ancestors. It is with a heavy heart I write this with a hope this will live in posterity,
INDIAN JUDICIARY IN CRISIS? by Aires Rodrigues
Thursday - Oct 9, 2014
Justice R.M. Lodha who recently retired as the Chief Justice of India must be lauded for his firm decision not to seek or accept any post retirement posting from the Government. He has rightly expressed a very unyielding view that there must be at least a two year cooling period before any retired Judge of the Supreme Court or High Court takes up any constitutional post
A TIME TO FIGHT AND A TIME TO UNITE by Selma Carvalho
Wednesday - Oct 8, 2014
Throughout the campaign for the Scottish referendum, I wanted Scotland to vote Yes to independence. When friends asked me why it was so important to me, I mumbled a lie; it was the romance, I said, of a people claiming their own national identity which no amount of assimilation had managed to wipe clean. It was only partly a lie. The truth is, in my heart, I know what it is to be
MANOHAR PARRIKAR PROMOTING HIS FAMILY by Aires Rodrigues
Tuesday - Oct 7, 2014
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar swiftly on 4th March last year appointed his relative Kurupati Dwarkanath Row to the very high constitutional post as the Chairman of Goa Public Service Commission. Now the Goa Public Service Commission has selected Manohar Parrikar’s relative Mahesh Parrikar
OLD GOA BEING DESTROYED - BEAUTIFICATION BY MURDER UNCHECKED IN OLD GOA by Joel Lopes
Monday - Oct 6, 2014
While the battle to save the Viceroy's arch is going on, another piece of history has been murdered in Old Goa, very near to Bom Jesus Basilica. The historic walls of the Pre Portuguese Arsenal of Adilshah, which have been standing at the spot before the arrival of Albuquerque's fleet, have been razed to ground by the mighty claws of a monster called Bulldozer
INDIA AS AN IMPERIALIST COUNTRY By Robert Lindsay, California
Monday - Oct 6, 2014
I thought US imperialism was bad until I heard about Indian imperialism. India is obviously one of the imperialist countries. Even worse, like the early United Snakes, Zionist Israel, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, it has been conquering and annexing land since the day of its birth. I suppose one could argue that many new nations engage in a “Nation-Building Project” that involves
