POLITICS AND POLITICAL by Peter Fernandes
Tuesday - Jun 17, 2014

ARE SOME ABOVE THE LAW? by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - Jun 16, 2014
The Supreme Court of India has time and again envisaged and directed that the Police should be totally insulated from any political interference and that the Prosecution too should be independent in its functioning. Today the Goa police and the Prosecution lack freedom in discharging their duties. The Police and the Prosecution have been functioning as caged parrots at the dictates and on the directions of the politicians in power
COITUS INTERRUPTUS: A SPOILSPORT? by Joao Barros Pereira
Monday - Jun 16, 2014
Congratulations are appropriate for a wonderful headline in a Goan publication which had me running to the Internet dictionary to look up coitus interruptus as my Greek is zero and my Latin even less, and was I surprised to read the definition: sexual intercourse in which the penis is withdrawn before

Sunday - Jun 15, 2014
Despite Goa having so many Senior and very experienced advocates, as expected the flamboyant Advocate General Atmaram Nadkarni has managed to manipulate and elevate his inexperienced side kick Dattaprasad Prabhu Lawande as the Assistant Solicitor General. By anointing his man Friday and errand boy to the coveted post, Atmaram Nadkarni will now hope to manage and have full control in the High Court.

GOA, LISBON, ZURICH by Rajan Parrikar
Sunday - Jun 15, 2014
The euphoria following Narendra Modi's emphatic victory has subsided but not before revealing once again a couple of key national traits of Indians: mistaking words for action and a paper plan for actual results, and the hungering for a Messiah. Am I glad that Modi is Prime Minister?
STOP WASTE OF PUBLIC FUNDS by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Jun 14, 2014
Every government should demonstrate a very high level of transparency and accountability by the judicious use of public funds. Every paisa from the State exchequer has to be cautiously spent.

The din of the general elections 2014 is over with the Narendra Modi-led BJP getting a resounding majority. At this time it is important for us to assess the true intrinsic worth of the democratic process of our elections. The overall voter turnout at 64% in these elections was higher than the past elections. The Election Commission needs to be given credit for this for enlarging the voter base and making them come to the polling booths on voting day

Thursday - Jun 12, 2014
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s diktat to all his Ministers to declare their assets and liabilities and that of their family members by 31st August every year is a step in the right direction.
