TIATR OVER TIATR by Joel Morais
Wednesday - Aug 20, 2014
Goa is a different place with a different kind of open minded people. Goa has got its own different culture and for a Niz Goenkar first comes Goenkarponn and then their respective religion. A Niz Goenkar at no cost can turn out be a religious fanatic and we consider our Goenkarponn much higher and important than our respective religion.
THE METAPHOR OF GOA by Joao Barros-Pereira
Tuesday - Aug 19, 2014
Goa's first Chief Minister Dayanand Bandokar was a Goan whose vision was anti-Goan, and is that why we have a statue of his in the compound of the Goa Assembly? I love it as a metaphor for Goa and Goans as it highlights the ultimate Goan trait: self-destruction! Why do we choose to honour a man who did not want Goa to become an independent state? He wanted Goa to merge

IF WE HAD TAKEN VANMAHOTSAV SERIOUSLY by Ifa Saldanha
Sunday - Aug 17, 2014
If we had taken Vanmahotsav seriously Goa would remain forever green with health and natural wealth never diminishing. But what an irony! Though Vanmahotsav is officially celebrated for the last 60 years on the first week of July as initiated by the then union minister for agriculture Dr. K.M Munishi it was expected that Goa would be a thicket of assorted trees beautifully
THE GOA ILLEGAL MINING NATAK by Aires Rodrigues
Sunday - Aug 17, 2014
The stage managed drama on the current renewal of those 28 mining leases is there for all to see. While Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has yesterday publicly stated that the recent High Court order on the renewal of those leases would not be challenged, the Advocate General Atmaram Nadkarni yesterday itself has blurted diametrically opposite claiming that the High Court order
BELIEFS AND BELIEVERS by Joao Barros-Pereira
Sunday - Aug 17, 2014
The recent explosive statement of Dy CM Francis D'Sousa who said he was a Christian Hindu created an immediate imbroglio, as expected! The Dy CM soon found himself stumbling on one leg: his Hindu right leg was working okay, the other unfortunately was not! He later clarified his view by explaining he is a Christian in his religion and a Hindu in his culture
MUTHALIK, STOP THREATENING GOANS by Jose Maria Miranda
Sunday - Aug 17, 2014
India is the land of the Mahatma. Goa never had the privilege of being under direct influence of this great man, during his struggle to gain Independence for his country, though he had many admirers in this State. Yet, Goa shows the way to the rest of India in abiding by Gandhiji’s ideals and principles of non-violence and communal amity among all religious
THE CASE FOR JUDICIAL INDEPENDENCE by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Aug 16, 2014
On the eve of the 68th Independence Day the Narendra Modi government as expected has hit the last nail on the independence of the Judiciary by now giving the politicians a say in the appointment of Judges to the Supreme Court and the 24 High Courts across the country. Our country has seen some outstanding and refined Judges who have brought great honour and esteem to the temples of Justice
GOA: IS BJP'S PARRIKAR GOING TOO FAR IN OBSESSING OVER THE WORD 'HINDU'? by Mayabhushan Nagvenkar
Saturday - Aug 16, 2014
Goa’s most well-known politician, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar may have just stretched his obsession with the word Hindu a bit too far. Muslim clerics, Opposition politicians as well as Goan expats on social media have cried foul and accused Bharatiya Janata Party’s technocrat CM of expounding faulty geo-religious trivia, after Parrikar claimed that Non Resident Indians
DARK DAYS FOR GOA’S JUDICIARY by Aires Rodrigues
Thursday - Aug 14, 2014
Many have called asking for an update on the Judge U.V. Bakre episode. My job has ended with placing all the facts before the Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court Mohit Shah and the Chief Justice of India R.M. Lodha. The ball is now in their Court. There is absolutely no problem with a Judge attending a Puja but the quandary is with the Judge and his wife having graced that Puja as ‘Dampatya’
