Whenever I read the newspapers and there is a story about asking a minister to resign, it is invariably the Minister of Environment Alina Saldhana. Why is it so? Is it because she is a woman and in power? It is a sad reflection on the Indian male mindset in the media, Goan or non-Goan. Why pick on her? Easy target? The latest is the issue of special status for Goa which she said she supported

Saturday - Aug 2, 2014
When he assumed office on 9th March 2012, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had rightly pointed out that Goa’s exploding population needed to be frozen.

‘FASCISM’ : SOME CHARACTERISTICS! By Fr. Cedric Prakash SJ
Thursday - Jul 31, 2014
‘Fascism’ is best described as a kind of “radical authoritarian nationalism” which saw its roots in the early 20th century of Europe.

In the wake of neo-fascist trends emerging in
A DOUBLE FACED MANOHAR PARRIKAR By Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - Jul 30, 2014
While as the Leader of Opposition Manohar Parrikar wanted and exercised all his democratic rights. He squatted on the highways blocking the traffic and had even threatened to gate crash to drive away the Casinos parked in the River Mandovi. Now that he is in power, he cannot see his own earlier acts as being holy. Now he wants every Goan to be at his best behavior and silently

GOA’S HERITAGE PALACES TURNING TO INDIAN SLUMS By Tucarama Naique
Tuesday - Jul 29, 2014
It is such a shame and insulting to see this panorama in the Capital city of Goa, Panjim! The Marquinez Palace is being defiled by uncivilized Indians as a Ghantti shanty! Can we Goans tolerate this? Our Heritage needs to be respected, both by Goans as well as the Government in power. Has the present ruling Parrikar government allowed the Palace to be inhabited by ‘Ghanttis’?
