I read with some concern the news that the Government of Goa is officially celebrating the tercentenary of the birth of Sant Sohirobanath Ambiye. Towards this end, the government has chosen to rename the Government College in Pernem Sant Sohirobanath Ambiye College of Art and Commerce, publish a compilation of his works, as well as establish a chair in his name at Goa University

Monday - Aug 25, 2014
Many people in Goa and particularly in Salcete seem to have been unreasonably overjoyed over the local Government’s decision to ban Mutalik and his Ram Sene from entering our State. Shantaram Naik, Rajya Sabha MP and a lawyer by profession has, however, said that the order has no teeth and can at the most be in force for two plus six months

Our old habits and customs whenever we used to attend the exposition of St Francis Xavier at Old Goa all those years, is to pray and burn the candles at the feet of our Saint .

The decision by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to ban the sale of liquor at Old Goa during the ensuing 44 day exposition of the relicts of St Francis Xavier which begins on November 22nd is very high handed, uncalled for and unjustified.

Thursday - Aug 21, 2014
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has today tried to defend the very high fees being paid to the very controversial Atmaram Nadkarni making him the highest paid Advocate General besides India’s highest paid public servant as well.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar besides being an IIT has also mastery in trying to fish in troubled waters. He must be longing to carve and create an occasion to corner me. Much as he may have liked, but I have done absolutely nothing wrong in writing to the Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court and to the Chief Justice of India that Justice U.V.

The Goan character is rooted in paradox. The Goan is a practical dreamer with an ear for music and a nose for pork chops. Caste-ridden at home, he is a cosmopolitan abroad, at ease in the capitals of the world, possessed of a savoir vivre, which is the envy and despair of culture-snobs elsewhere. This tension of opposites in the Goan gives him a vital, flamelike quality, which marks him out as a man among men
