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. Bakre had committed a grave judicial impropriety

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

CHIEF MINISTER MANOHAR PARRIKAR BLACKMAILING JUDGES by Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - Aug 20, 2014
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s contumacious comments on the poor legal acumen of judges is highly deplorable. The most inappropriate broadside launched by Manohar Parrikar against the orders passed by some judges is in utter bad taste and highly condemnable. He is obviously trying to high-highhandedly blackmail and intimidate Judges into submission
TIATR OVER TIATR by Joel Morais

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
