CAN GOANS EVER EXPECT GOOD GOVERNANCE? by Jose Maria Miranda
Monday - Jul 14, 2014
Surely ruling a State, however, small it may be, is not an easy task. Still more difficult is providing the people with good governance. This is not alone because there is no unanimity even amongst us, leave alone the rulers, as to what constitutes good governance. It is primarily because there is no will on

COMBATING INJUSTICE by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Jul 12, 2014
No injustice whatsoever can be allowed. The government and the Chief Minister in particular are duty bound to crack down with an iron hand by nipping in the bud any unfairness. The government cannot remain a mere spectator and only rise from slumber after allowing the pain and agony of injustice to escalate
NO PEDAS AT ALVA’S SWEARING IN CEREMONY by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - Jul 12, 2014
As the Leader of Opposition Manohar Parrikar had repeatedly accused the then AICC General Secretary Margaret Alva of being very corrupt and had on several times demanded a CBI probe against her. But now he has no choice but to embrace her as his Goa Governor despite the BJP at the centre. For Manohar Parrrikar after all those brickbats it will now be greeting and bowing down to Margaret Alva with flowers
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION UNDER THREAT? by Jose Maria Miranda
Saturday - Jul 12, 2014
The media is surely a powerful weapon that can, at times, compel Governments to reverse their improper or wrong decisions, which would have otherwise been adamantly pushed through.

CULTURE VULTURES by Joao Barros-Pereira
Thursday - Jul 10, 2014
With the greatest of respect to Shakespeare, to chuddies or to bikini is the question! As for me, an ordinary man living an ordinary life, I must confess bikinis are my preference as they are a suitable beach wear while chuddis belong in the bathroom and bedroom.
AN ATROCIOUS MOVE BY PRIME MINISTER NARENDRA MODI by Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - Jul 9, 2014
Revenge, retribution and witch-hunting should never be an integral agenda of any government. But shunting off the 87 year old Gujarat Governor Dr Kamla Beniwal over 3000 kms away to Mizoram only shows to what levels the Narendra Modi government is ready to stoop. That she is being tossed around though having
A PEOPLE’S GOVERNOR DEPARTS by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - Jul 7, 2014
Today after having served Goa distinguishably as Governor for just over two years BV Wanchoo takes the flight out of Goa. The very shoddy manner in which the NDA government virtually evicted him out of office is outrageous. For a person of his caliber, integrity and competence BV Wanchoo did not deserve to
