Monday - May 26, 2014

The chat was one of the many intense ones during the run up to the elections where, whether we admit it or not, Goa had become completely polarised and yes communal and this cut across religious lines.

Our driver looks a trifle bemused when we ask him to take us to Fulancho Khuris in Bambolim. That isn’t where the tourists go. They go to the beaches, the casinos, the cafes. The more religiously inclined visit the iconic church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception in capital Panjim’s main squ­are. Others place their petitions by the relics of St Francis Xavier at the Basilica of Bom Jesus

Saturday - May 24, 2014
It is in the DNA of humanity to aspire to capture what is beyond the horizon.

Guidelines need to be formulated as to who can be appointed as Governor of the State to ensure that the High office is not open to political misuse. There should be a consensus amongst all political parties that only persons with proven skills of governance and administrative acumen be posted as Governors.
