LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER NARENDRA MODI by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - May 31, 2014
Greetings from Goa! I may have not supported you during the recent Lok Sabha elections as I had my very strong reservations about you becoming our Prime Minister. None the less, may I congratulate you on your historic victory. You are now India’s Prime Minister, our Prime Minister and my Prime Minister
FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION: QUO VADIS by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - May 31, 2014
While the thrust of the Narendra Modi government is on minimum government and maximum governance, all of a sudden in Goa given birth to is a ill-conceived group of quadruplets “Social Media Not a Forum to Spread Hatred” who very high handedly claim that their task will be to track and monitor everything that is said on social networking sites including Face book while also warning
THE VICIOUS AND IGNORANT PARRIKAR by Tucarama Naique
Friday - May 30, 2014
This Parrikar exposes to the world how IGNORANT he is. Inspite of having studied in a Jesuit school ie. Loyola High School, he makes public statement against his own 'Alma Mater' organisation with false and vicious intentions. It is deplorable that an educated Goan in Parrikar can turn into such a scum of society! For Parrikar's information, Fr. Cedric Prakash is a Human Rights
PATH OF REVENGE STARTED BY BJP AS EXPECTED by Tulshidas Shirodkar
Friday - May 30, 2014
"As expected the BJP's revenge path has started with full throttle. Poor chap Devu Chodankar is the victim of communal & fascist BJP chamchas like Atul Pai Kane who prides himself as a great personality of Goa; infact he is a rubbish guy. Atul is a chidlhood friend of Manohar Parrikar; probably they studied in
IS THIS THE GOOD GOVERNANCE? by Aires Rodrigues
Thursday - May 29, 2014
One of the parameters in judging a government on good governance is the maximum utilization of all available resources including its manpower. It is very appalling that several government officers in Goa are without posting and are drawing their salaries without working
Wednesday - May 28, 2014
A rule exists in Goa that if there is 100 sq metre land and you want to construct a building you can build only on 40 sq metres and leave 60 metres as open space. When a builder prepares to build a building a clear plan is placed before the authorities. This plan is approved by the concern authority and a building is constructed. A rosy building is drawn before the public who are enticed
SMRITI IRANI: A MODI-FIED LEADER? by Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - May 28, 2014
India’s newly anointed Minister for Human Resource Development Smriti Irani besides being the youngest in the 45 member Narendra Modi Ministerial team is perhaps also the least educated being a non-graduate. The silver lining however for 38 year old Smriti Irani is that her name does not figure in that hall of
GOA SHOULD ALSO HAVE A COMPACT CABINET by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - May 26, 2014
If Prime Minister Narendra Modi truly delivers on his mantra of “less government and more governance” our great country may reach bigger heights. Downsizing the cabinet and also trimming the over bloated bureaucracy is the way ahead. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had made a similar assurance of
Sunday - May 25, 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. However, our inherent peaceful and sanitised fabric shielded such vitriol like an airbag in a car crash. But social media especially Facebook was the parking ground for a lot of this residual
LET THERE BE FLOWERS Courtesy Outlook
Sunday - May 25, 2014
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
