A TOURISM MINISTER WHO WILL NOT SPARE EVEN THE SAINTS by Aires Rodrigues
Wednesday - Jun 4, 2014
Goa Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar’s devious plan to squander a whopping over four crores by way of road shows in Europe to create awareness and attract tourists for the decennial exposition of the body of St Francis Xavier scheduled to begin in December 2014 is a very flawed move.
JUDGES SHOULD ALWAYS BE JUST AND NEVER TILTED OR SPINELESS by Aires Rodrigues
Tuesday - Jun 3, 2014
For the Judiciary to be able to deliver where the government fails there should be no political interference in the appointment and promotion of Judges. The political executive should have no say whatsoever. The Judiciary should not be manned by persons who are slanted or aligned to any political party.

Monday - Jun 2, 2014
On Saturday May 31st the North Goa MP and Union Tourism Minister Shripad Naik hosted a thanks giving dinner at a Panjim starred hotel for his BJP Ministers, MLA’s and party office bearers.

IS FREEDOM OF THE PRESS IN JEOPARDY? by Aires Rodrigues
Sunday - Jun 1, 2014
Over the last few years every little hike in diesel and petrol prices was splashed as front page news. Surprisingly Narendra Modi government’s last night’s hike of diesel rates by 50 paisa a litre has conspicuously not been highlighted in most of the newspapers. Of recent we have witnessed most of the fourth estate Modi-fied, but does it today only confirm that the press is indeed
CYBERSPACE CULTURE: MORALS, MORES AND MANNERS by Joao Barros-Pereira
Sunday - Jun 1, 2014
The misuse and abuse of social media and the like is what we have gotten used to over the years. Idiots abound who attack the messenger rather than the message. A few websites are an embarrassment to Goans where uncouth people vent their anger and frustration, often deliberately misreading what has been

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.

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
