UNDERDEVELOPED MINING INDUSTRY? by Joao Barros-Pereira
Tuesday - Sep 10, 2013
Goa is fortunate to have a wealth of mineral resources which we have been exporting in the past mostly to Japan, and more recently, to China. We are also fortunate to have a chief minister who is an IITian with a degree in metallurgy. He can show the way to the backward mining industry by developing it, by taking it beyond simply extracting the iron ore and exporting it to foreign shores
ICG TAKES A U TURN by Aires Rodrigues
Tuesday - Sep 10, 2013
In a U turn the International Centre Goa (ICG) has now taken a stand that it is not a “Public Authority” and so does not come under the purview of the Right to Information Act. Very ironically, the Director of ICG is Nandini Sahai, the flamboyant very recent former President of the Goa RTI Forum who lately was

President of India Mr. Pranab Mukherjee has been urged not to accept the resignation of Leena Mehendale as member of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT).

TRIVIALIZING SEXUAL ASSAULTS by Jose Maria Miranda
Monday - Sep 9, 2013
In my last article I had lamented that the honest and upright had no place in this country. Equally unfortunate is that, in this country, not everyone is equal before the law. Favouritism and nepotism are rampant. Even in cases of crimes, where our leaders proclaim that the “law will take its own course”
HOW TO SUCCEED – Part 10 by Francis Sequeira
Monday - Sep 9, 2013
As we look back in introspection we may come across missed opportunities, which we failed to grab but later on regretted for not doing so. We have been looking at the future, which has become the present today, with lot of anxiety. The world has not come to an end today and will not come to an end for the coming millenniums. We have realised our follies of the past today and we
GOA HAS BECOME A CRIME HEAVEN by Adv. Aires Rodrigues
Monday - Sep 9, 2013
Law and order is key to the prosperity and well being of any society. A small state like Goa could have maintained its peace and tranquility but the current ground realities are a matter of great concern. With no corrective steps being taken we have almost reached a point of no return
NEITHER BJP NOR CONGRESS INTERESTED IN PROTECTING GOA AND GOANS by Jose Maria Miranda
Sunday - Sep 8, 2013
Former Union Minister, Mr. Eduardo Faleiro in an interview to the Navhind Times (NT 27/8/13) on Special Status for Goa spoke of various ways and means of protecting our land and our people without waiting for the nod of 2/3 of Members of Parliament to amend Art. 371, which Goans should not expect to happen, as similar demands will be made by other States too. In fact a private Member’s
CULTURE & IDENTITY by Joao Barros-Pereira
Sunday - Sep 8, 2013
A lot has already been said in the media about the influence of Hindu culture on Goan Roman Catholics, so I'd like to keep this comment short and say it is true! However, please note, Goan Roman Catholic secular culture is also similar to Brazilian: carnival, dancing, food, a drinking culture, and so on. Add to
ADVOCATE GENERAL ATMARAM NADKARNI MUST GO by Adv. Aires Rodrigues
Sunday - Sep 8, 2013
Despite a week having elapsed since that infamous Supreme Court judgement on the NEET issue pertaining to the post graduate students at the Goa Medical College, the Advocate General of Goa Atmaram Nadkarni has yet not put in his papers. Such heavy and loaded language in which the Goa Government has been rigorously castigated and rightly ridiculed has never been heard of
NEPOTISM IN EDUCATION by Jose Maria Miranda
Sunday - Sep 8, 2013
The stupid decision of the Parrikar Government to deprive students who had qualified for PG Medical Courses after passing the NEET test reached the Apex Court, which gave relief to the beleaguered students. The Court lambasted the Government headed by perhaps the most intelligent and most qualified Indian Chief Minister and passed severe strictures against the decision makers
