A Saddening Report From Baina Of Vasco – by Floriano Lobo
Wednesday - Jun 1, 2016
We were at Vasco meeting people when we got a call that there was a lot of action with 200 policemen on a demolition spree of the Baina traditional fishermen's huts etc. When we landed there, the scene was chaotic but very much under control, with the fisher folks themselves dismantling their own
A Preview Report Of The New Garbage Treatment Plant – by Clinton Vaz
Tuesday - May 31, 2016
To begin, I’m no expert on waste management, but I do run a business with Emma, my wife. I have also been working with waste since 1999, and have seen 8-10 waste treatment plants in India as well as some in Europe. This again, does not make me an expert, but I can say that with my hands on experience, I do understand how they work. So first, let me give you an explained
Goan Freedom Fighters Take Note – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim
Tuesday - May 31, 2016
One of the major reasons of our sufferings in Goa since 19 December 1961 from the successive State Governments in providing good governance was the silence of the Freedom Fighters over the mischief played by our politicians. While admiring all the genuine freedom fighters who genuinely worked and
Narendra Modi Has Fooled The People Of India – by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - May 30, 2016
Prime Minister Narendra Modi may be technically right as he had only promised ‘Acche din’ and had not assured of any better nights. More than the Foreign Minister, he is always touring the world and has been unable to gauge the plight of the poverty stricken across India. He has not cared to even visit the drought affected farmers for whom sadly suicide has been the only way out
Goa On A Deep Slide – by Aires Rodrigues
Monday - May 30, 2016
Today is Goa Statehood day but there is nothing to celebrate about. Goans now realise the trap they got into by craving for statehood. An illusion gone awfully sour. With statehood the common man has lost but only the politicians have become crorepatis. As a Union territory, we were ably managed with 28 MLAs and a cabinet of four. Today Goa is totally mismanaged with 40 MLAs and a jumbo cabinet of
Blowing In The Wind – by Peter Fernandes
Monday - May 30, 2016
How many crimes should the politicians commit, and expect the electorate overlook? How many times should the politicians betray the trust of the people, and expect voters continue to believe in them? How many times should the common man come on the streets innocuously to protest and be pushed
Isn’t Liberation A Cruel Joke When Goa Is In Chains? – by A. Veronica Fernandes, Candolim
Sunday - May 29, 2016
On 19th December 2015, Goa completed 54 years of its conquest by India from Portugal. (Supreme Court of India – Monsg. S.F.X. Monteiro V/s State of Goa 26 March 1969). This was followed as seen above, by the treacherous the so called Indo-Portuguese Treaty of 31st December 1974
Saturday - May 28, 2016
think most have a fundamental misunderstanding of India. Yes I know, India is a democracy and all that. But this is a rather superficial understanding of the country. You might not have heard of India's territorial disputes in the news, but this doesn't mean India does not have them. In fact India (with the possible exception of Bangladesh, since I read that India and Bangladesh have
Judges Should Lead By Example – by Aires Rodrigues
Saturday - May 28, 2016
In a move towards transparency and accountability, the Judges of the Supreme Court of India in 2009 began making their assets and liabilities public on the court’s website. However of the current 29 Supreme Court Judges four of them have not yet made their assets public which include Justices

The state of Goa’s financial mess is reaching dangerous proportions. Nobody is willing to raise the red flag as the ones that are paying the price are ordinary tax- paying Goans and they are mostly ignorant of the fact. While the leaders that are consistently flashed on the media as saviours continue to overstretch the budget, hoping when it comes to light, they would have already
