Let Cuisine unite Konkanis


Konkani cuisine is one of the richest in India. The culture of co-existence has found roads to travel this cuisine by breaking all the barriers of caste, religion, regions and countries.

कोसंबी घराण्याचा ‘वारसा’ सांगणारी मीरा


कुठलंही विधान नुसता अंदाज बांधून करायचं नाही ही त्यांची भुमिका एका संशोधकाला शोभण्यासारखीच होती. आपणास ठाऊक नसलेली गोष्ट समजून घेताना एखाद्या विद्यार्थ्यासारख्या नम्र होत. परंतु एखादी गोष्ट पटली की मग अजिबात मागे-पुढं पहात नसत. कुणाचाही मुलाहिजा न बाळगता बेधडकपणे ती समाजापुढं मांडत. READ

Kadamba glorification at Kranti Maidan?


Why should this autocratic dynasty rule have a place at a symbol of a struggle for Democratic Rule? Like the ‘colonial hangover’ of the Portuguese era, we also need to give up the ‘feudalism hangover’ of the 16 dynasties Goa faced, from almost second century till the 20th century. READ

Why church intrusion is deplorable. Temples are allowed to be misued for BJP gains by conservative hindus. MOI is a dead issue only kept alive by conservative hindus. church will tell its followers to do what is right. RSS can hide its tails between their legs. There is no place for RSS in goa. Beware RSS if you try to antagonise liberal hindu and christains brethren then remember what happened in vasco decades back

It is a sorry state of affairs that MOI is discussed on political and communal platform

In a democracy , parents have the choice of MOI

However grants are for improving literacy and uplifting national and endangered heritage

The intrusion by church in political affairs is really deplorable.

The Church plays vital role in Goa's Assembly elections than RSS cadres is a truth which nobody can deny. BBSM has started mocking themselves by raising the outdated issue of MOI in the coming elections. Mr Parrikar is smart enough to understand all this poli- tricks of BBSM and RSS by protecting his vote bank.RSS votes are almost negligible in Goa and it will be replaced by Catholic community votes which prefer BJP over Congress. Mr Velingakar has no standing as a RSS leader in Goa. The Bishop's word is more vital to Goa BJP in the coming elections.

MOI was not a serious n contentious issue in 2012 poll. Congress was targetted and defeated because it had become "shishupal". But many claimmed credit. This time too MOI will not be poll issue. Real issue will be thrown in our face by the main contenders in the last hours. And we will be confused. Cake will go to same hands.
