The Past that prevents the Future


It is an indisputable fact the just as the modern Muslims cannot and should not carry the cross for Babar’s sins, the vast majority of Hindus cannot and should not carry the cross for the heinous acts of lunatic Hindutva groups in Gujarat and Orissa, the present day Portuguese generation can’t carry the cross of their ancestors’ barbarism.

PPP (Pretty Private Profits)


But in Goa logic it seems is always in short supply. So instead of bolstering the Govt health systems, we have a peculiar predicament wherein crores of rupees are spent on specialized health care in the PVT sector via the Mediclaim schemes and now this infamous sweet heart deal with Elbit (an Israeli company who will put up its first tertiary care hospital in India) that again seeks to put public health in a favoured Pvt hand at tax payer cost putting all other super speciality hospitals in Goa to a significant unhealthy disadvantage.READ

Article 19 And All That Jazz


Unless, we can get our Act together and demonstrate to a man (and woman ) that we are completely committed to stem the rot, the rest of the country will care fiddle sticks for us, and the land mafia will continue to treat us like a bunch of chorus girls and boys, happy with a few dollars thrust into our panties.READ

Some Christians esp. those of South have always had a hostile attitude towards other religions including Hindus! The kabrastan issue depicts the very same fact. These xenophobic people are ready to queue for Portuguese passports but cannot tolerate another Indian settling in Goa.
