Economics with a dash of Goan wisdom


To my mind, it is this hypocrisy of the government that is being challenged day in and day out and the reason why the aftershocks of GST and demonetisation (both necessary structural changes) will continue to be severe and reverberate frighteningly in the corridors of power. READ

Goans are not Corrupt to vote Corrupt Congress.

Goans are not Communal to vote Communal BJP.

It is the EVM which projected Goans as Corrupt & Communal in the last Assembly election.

All Like-Minded Goans Must Form “GOANS AGAINST EVM” And Demand Voting In Goa Only With The Ballot Papers.

Kudos to you Dr. Oscar for voicing a different perspective which every politician in Goa tries to push under the carpet. Control and ownership of the land was undoubtedly an important issue Bamons of all shades; Gaud, Kudaldeshkar, Rajapurkars and Chitrapur united wholeheartedly to protect the land they controlled through temples and mhajania act.

Bahujans who voted for and anti-merger are still fighting among themselves, while those who either rule or head political parties including Shiv Sena in Goa belong to a caste that always controlled political and economic power in this tiny state. Catholic community has lost its spunk due to rampant migration and the fear of rising violent communalism.

Osmitai has been turned into a joke by an agent turned politician who claims that Goenkarponn and Konkani is in his blood due to his pedigree. But in reality he is alleged to be a front for likes of Xavier Marques. His new ally and commander in Taligaon is a notorious history sheeter who has turned that village into a concrete jungle. No one wishes to question him as how he can talk of saving Goa and its environment while building his own house in the middle of a paddy field? Or how he amassed such a wealth through the land deals? And who bought this land from niz Goenkars?

He is perceived as a successor of the current Chief Minister with blessings from pontiffs and businessmen from the community. He can’t afford to lose his nuisance value. Obviously he is trying create a mass base among the Catholics. And your thoughts have caught him with his pants down, Dr. Oscar!

Well said, Dr. Oscar! Kudos to you for raising issues which are being pushed under the carpet by wily politicians. The marginalized bahujan samaj that voted for merger still fights as mundcars in Goa, along with mundcars from anti merger group.

The Bamon comprising all shades of Saraswats like Gaud, Kudalshekar, Chitrapur, Rajapur etc.wholeheartedly united to save the land they owned directly or indirectly through temples.

This same tribe is controlling Goa using self proclaimed jokers from the Catholic community that has lost its spunk due to rampant migration and a feeling of insecurity in the wake of aggressive communism.

'Osmita'i has been turned into a cruel joke by an agent using politics to further his interests. It is amazing as how a real estate agent allegedly used by likes of Xavier Marques as a front for land deals claims to run Konkani and Goenkarponn in his blood and talks about Goa's wefare. the track record shows that his own house stands in the middle of a paddy field and his his newly appointed , notorious agent has turned Taleigaon into a concrete jungle.Those who shout loudest about Goenkarponn seem to be the front runners while selling Goa to non Goans.

I wonder why no one demands an inquiry into the source of income and rapid prosperity of this rising star, perceived as a successor of the current Chief Minister!!, Is it because of the protective cushion of his caste around him?
