Conspiracy of upper cast

Konkani! Marathi! English!


Konkani, we shall continue to speak, whether we study it or not, being our mother tongue. The study of Portuguese language did not destroy Konkani neither has the study of English language, done so. If grants are released to English medium schools it would sound the death knell of Marathi, since not many parents will send their children to Marathi schools. READ

History repeats

Chauvinism versus Patriotism


That being so, why does the RSS and its sister organizations not hold camps of its patriotic swayamsevaks and call upon the army, to select from its cadre?

Will the RSS at least now prove its patriotism and provides its cadres for recruitment into the army? It is time that the Sangh Parivar cadres display their patriotism on the Indo-Pak border! That is where the threat lies.READ

Dear Mr. Gracias, I am writing on behalf of a close friend in Mumbai. I have found her mother's birth certificate and grandparents baptism, marriage and death certificates. Unfortunately I want to know the position as to whether Portugues Law recognises parents that are unmarried. In another words: illegitimate children. My friend was born in 1955 and unable to find her parents marriage certificate. She would like to seek Portuguese citizenship directly from her mothers side - the goan connection. I would appreciate a response if this is feasible and under which specific Portuguese part of the Nationality Act. Many thanks and regards. Viona Philips
