One Meter distance, please; The Virus is around you!!! (By Dr Oscar Rebello)


But as Delhi and Mumbai have demonstrated effectively, if you educate people to enter stores strictly 4 to 5 at a time and keep a mandatory safe distance of 1 metre outside when waiting it is possible to prevent the mayhem and chaos.READ

Goans are immune to COVID 19…. Really??


Frankly, I think our window of opportunity is over and my guess is we will see exponential increases in the infection rate and deaths in coming weeks. We refuse to heed scientific evidence coming out of China, Korea, Italy and Spain. This then brings me to my original poser. Are Goans immune to COVID 19?? READ



The virus, much to our disappointment, makes absolutely no distinction between Hindu or Muslim or Christian or Sikh. Certainly not the rich or poor. It just gets eveAryone. By their unmentionables. So if you are looking for a ray of sunshine, it's a very democratic virus.READ

You misfired Rama Jalmi.... Badly!!!


Can we insult Gods, in a deeply religious society, all in the name of freedom of expression?? The operative word is INSULT. It is not to be confused with questioning patriarchal, casteist and other ills that are prevalent in every religion and require revisiting, rethinking and reformation for the greater good of mankind.READ

Don’t misjudge Rohan Khaunte’s arrest!


Is this what Goa has descended to?? An elastic police force busy collaring helmetless drivers, turning a blind eye to the flourishing drug and sex trade and efficient at protecting the dubious "honour" of all BJP card-holding members?? A fascinating future indeed.READ

Will you; Ms Alina?


I am absolutely certain that Ms Alina Saldanha will also be vehemently vocal and up in arms when many of her comrades in the BJP, locally and nationally, abuse genuine Indian Muslim citizens as “Pakistanis” in the most vile and derogatory manner.READ

Vijai's Adventures!!!


So why Shivsena then?? Now that SS is the toast of Mumbai/ Maharashtra it makes sense to cosy up to them, promise the puffed up guys, an expansion into Goa and see if he can fill the GF coffers with Maharashtra money since most Goan industrialists are dead broke themselves.READ

Back in Action!!!


This Mhadei threat is very real, people. Our culture and language and caste and religious wars can wait. Because even if we have to yell and fight with one another on these issues, as we always do, we will need at least a glass of WATER to clear our throats.READ

 Dear Navy, make it 100 kms…


The Naval authorities should firmly state that single dwelling houses and bungalows of individuals will face no hassles whatsoever.READ



When are we going to ask those tough, consistent questions of our political class and importantly fattened bureaucrats, living off tax payer money?? Or is that a job to be outsourced to a poor Valmiki Naik or a Girish Chodankar while we just grunt, groan and moan in our safe private spaces??READ
