Goa's Oldest Online News Portal


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

Goa, Going, Gone


Come election time you will let all your fears get the better of you, go back to your familiar caste, language and religious corners and back the same corrupted Congress charlatans in different Avataars or the BJP with yet another promise of NEW Goa or something. READ

Need unqualified apology from Fr Conceissao!


How different is Fr Conceissao sermon of vitriol and abuse different from the hate speeches made by assorted and forever angry Sadhvis, Yogis and Hindutva fanatics and some mad Mullahs who call for arms we encounter so regularly in our miserable lives these days ?? READ

Of AAP & Goa & the wrestling of one’s consciousness


I cannot see how AAP contesting just 20 odd seats in the country, with no formal alliance can challenge the hegemony of the Modi-Shah duo. The worst thing will be if we end up spoilers, in what could be the most significant election of our lifetimes. READ

Screw the Opinion Poll Day!!!


To be honest, if I was born in a subaltern family, suppressed for centuries by a colonial power, I’d vote to merge with Maharashtra in a 1967 maybe my options would have been better there.READ
