Editorial: The scar remains on Goa’s pristine beaches
25 Sep: Herald. The death of Scarlett Keeling will always remain a deep scar left on the pristine beaches of Goa. Eight years after the British teenager’s body was found on Anjuna beach, the Children’s Court acquitted the two men who were accused of drugging, sexually abusing and leaving her to die. While one of the men, who was acquitted left the courtroom saying that ‘justice has prevailed’, for Scarlett’s shocked mother Fiona MacKeown, the verdict brings no closure. Her daughter was found dead in 2008 and two autopsies gave differing verdicts. She had waited four years, till 2012, to bury the mortal remains of her daughter hoping that the case would be resolved by then. Yet four years later she still does not know who killed her daughter. She has now vowed to challenge the verdict in the higher court but at the same time said she has neither the financial resources nor the strength to wait another eight years while the appeal is heard and decided… The court has ruled that the two men accused of culpable homicide are not guilty. Will someone tell us who killed Scarlett? … 670 words. For further details click here

Goa on a CRASH course
25 Sep: Herald. Though most of the accidents happen due to rash and negligent driving on Goa’s busy roads, the bad engineering of roads and the infrastructure also plays a vital role in many mishaps.

Lisbon, through the eyes of an artist
25 Sep: Herald. “Unlike most of the artists who consider nature their greatest source of inspiration, for me, it has always been the cities that give a boost to my creativity and motivate me to paint,” expresses artist Deviprasad Rao, whose latest collection, ‘Lisbon Calling’, will be the exhibition that marks the beginning of this year’s Semana Da Cultura Indo- Portuguesa ( Goa) celebrations. Deviprasad is a self- taught abstract artist who loves playing with abrupt lines, dots, squiggles and amorphous shapes to create abstract art that gives an illusion of reality. Lisbon Calling comprises paintings that are a reflection of Deviprasad’s experiences while travelling through the city of Lisbon in Portugal… 990 words. For further details click here

Houses, fields and a way of life lost forever come alive in a documentary on a Goan ghost town
25 Sep: Scroll.in. Like Atlantis, Kurdi sank beneath the waves three decades ago, but unlike the Atlanteans, the people of Kurdi lost their homes to industrial development. Every summer, when water levels recede, the ghostly remnants of the Goan town resurface, and the people of Kurdi, since relocated by the government, find themselves inexorably drawn to the water-wrecked ruins of their former lives. Kurdi, or Curdi, a town in Sanguem, a municipal council in the South Goa district, was last inhabited in 1986, when water from a growing reservoir finally claimed the remaining bits of habitable land, submerging an area of 6,000 acres and dislodging more than 3,000 people. Re-membering Kurdi, a documentary by Saumyananda Sahi, gives a distinctive view of the humble, touching and child-like ways in which a displaced people strive to maintain their voice and a sense of identity… 840 words + video trailer of the film, 2m. 01s. .

Nik Sharma: A Brown Kitchen: Fried chicken, with a nod to a Goan grandmother
25 Sep: San Francisco Chronicle. By Nik Sharma (photo) I’m used to dredging things with semolina when I fry. It’s a tradition that I absorbed from my Goan grandmother as I watched her cook. When we fry in Goan cooking, whether it’s shallow or deep frying, we use semolina to get an amazing crust on seafood, meats and vegetables. It gives fried food a richer crunch and texture than what you would obtain with flour alone… In my fried chicken recipe, I add flavor in every step, but each layer is seasoned slightly differently than the others. There’s garam masala, chile and turmeric in the marinade, and cracked coriander seeds in the dredging mixture… [At the link select PressDisplay] For further details click here

Goa: Settled under Palm Trees
25 Sep: NZZ Sonntag (Switzerland). Thousands are on their way to catch a glimpse of Saint Francis Xavier in his glass sarcophagus in the Baroque Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa. Even some Hindus worship the saints… Above all, is it not a miracle that his body - 464 years after his death, still reveals facial features? Feet, one hand (the other is along with forearm in Rome), skin and hair? … Velha Goa was until the end of the 17th century as "Rome of the East" and "Golden City". It was bigger and more beautiful than Lisbon or Paris. But Malaria epidemics plagued the residents. They fled to the West Coast twelve kilometers away and founded the present capital of Goa, Panaji… What remained of the lost world city, the magnificent cathedral, two convents, churches and the Basilica do Bom Jesus, a Unesco World Heritage Site… 1126 words.

25 Sep: Navhind Times. By Patricia Pereira-Sethi. … "Cheats are cheats," commented a Goan doctor friend living in London. "They eventually get their comeuppance and are exposed as entangled emperors without clothes." As MP for Leicester East, the 59-year old Vaz has proven himself to be a gifted self-publicist … Fortunately, there is an admirable British press that will doggedly pursue the case, unravelling the truth on all fronts … Is such a character a fitting example for us Goans? Would any respectable, god-fearing Goan mother want him to be an Uncle or a Godfather to her children? … The only positive point in the entire sordid episode is that Vaz is lucky enough to have a wife who graciously decided to Stand By her Man … Anyone who believes that Keith Vaz is being persecuted by the British press needs to readjust his thinking cap… Let's call a spade a spade.

Goan Catholics: A ‘dying’ community?
25 Sep: Navhind Times. By Frederick Noronha. … For Goa’s Catholics, history has been like a roller coaster ride … By the late 1960s and early 1970s, the traumatic developments in former British East Africa, especially Uganda, ended up ironically in bringing in so much talent back here… But, barely a decade or so later many of the children of those who had returned were finishing their education, and readying to once again migrate themselves … Goans worldwide are, in some ways, victims of their own ambitious. The growing trend towards seeking foreign passports – not just Portuguese – has been widely commented upon. Unlike other Indian migratory communities, the Goan Catholic is seldom known to return home once (s)he migrates… the Goan Catholic appears rather headless as a community… The Goan Catholic community seems to be changing its form. Today, we have at least a couple of Goan villages in places like Swindon … 1091 words. For further details click here

24 Sep: Hindustan Times. Come October, thousands of non-resident Indian (NRI) volunteers of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will plunge themselves into a routine of making calls on behalf of the party to potential voters in Goa and Punjab for a few hours every day.

The blot on the Goa holiday experience
23 Sep: Herald. Tourists who visit Goa have been taking back bad memories of their unwarranted brush with the law enforcement authorities – the traffic police. Tourists claim only rented bikes with the yellow number plate are stopped and not a single Goan two-wheeler is stopped even if the rider isn’t wearing a helmet… Herald was able to confirm their stories when our team rode on NH 17 at Porvorim and saw traffic cops immediately stop Indian as well as foreign tourists riding on rented bikes with yellow number plates even if the rider was wearing a helmet. Not a single Goan bike was stopped, even if traffic rules, such as rider not wearing a helmet, were violated. As traffic cops noticed photographs were being clicked, they followed the Herald team and asked that the photos be deleted, they also sought to know what photographs had been clicked. They, however, admitted that a majority of the vehicles they stop are tourist bikes… For further details click here

It may takes balls - in both the literal and metaphorical sense - to even contemplate a pair of budgie-smugglers, but they have one undeniable advantage: if people are staring at your neatly packaged junk they aren't looking at the uncovered rest of you. Although don't go there if there's any of risk of hair extruding beyond their confines like a pair of curly groinal sideburns. Best, of course, to opt for a modest length and a roomy cut… 578 words.

The Portuguese nationality bug
21 Sep: Herald. By Cleofato Almeida Coutinho. With the Election Commission attempting to delete Goans with Portuguese passport from the electoral here, a new bug has caught us. Goans were Portuguese and they did not give up Portuguese citizenship and continued to be so. After the Indian troops marched into Goa, the conferring of Indian citizenship on Goans (deemed Indian citizens status) did not divest them of Portuguese citizenship as they neither voluntarily accepted Indian citizenship nor they gave up Portuguese citizenship… For further details click here

21 Sep: The Goan. A cash-strapped Goa government has approached the Centre hoping that it will bail it out for two of its flagship projects -- the third Mandovi Bridge as well as the Saligao mixed waste treatment plant. Both the proposals, have however, been ignored. In a meeting with the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, Goa’s Chief Secretary R K Srivastava sought a reimbursement of the cost of the third Mandovi Bridge to the tune of `540 crore as well as the reimbursement of the Saligao Solid Waste treatment plant and funding for two additional similar plants in Goa. The government had also sought `70-cr for organising BRICS summit in Goa besides funds for its sewerage network in seven towns and 24x7 water connectivity in the State … For further details click here

In pictures: India's dying Christian communities
19 Sep: BBC. London-based photographer Karan Kapoor has recorded some of India's dying Christian communities who are trying to preserve their identities in rapidly changing times. The son of well-known actors Shashi Kapoor and the late Jennifer Kendal-Kapoor, Kapoor himself is of both Indian and British descent. The other community he has chronicled are the Goan Catholics, probably the largest inheritors and defenders of their Portuguese heritage. Most of his pictures were taken in the 1980s and 1990s and they focus on people and places that have either been lost to history, or changed beyond recognition… Taken in the 1990s, these photographs capture an older Goa: the last of 'Portugal Goa'… 603 words + 11 photos.

The connection will come with 1GB of free 3G or LTE data, and 100 minutes of voice calls.

Book Review: Bwana Karani. By Mervyn Maciel
Sep. 2016. British Empire. Bwana Karani is an autobiographical account of the life and career of Mervyn Maciel in Kenya stretching throughout the post-war period until just beyond Kenyan Independence. It is an eloquently told story … What makes this book so intriguing is the perspective of the author… This book also provides something of an insight into how the Goan community came to play such an fundamental role in imperial government in the mid-twentieth century… If anything, I would say that this book is a book about communities… Every settlement seems to have had a Goan club or institute of some kind which provided an important social venue … the author was finally allocated European style accommodation, after some hectoring, whilst working for the Agricultural Ministry… 1455 words. click here

Goa: Oscar Rebello likely to be AAP’s CM face for 2017 elections

In a run-up to the state polls, Goa’s AAP unit has unanimously referred to the party high-command the name of Dr. Oscar Rebello as the Chief Ministerial candidate set-up by the party for 2017 polls. However, according to the party sources – the 48-year old M.D in Medicine has reportedly shown reluctance to take up the role, but the party hierarchy including AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal and National Secretary Pankaj Gupta (In-charge of Goa) are bent upon motivating him to take up the lead. During recent interaction with the media, Rebello clarified that he himself would prefer to continue as a volunteer for the party instead of polls as it would be difficult for him to balance along with his medical practice and family. But the state cadre has projected him as the most credible, upright and preferred candidate across the supporters of 40 constituencies in the state… For further details click here
