Indian ‘nation’ of commerce. By David G. Maillu
13 Apr: Kenya Times. Excerpt: … The Indian nation, imposed on Kenyans by the British colonial kleptomania, brought three distinct communities, The Hindu, the Goan, and the rest. Initially, these three groups have lived with practical dislike for one another. The Goans, coming from the Christian colony, were actually the first ones to be sympathetic with the natives, perhaps, because they found comrades sharing the same religion. They expressed their solidarity even through marriage at a time the other two groups protected their women the way lions protect their young ones from predators. Click here.

For an unusual account of the walk on water by Jesus Christ, Goan Voice (UK) readers will find a fascinating explanation provided by a Florida University professor. His claim is that Christ could have walked on a floating piece of ice. This "less than miraculous" explanation from his study found an unusual combination of water and atmospheric conditions which could have led to ice formation on the Sea of Galilee. The ice would have been largely invisible to onlookers.

Discover the unusual story of how Jaffna, in Sri Lanka, became Catholic en masse overnight and why it reverted to Hinduism with equal alacrity when the Dutch replaced the Portuguese in 1658.

"The only way to save Goa is to fight the politics of fear and speak out against all those who are responsible for trying to turn Goa into another Gujarat." These are the alarming words following a report "Broken Peace: A Fact Finding Report on the Communal Violence in Goa in March 2006." The excellent report is by Nandita Haksar, a Supreme Court lawyer. Find out from Goanet how to obtain the report on-line.

Finally, there is yet more from Domnic Fernandes on Goanet and specifically on his introspective historical account of events and life in Goa of old. This time, we are offered a " Reminiscent Tour of Mapusa Town in the 1950s." The account is in three parts. Thankfully, Domnic has finally succumbed to pressure from many eager readers to soon have his articles published in a book. Indeed, he has already received orders for signed copies of the forthcoming book. By way of a brief comment, I feel that the book would make an excellent present for Goan and non Goan friends and that the first print is likely to run out very quickly.
